The Skinny: We Were Promised Jetpacks will release their highly-anticipated third album, Unravelling, this Fall on FatCat Records. Entertainment Weekly premiered the album’s lead track “Safety In Numbers” and said, “it brings together arena-ready drums, widescreen guitars, and a booming piano part in a way that should make fans of U2 and Coldplay-not to mention the epically bummed-out Scottish indie bands whose legacy the Jetpacks are working in-quite happy.”
In 2009 Adam Thompson (vocals, guitar), Darren Lackie (drums), Sean Smith (bass) and Michael Palmer (guitar) were a band of nineteen year old University Students, bunked up together in a tenement flat in the West End of Glasgow, Scotland. On signing to Fat Cat Records later the same year, the band could not have anticipated the journey they were about to embark on. Now, five years later, We Were Promised Jetpacks are ready to release their third studio album Unravelling.
