British rockers The Struts have signed a new contract with the Big Machine label.
Forntman Luke Spiller commented, “I and the rest of The Struts are so happy and excited to announce that we are now part of the Big Machine family! We’re more inspired and focused than ever, and that mostly comes down to Scott and the rest of the team’s genuine love and enthusiasm for what we do. Watch this space as it is about to explode.
Scott Borchetta, President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group, added, “I’ve always loved the sound and swagger of this band and Luke is one of rock’s best frontmen. They’ve always had the passion, the time and the long miles, and now it’s time to take it to the next level. Welcome to the machine.”
Formed in Derby, England circa 2012 with a recent creative outburst in Los Angelesthe ironic swagger of vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott and drummer Gethin Davies is influenced by a mix of Queen the flair and audacity of Oasis.
The Struts name originated from a rehearsal observation as Spiller naturally strutted around the room as they performed in their early days. They have since found themselves massively embraced by some of the biggest icons in rock and roll history, opening for Foo Fighters, The rolling stones, WHO, Guns N’ Roses and Motley Crue.
NPR Music observed The Struts “reveal the supreme blend of massive riffs and powerfully catchy melodies that have already killed so many adoring audiences around the world” while The Aquarian believe they “helped breathe new life into rock and roll, while simultaneously making a sound all their own.
The band toured nonstop since their formation, including major world titles and major festivals like Lollapalooza, Governors Ball and Isle Of Wight, until COVID-19 brought life on the road to a halt. Yet a flirty, frantic jolt of transition gave their third album an outpouring of modern rock.
In less than two weeks, The Struts have composed ten tracks – including collaborations with Robbie Williams, Tom Morello and many more – for strange days. They have also recorded with Kesha, Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes, Joe Elliott and Phil Collen of Def Leppard and Paris Jackson. Aiming to claim their rightful place in the hellraiser lineage, The Struts will be touring the United States this spring. before heading to Europe for a circuit of summer festivalswhere fans eagerly await the return of the British rock band.
