Welsh rock band Pretty Vicious are back and ready to build your anticipation for their debut full length album. The band just dropped new single “Are You Entertained?” which kicks up the energy of their recently released single “Move.” The pair of tracks each showcase the band’s ability to capture the raucousness of youth with impressive howling vocals and churning guitars. And as we move to year’s end, Pretty Vicious are ready to make their biggest mark yet with their long-awaited debut LP in early 2019.
For the past few years, Pretty Vicious have seen the upsides and downsides to the music industry from the inside. When the group were barely into their career, they were plucked from their hometown and quickly dropped head-first into the industry. Early on their experience was filled with being caught in the middle of fighting execs and dead-ends. But all that turmoil led the band to be picked up by U.S.-based executive Julian Raymond of Big Machine Label Group. Seeing their potential to fit into Big Machine’s new rock label, Raymond gave them a chance and now they’re primed and ready to take over.
The band were lined up with producer Dan Austin (You Me At Six, Twin Atlantic, Pulled Apart By Horses) for the recording of the debut album, which has now been completed. “Are You Entertained?” marks the band’s slow rise to its release. And although no title or date has been set yet, it’s clear that Pretty Vicious are a band set to destroy. Their confidence in crafting electrifying singles is sure to pay-off when we get to hear the album in full.
In the meantime, give a listen to “Are You Entertained?” below.
