The Fratellis To Release ‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied’ On August 21

The Fratellis have announced the release of their brand new album ‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied,’ out August 21 via Cooking Vinyl and Pheromone Recordings.

Their new single ‘Baby Don’t You Lie To Me,’ is a foot-stomping anthem. Its fully charged nature is reminiscent of the energetic soul that paraded through their 2006 debut album smash ‘Costello Music’. But there’s a glorious new level to it, the sound of freedom, a force that runs throughout the album. After three full-length records (two top 5’s), a Brit Award, four sold-out nights at Brixton Academy and countless sell-out shows, exuding Zen-like calm, Jon Fratelli has embraced this newly found freedom, and boy does it show.

Following the release of 2013’s ‘We Need Medicine’, the Glaswegian trio (formed in 2005), completed by Barry Fratelli (bass) and Mince Fratelli (drums), spent a year touring the world. At the tail end of 2014, they decamped to LA to work on album number four with Tony Hoffer (The Dears, M83, Depeche Mode and Belle & Sebastian), who also produced their first album. With Hoffer at the helm, the band could revel in playing for the fun of it again, a feeling that radiates throughout the entire record.

Beginning in July, the band will embark on a huge world tour with two stops in Canada, in Vancouver 9/30 and Toronto 9/16. Known for their energetic and engrossing live show The Courier (UK) exclaims – “I’ve never seen an audience dance as hard or jump as high. This is what it’s all about.” – and In Your Speakers raves “Once in a while you hit a show that you just know is going to stick with you. The Fratellis, is one of those.” Get ready folks, the show is just beginning!
