Two Door discuss False Alarm!

Basement people of the world!

After hearing new singles Talk and Satellite, how about we kind of sort of hear what the band have to say about this new chapter? We got a sneak peak with Desiree’s wonderul interview, though this was done at a time where the band couldn’t say much. The band have just released a very in depth BBC interview in which they openly discuss what is to come!

The answers to life’s eternal questions…come on guys, you aren’t that older than me! Does such wisdom await me, too? Though I suppose touring the world in the somewhat public eye helps with the whole wisdom thing…

I think the article is a very good read. It points out some facts such as the band finally being on the cover of one of their albums or their upcoming gigs.

The first time they floated the idea of appearing on their own album cover, Baird remembers the band’s management saying: “Guys, this is amazing! We’ve been trying to get you to do this for so long!”

 

 

This summer they play one of the biggest sets of their career so far; a post-sunset slot at Glastonbury on Friday. “This year is huge,” Trimble says excitedly. “We’ve never played at night at Glastonbury before. Playing on a big stage when it’s dark, it changes everything.

They also discuss the artwork process and their work with the fantastic Aleksandra Kingo, if you haven’t checked out her work I suggest you do so real soon, it’s amazing!

Finally, the heart of album four is discussed, allowing us to make more sense or the title and the artwork, but also imagine what is to come!

“A lot of information reaching us instantly is unwanted, or unneeded,” he stresses. “Every time our phone buzzes, or something goes ‘ding!’, there’s an element of anticipation. It can be a little bit anxiety-inducing. And that’s where the name False Alarm came from, because most of it is needless.”

What do you make of this interview basement people?

As I said, I think it’s a great read, both enlightening and entertaining. I especially enjoyed the part whey they discuss the thoughts and feelings going into False Alarm.

Rather than pointing the finger at specific trends, or getting doom-and-gloom about the world we live in, the new record explores the “bizarre side of it and the absurdity,” he says. And the album’s off-kilter social commentary is channelled through shiny, funk-nodding pop; already found on singles Talk and Satellite.

Ever since Talk came out, and even more so since Satellite’s release, I’ve been feeling that False Alarm really fits in nicely with their three first albums, Tourist History being a fresh and neat debut album, Beacon being, as Alex said, a “safe” follow-up and Gameshow being, possibly intentionnaly, different and experimental. All three records are amazing and I have favourite songs off all of them, but I feel like with False Alarm, the band are simply and truly what they want, and as a fan, what more could we ask for?

Let us know how you feel about the whole thing on twitter and instagram!

UK Tour, a red parisian phone and more!

Hello my beautiful basement people, how was your weekend? Did you take some time off to listen to Satellite over and over again? How do you feel about it now?

As I said in my last post, I was simply lost for words after the bands facebook live stream and so I needed a few days to process everything. I’m back now though, and more excited than ever about False Alarm!

I love Satellite. I think Talk was the perfect song to release first and it’s a lot more groovy and dance worthy, however I feel closer to Satellite, like it speaks to me more, and brings me close to the band, if that makes sense. I love them both but I have to say I prefer Satellite so far! If you haven’t heard it yet, check it out now!

As for the rest of last weeks event, I am just so impressed with the way they went about it and announced the album. The live stream, the Q&A, the launching into space… Who does that?! Two Door Cinema Club, that’s who. They have put so much work into this record, from the actual content to the worldwide promotion of it, which is quite overwhelming for a fan. For anyone who has been around a few years, it’s such a unique experience to watch them grow as people and as a band. I’m extremely proud of the people they are and the work they have put out there and cannot wait to hear the full album real soon.

Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? Did you chose a bundle? I pre-orered the alarm clock one, I can’t wait for it to arrive! Only a few weeks left basement peeps… Here is the tracklist!

1 Once
2 Talk
3 Satisfaction Guaranteed (Ft. Mokoomba)
4 So Many People
5 Think Lyrics
6 Nice To See You (Ft. Open Mike Eagle)
7 Break
8 Dirty Air
9 Satellite Lyrics
10 Already Gone

I have a good feeling about So Many People…what about you basement people?! Doesn’t June feel like a lifetime away…

By pre-ordering your very own copy of False Alarm, you will of course receive the record after it’s release, you will also receive a unique pre-sale code to use for pre-sale tickets for the bands upcoming UK tour!

Hey guys!

It’s happening! We’ll be on tour in the UK this October!

So, how do you get tickets!? If you want to make sure you are at the front of the queue, we’ve arranged a pre-sale for our biggest fans. To gain access to the exclusive PRE-SALE on the 1st of May, just PRE-ORDER our new album FALSE ALARM.

You will then receive a unique code granting you access to the PRE-SALE.

Can’t wait to show all the things we’ve been working on in secret the past year.

The band will be playing the following cities:

What gig(s) are you hoping to go to? Remember, to have access to the pre-sale, pre-order False Alarm now!

If June still feels too far away (believe me, I get you) there is a way to listen to False Alarm before then…
That’s right basement people!

Tomorrow, 30th of April, there will be a very interesting red telephone in Paris (79, Quai de Valmy) which will somehow allow you to hear False Alarm weeks before it’s release!
I of course rang the number and got to a hear a 30 second clip inviting us to pick up this red phone in Paris tomorrow to listen to False Alarm. How amazing and exciting is this?!
I’m not going to lie, I am very tempted to go, but as you all know, sometimes life gets in the way of these things! Are any fellow french basement people going? Let us know (but don’t tell us too much)!

Finally, Satellite, after Talk, is Radio X’s track of the week!

There is so much going on right now, I hope I covered most of it, if I forgot anything important do let me know of course!

Talk soon my basement peeps (espcially my fellow french ami.e.s, please let us know if you pick up that phone)!

Much love,
Saoirse

Hello again my basement people,

Tonight was without a doubt my worst “live tweet” session ever. Here is my single tweet:

There are and will never be enough words in the world, or in the universe, to describe my love and admiration for Two Door Cinema Club.

Literally out of this world. I’m so proud of you three.

Their new album, False Alarm, will be released on the 14th of June. You can pre-order now here. What bundle are you hoping to buy?

You can listen to the new single, Satellite, online now.

I’ll be back over the weekend with more thoughts etc. on this my basement people, right now I need to let it all sink and just appreciate the amount of work these boys have gone to to make the best album ever, making us the happiest and proudest fans on earth…and beyond.

So much love,
Saoirse

An Evening with Two Door Cinema Club

My fellow basement people, how are you?!

Are you still getting over the amazingness that is Talk? Are you ready for more new material?
To help with the wait, check out this fantastic interview, “An Evening with Two Door Cinema Club” by the wonderful Desiree who was lucky enough to talk to the boys whilst they were in the Philippines for Wanderland!

 

You’ve been teasing us a lot about your upcoming album. Can you tell us more about it?

Kevin: No! (laughs)

Alex: All I can say is we’re very excited. There is an album, it’s finished. There’s not much more we can say. There’ll be a single at some point and then there’ll be an album. We’re rehearsing it, so at some point we’ll start playing those songs live. It’s the same thing that happens with every new album. That’s as far as we can go right now.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us Desiree!

As some of you may know, the 13th of April was records store day. Did anyone celebrate and if so how?

Ah, preferably yours Alex, of course… Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a new record to buy though?! I can’t tell you when it’s coming basement people, but I do have a feeling something is going to drop real soon…


Are you signed up?! If not, head over to twodoorcinemaclub.com now! Check out those emojis… It will all make sense real soon!

Until such time, stay amazing, happy and healthy and I’ll be in touch soon my friends!

Much love,
Saoirse.
