Two Door Cinema Club: Are We Ready? (Wreck)

Many bands have broken up due to severe burn out, often caused by constant touring. After reaching this point, Two Door Cinema Club wisely opted for a very long break before regrouping and recording their third studio album "Gameshow", their first full-length since "Beacon" was released in 2012.

The Bangor, Northern Ireland trio won't be dropping the new collection of songs until October 14, but the lads have published the outstanding teaser track "Are We Ready? (Wreck)" to whet our appetites; hopefully a regular music video will follow the June 14 audio upload.

UPDATE: A comic video of the nightmarish kind was published July 6; the clip was directed by Auckland based director duo Sean Wallace and Jordan Dodson aka Thunderlips.

The band's busy summer and fall festival tour began June 3 in the U.S. and will also conclude in the U.S., with two weekend performances at the annual Austin City Limits Music Festival September 30 - October 2 & October 7 - 9. In between they'll be playing a string of shows in the UK, continental Europe and Asia. (Note: TDCC are also part of this year's Lollapalooza lineup in Chicago July 30)   (includes tour schedule)
