Press To Meco are a band we here at Rock Sins have been enjoying since the early days of the band over a decade ago. So we are very pleased to be reporting the news that Press To Meco have today announced their brand new album Transmute. Transmute will be released on Marshall Records on the 11th of June.
The first single to be revealed from the album is called Another Day. The music video for the track is available for your watching and listening pleasure below:
On the subject of their new single, Press To Meco drummer / vocalist Luke Williams explains how it was written at a crossroads in the band’s future.
We wrote Another Day at a time when we weren’t even sure if we wanted to continue being a band. It’s about being at your lowest point and having resentment towards a dream, an ideal or a relationship you probably should have given up on a while ago. It talks about the aversion towards doing the positive things you know will help you and the inclination to continually put those things off.
Joined by their new bassist and longtime friend Jake Crawford, Press To Meco embarked on an adventure between UK lockdowns. They, along with their producer Machine, constructed a ramshackle studio in a 16th century lodge tower in the Cotswolds. The power of IKEA furniture is not to be doubted! In spite of the many difficulties the band has faced along the way, the end result is an album the band say is their finest work. A refinement of their earlier math rock approach, whilst still maintaining the musical identity that is unmistakably Press To Meco. The artwork and tracklisting for Transmute can be found below:
