NEW ALBUM FUTURE LOVERS OUT FRIDAY 29 JULY

Set to release their debut album Future Lovers on Friday 29 July via UNFD, Melbourne-via-Auckland heavy agents Banks Arcade are igniting the lead up to their maiden LP today via Used, a brand new bouncy ode to self doubt in the digital age.

Ramping up the energy following their previous introspective single Be SomeoneUsed is a high octane blend of alt rock riffage, spitfire vocals and sprightly melodics, with the accompanying music video capturing the band in full film grain-soaked and CCTV glory amid the chant-worthy chorus.

I wrote Used with nothing but rage in my heart after spending the day literally doom scrolling for 7 hours straight,” says vocalist Joshua O’Donnell of the new track’s inception. “It’s a million questions about the future, it’s anxiety, it’s an angsty rant, and it screams at you ‘I don’t know if this shit is gonna get better but god I hope it does’. The song dances with the feelings of failure from the perspective of someone who believes they are on the brink of success but can’t stop doubting themselves.”

Armed with a dazzling array of metal, electronica, hip hop and more, Future Lovers is primed to stun new and old Banks Arcade fans alike, while also leaving the metaphorical door wide open for heightened innovation and explosive sonic palettes in the not-too-distant future.

And while all eyes are currently on the future of Banks Arcade, the group’s recent powerhouse showing in the UK at both The Great Escape Festival and Download Festival also further cemented the quartet’s electrifying live presence, dazzling with their energy and no holds barred tunes alongside 400 up and coming artists from around the globe in Brighton for The Great Escape, and taking full flight in Donington for Download amongst the likes of Iron MaidenDeftonesMegadeth and Sepultura

Fans can catch Banks Arcade currently on the road with ThornhillDayseeker and Gravemind around Australia this July, with the group also set for a mammoth 27-date regional tour supporting In Hearts Wake, alongside RedHook and Pridelands.
