Feb. 28 — Independent rock act Warn The Duke will release its latest album this spring through Wiretap Records.
The band’s new album, All That’s Solid, is scheduled for release March 17. The record will be the band’s first new album in eight years. In anticipation of its release, the band recently premiered the record’s lead single, ‘Anniversaries’ and the song’s video.
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Husker Du and The Clash. Keeping those bands in mind, it also makes sense to make a comparison to Foo Fighters here, considering there are many moments through that band’s catalog that are just as comparable to the aforementioned veteran acts.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the release of the album, single and video. The lyrics provided with the song’s video comes across as being rather introspective and contemplative. It finds the song’s subject wondering where life started going bad. That is just this critic’s interpretation.
The video for the band’s new single is a relatively simple presentation. It is a two-part story that on one side features the band performing its new single on a rooftop. The other side finds the band enjoying each other’s company in a bar setting, with some apparent miscommunication going on, but in a semi-comical fashion. It is an interesting presentation in its own right.
In other news, Warn The Duke is scheduled to hold a record release show March 17 in Brooklyn, NY at Our Wicked Lady. Fat Heaven, Something Bitter, and Sadlands are scheduled to serve as support for the show.
