The Lounge Society today release their much-anticipated debut album Tired of Liberty. Listen to the album here.
The last few months have seen The Lounge Society tease a string of singles from the album, each of which offered further insight into its direction and band’s state of mind. Across ‘Blood Money’, No Driver’ and ‘Upheaval’ we heard a band renowned for their genre-leaping use diverse sounds to explore the corruptive force of power and the lengths the mind can be pushed to.
Their live show has also reached new heights through this summer, earning them support slots with the likes of The Strokes, Wet Leg and Fontaines D.C., and festival appearances at Wide Awake and – next month – End Of The Road.
As the band releases the album in full, a new video directed by Niall Trask (Jamie T, Fat White Family, Nadine Shah) arrives for the song ‘Remains’, of which the band says:
“Remains is a track that is fuelled by a raw and physical sense of fear. It soundtracks the times when we feel most alone and yet most alive. The loneliest times for many of us are when we’re in a crowded room, when anxiety is in all parts of you, boiling your insides.
When it comes through the speakers, Remains is our biggest song. It’s designed to kick the doors down. In that way it gives us an outlet when we play it live. Because it takes up every ounce of our being to play it, there’s no room left for fear. We hope it can be a release for the listener.”
