Acclaimed UK rock band The Struts release “One Night Only”, the new single out on Polydor/Interscope Records. “One Night Only” is the first piece of music to be revealed from the band’s forthcoming album—the highly anticipated follow up to their 2016 debut Everybody Wants.

Of the track, lead vocalist Luke Spiller says, “This song is mainly about the relationship between a performer and his/her audience. After touring throughout the United States, we’ve developed a strong relationship with our audience and started to feel more responsibility to them—mainly to give a great show every night. The song has many theatrical moments, making the arrangement one of the most ambitious songs we’ve done. It’s definitely over the top and larger than life, but after experiencing our audience and how they react to our music, I think it’s even more fitting.”

The band has been touring nonstop since forming including worldwide headlining shows, prestigious festival plays and support slots for The Rolling Stones, The Who, Guns N’Roses, Mötley Crüe and The Killers.  The Struts will now be opening the first leg of Foo Fighters’ autumn tour across the US – see full dates below.

Formed in Derby, England in 2012, The Struts are Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).

“The guys are on course to be one of the UK’s biggest rock bands. ‘Everybody Wants’ is a real contender”  – Daily Star

“Reviving the glam rock lifestyle but also imbuing it with some downright mature 21st century sensibilities.” – GQ

Check out the new song from Peelander Z, “Ride On The Shooting Star” which is described as an uplifting, coming-of-age, “get-the-girl” song. It’s from their upcoming new album Metalander-Z.

The group bills itself as a “Japanese action comic punk band” and dresses like characters on a toddler TV show. (Members’ names include Peelander-Purple, Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Green and Peelander-Pink.)

During a concert, the guys are known to run around onstage, engage with the audience and do pretty much anything to pump up the crowd.

The album (the band’s eighth studio recording) is set for release on September 10th, 2013 via Austin’s Chicken Ranch Records. Some of the albums that inspired Metalander-Z include AC/DC’s High Voltage, Cinderella’s Night Songs, Def Leppard’s Pyromania, Iron Maiden’s Number of The Beast, Motley Crue’s Too Fast For Love, Van Halen’s 1984, and ZZ Top’s Eliminator.
