The Skinny: LTNT are set to release their debut album RANK via Maybe Records (Karma To Burn, Toadies, Leogun) on March 11th 2016 and you can check out our exclusive stream of the album below.

RANK is full of raw energy, punk rock attitude and ethereal melodies. From the chaotic crunching guitars of lead single ‘Boss Lady’ to the pulsating riffs of ‘Oh Drag’, the heartfelt emotion of ‘ In The Back of Your Mind’ to the Bond-theme qualities of ‘Hold In Your Heart’. The album takes influence from both ends of the rock spectrum and tilts its hat to both heavy and melodic structures.

The album was produced by vocalist Liam Lever and Sean Genockey (Jamie Lenman) at Rockfield Studios in February 2015.

RANK will also come in the format of a magazine with vocalist Liam Lever saying “Making an album of just music is quite claustrophobic for us. There’s a lot of other things we want to get out there. We thought a magazine covered most bases so we set one up. There’ll be one every time we have any kind of musical release.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
