Mallory Knox will head out on their biggest tour yet in November, in support of their highly anticipated second album ‘Asymmetry’, out 27th October 2014 on Epic Records/Search and Destroy.
Recorded at Moles in Bath and Monnow Valley in Wales with legendary Pixies/Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton, ‘Asymmetry’ finds Mikey Chapman (vocals), Sam Douglas (bass/vocals), Joe Savins (guitar), James Gillett (guitar) and Dave Rawling (drums) giving ‘difficult second album’ syndrome the swerve by taking Mallory’s trademark, anthemic rock sound in all sorts of new directions.
Sam describes the all-bangers-no-clangers collection as “the songs that we want to listen right now.”
“We just want to keep climbing,” says Mikey. “I fear for the day when we sit back on our laurels and say, ‘I’m OK with where we are now’. We’ve got to keep developing, keep learning, become better musicians on every level. Don’t shoot for the stars and settle for halfway.”
The tour kicks off in Coventry on 9th October and the shows will come thick and fast until the band wind up in London at the electric ballroom on the 26th. Full details can be seen below.
It’s probably also a good time to announce that The Musical Outcast will be bringing you a review of the album ‘Asymmetry’ next month so make sure you look out for that.
