Comprising of Gerry Norman (guitar/vocals), Ian McHugh (guitar/vocals), Troy Heaton (bass), and David Reid (drums), the Belfast/Sligo four piece share a bond of camaraderie and common vision that has compelled them to improve upon each release, pushing themselves further and further in their pursuit of greatness.
A Plastic Rose have now announced a UK tour with We Came From Wolves (details below) and have released a brand new track called ‘Foreign Soil’ from their upcoming album. [Camera.Shutter.Life which is to be released on the 22nd October 2012 through Di Di Mau Records/Third Bar.]
We took an early listen to ‘Foreign Soil’ and here’s what we thought:
A shivering grid of looting guitar-sound rushes in to greet you. Then an icy voice is heard struggling against the acid licks. The pace changes direction for a moment – as if it is lost. Then, with screams of anguish, the song howls back into view, piercing the darkness with a generous chording riff .
The verse seems beautifully at home in the blistering meshwork prison that surrounds it. But it is the oven-hot chorus that will make you scream with joy. With thumping percussion, spraying and threshing rhythms, and pulverizing bass- the finale is a cataclysmic climax that will shake you out from the inside. Devastating and essential.
