British garage-rock four piece Saint Agnes have today unveiled their explosive new single "Welcome To Silvertown", the title track to their eagerly-awaited debut album - due out on May 3rd via Death Or Glory Gang Records.
Self-produced and engineered by Luke Oldfield (The Wytches, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats), the recording captures the true rebel heart and energy of the band. Welcome To Silvertown is an single that is musically unshackled and an accurate snapshot of the band’s ferocious intensity, fusing the menacing frenzie of rock with a dark, cinematic flare. Born in a dingy sub-zero flat, the track is rife with themes of wild fantasy, escapism, emotional fragility and the inside-outs of living in East London’s district of Silvertown.
Set to coincide with the new release, the group bring the energy of their raucous live performances to London’s Camden Monarch on January 23rd, followed by a summer packed with festivals and European dates.
Consisting of Kitty Austen (Vocals/Guitar/Keys), Jon James Tufnell (Vocals/Guitar), Ben Chernett (Bass) and Andy Head (Drums) - Saint Agnes have clocked up over 200 shows across the UK & Europe already.
2018 laid the foundations for what is set to be a breakout year for the band, playing the mainstage at Kendal Calling, receiving radio support from Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and John Kennedy (Radio X), as well as festival appearances across Europe and sold out headline shows at The Lexington and Borderline in London.
