Drenge announce new album Strange Creatures

29 October 2018, 11:22 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Drenge announce their new album Strange Creatures with some fresh UK tour dates for next year.

The Castleton brother duo Drenge are back with news of their third record Strange Creatures, their first since 2015's Undertow.

Speaking about their upcoming album, Drenge explain, “It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village? You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like it’s going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea.”

Strange Creatures was produced longtime collaborator Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, M.I.A, The Fall), and recorded at Sheffield's McCall Sound Studios.

Drenge released their Autonomy EP last month, featuring recent singles "Before the War Begins", "Fades to Black" and "Outside".
