ARCANE ROOTS set to release brand new single ‘Slow’ on May 20th through Play It Again Sam
- Debut album ‘Blood & Chemistry’ released May 6th
- UK May headline tour announced, full list of dates below (including Banquet Records in-store acoustic show on May 1st and London show 9th May at Electrowerkz)
- A summer of festivals include Truck, ArcTanGent, Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape, BBK in Bilbao and many more TBA
ARCANE ROOTS will release their huge, brand new single, ‘Slow’, on May 20th through Play It Again Sam. Following the free download track ‘Resolve’, ‘Slow’ is the 2nd single to be taken from the outstanding debut album ‘Blood & Chemistry’, which will be released on May 6th on download, CD and gatefold vinyl.
Andrew (Groves, guitar and vocals) explains a bit about the meaning
behind the song: “Slow is a reminder of what you have and what it means to you. Even when you take something or someone for granted over and over again. It was one of the first songs written for ‘Blood & Chemistry’ and it also took the longest to complete and record. This long and difficult process actually ended up serving the song perfectly by making each section of the song chronological to the lyrics. Every time we revisited the song again we added new parts and I amended the lyrics to become more relevant to my feelings at the time. It now reads like a story from having to be reminded of what you have and the spark between you, to finally admitting what your actions had been telling you all along and finding the spark again.”
Live wise in the last year, ARCANE ROOTS have supported both Twin Atlantic and then Dry The River, as well as headline their own Kerrang! Magazine award show in London (their 2nd such show). They have also played the likes of Hevy Festival, 2000 Trees, Sonisphere, Liverpool Sound City, Camden Crawl, Y Not, Hit The Deck and many more. They were recently on tour across Europe as main support to AWOL NATION (Jan/Feb 2012), and will follow their May headline dates and summer festivals with further UK and European headline and support tours, all TBA in the coming months.
Full list of UK dates below, with main support coming from The JCQ. First on bands across the tour have all been hand picked by ARCANE ROOTS, and include some of their favourite new, up and coming bands like Baby Godzilla and In Dynamics.

The weather is great, and Summer is just around the corner.
It’s the perfect time to crank up some chilled out surf rock tunes.
Beach House and Best Coast couldn’t agree more.
They both released their new albums today.
The albums provide the two sides of the transition from Spring to Summer.
Beach House brings the dreamy loveliness of frollicking in a meadow surrounded by flowers in full bloom while Best Coast provides a call to arms for the beach-bound.
