Lower Than Atlantis have just announced their much anticpated Irish return with a show at Bar Sub at Queens University, Belfast on April 18th 2015.
As Lower Than Atlantis wound down the campaign for their third album, Changing Tune, the band found themselves at something of a crossroads.
To the outside world, Changing Tune – LTA’s 2012 major label debut – had been the breakthrough record for this most beloved of British rock bands. It cracked the UK Top 30, helped the band fill venues the size of Shepherd’s Bush Empire with delirious fans, made waves in America and established frontman Mike Duce as that rarest of rockstar breeds: one in possession of equal amounts of mouth and trousers.
And Lower Than Atlantis’ fourth, self-titled album provides all the evidence Mike’s ex-girlfriend, former label and the wider world will ever need that this is a band about to take a major step up. The band invested their post-major label exit windfall into their studio and into self-financing another album and Mike – who had already been honing his writing skills composing for pop acts such as Five Seconds Of Summer (their #1 hit), an X Factor contestant and more to come– set about constructing the songs that will, in his words, make them or break them.
And against all odds, LTA aren’t just alive, but kicking harder than Solange Knowles in a Met Ball elevator. And, with the rock album of the summer under their belts, Lower Than Atlantis are finally ready to go higher than the sun.
