Kingston rock trio Arcane Roots release their new single 'Habibty' on June 11th along with the music video (directed by drummer Daryl Atkins) after recently signing with [PIAS] Records (Young Guns, Seasick Steve, Zulu Winter).
'Habibty' has a heavy start but sinks almost immediately into a slow, haunting melody infused with Andrew Groves remarkable vocal range and his occasionally indie style guitar riffs. I has received massive support already from Radio 1's Huw Stevens on his Ones To Watch show and Katie Parsons at Kerrang! Magazine.
They are currently working on their debut album 'Left Fire' which is an extended special CD edition of their original 8 track EP but completely remastered and including their new song 'Habibty' and additional acoustic versions of 'You Are' and 'Rouen'. The CD is looking at a release for early 2013.
They have toured with Twin Atlantic and Awol Nation, and played at a variety of festivals including Hevy, Sonisphere, Camden Crawl, Nass plus the Kerrang! Awards Show. Their first headlining tour in the UK saw a completely sold out show at London's Barfly.
Guitarist and lead singer Groves expresses his gratitude to PIAS on his band's breakthrough signing. 'We are all incredibly excited to be signing with PIAS, they have supported us from an early stage and their ethos and values tie perfectly with our own', he says. ''Left Fire' is what brought us to the attention of anyone who had heard it, and although it was written during a period of uneasiness, anxiety and turbulence in our lives, it served as a perfect, opening statement of what we are about and cemented what we are as a band.'
