They’re set to be one of the must-see acts at SXSW 2011 and here in the UK we don’t have to wait too long before Lower Than Atlantis hit these shores.

Out on the road with We Are The Ocean at the end of next month and set to release their new album on April 25, the frenzied fourpiece are well on course to take the rock world by storm.

And with Thursday’s SXSW set one of the hottest tickets at this year’s festival we can’t wait to read the reaction to the latest LTA show.

New album World Record will be winging our way very soon and singer Mike Duce said: “Writing was pretty natural because we’re with each other so much, we’ve all been listening to the same music and had the same influences.

“When it came to working on the songs, we all kind of knew where we were going. Recording was very efficient! We’d already demo’d the album live and then in a studio before recording the real thing so we knew exactly what we were playing and how we were playing it.

“The tunings for most of the songs have dropped two whole steps to add a darker feel. The tempo of the songs has slowed down too to give a more powerful feel and to make sure the listener definitely has time to get the message. There’s less of a jokey undertone lyrically so I guess it’s more ‘grown up’.”

Lower Than Atlantis look set to ride high on the wave of new British rock talent with this collection of songs, having already picked up some serious airplay on the likes of Radio 1, Scuzz and Kerrang! TV.

Touring is next on the agenda for the band who are currently on a mammoth tour of the USA supporting Asking Alexandria. When they return to the UK, LTA will head straight out with We Are The Ocean for a string of dates in their homeland to coincide with the release of World Record.
