Band rocks up front in their own right

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - MUSIC SCENE -

SCOT­TISH rock­ers Twin At­lantic have had enough of play­ing sec­ond fid­dle. The four-piece se­cured high pro­file sup­port slots with Blink 182, The Gaslight An­them and My Chem­i­cal Ro­mance last year. But now they are ready to head­line their own tour which hits The Lemon Tree on Satur­day. Singer Sam McTrusty said: “A lot of our shows last year were as sup­port to bands which re­ally helped us. “How­ever now it is time for us to branch out and head­line as many shows as we can in our own right.” “Tipped to make

it big” Twin At­lantic sup­ported Blink 182 at the Aberdeen Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­fer­ence Cen­tre last year. Now they are rel­ish­ing a re­turn to the North-east to pro­mote new al­bum Free. “The aim is to get back to the places that we have played as a sup­port act,” he said. “This will be the chance to show peo­ple what we can do with our own head­line per­for­mance. “Af­ter this tour we also hope to play a lot of fes­ti­vals over the sum­mer months. “We aim to go as far and wide as pos­si­ble to let peo­ple hear about our new record. Hope­fully we will also play in Amer­ica.” Formed in 2007 in Glas­gow they have been backed as the lat­est Scot­tish band to make the break­through to the main­stream. “Be­com­ing big does not re­ally concern us,” said Sam. “All we want is to play mu­sic and travel. “If we do that and some suc­cess comes our way, great. But it is cer­tainly not a re­quire­ment.”
