It’s a crossroads at which any musician will eventually find themselves, ift hey’re fortunate enough. Once you have achieved all the ambitions that first compelled you to strap on your guitar, well… what next?
Home. For Twin Atlantic, this moment arrived in 2015, as the group were enjoying the greatest success of their career. Eight years after they first formed, seven years on from their debut EP ‘A Guidance From Colour’, their third album, 2014’s ‘Great Divide’, had topped the Scottish album charts, reaching as high as #6 in the UK. They had criss-crossed the globe multiple times, developing devout followings wherever they played. Their UK tour that spring had been a riot: playing Manchester’s Albert Hall, London’s fabled Brixton Academy, and a show before 10,000 fans at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro – their biggest hometown gig yet. Summer saw the band sub-headline the Radio 1 Stage at the Reading/Leeds Weekender and – closer to
home, and perhaps closer to their hearts – headlining the Radio 1 Stage at T In The Park. Drummer Craig Kneale published ‘Photographic Record’, a book collecting his photographs from the group’s first eight years together.
