Post-punks TRAAMS have announced their second album Modern Dancing and shared its lead single "Succulent Thunder Anthem".
Speaking about the album, the band's Leigh Padley said: “As a band we felt more focused this time, we had a clearer idea of what we wanted. We got together with our label after we had recorded some of (what came to be) our first album, so recording Modern Dancing felt like making an album proper. We are very happy with everything we've put out but the structure of these sessions really helped us get stuck in and try new things. It was great working with MJ again too. It's generally a more positive record than our first, it's a bit brighter, and a tad more optimistic, ultimately it documents our first couple of years touring, new friendships and relationships.”
Modern Dancing is released 13 November via FatCat. It follows their 2013 debut, Grin.
To celebrate the announcement, TRAAMS are headlining The Social in London tomorrow night (5 August).
