Due to overwhelming demand, The Struts’ exclusive UK headline show on Monday 18 September 2017 – previously announced for The Garage, Islington – will now take place at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.
The flamboyant four-piece comprising Luke Spiller (vocals), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums) left their native Derby for Los Angeles in 2015, but they are returning to the UK to play this hotly-anticipated date. The quartet’s London show is in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’, which arrives ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.
The recently-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is a taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due for release during 2018. The as-yet-untitled record will be the follow-up to The Struts’ critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.
Having recently played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and being included in Rolling Stone Playlist alongside the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Chance The Rapper and St Vincent, The Struts meteoric rise continues apace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.
The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock”.
Classic Rock claim: “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal sing-alongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have greeted the band’s new single with a series of ecstatic reviews.
