Two Door Cinema Club debuted the lead single “Are We Ready (Wreck)” from their new album Gameshow last night on Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1.
The single is the first new release from the indie-pop trio since 2013’s Changing of the Seasons EP (not counting their live debut of Gameshow’s title track last week). The track encompasses all that we love already about TDCC: it’s dance-y, light and fun. However, the lyrics hold greater meaning to the band. They described the song to NME as “rebelling against [consumerism],” going on to say that, “the lyrics play on that and hating how the world is going in terms of commercialism and how people are addicted to social media and living on their phones.”
With the new single comes a release date for Gameshow: Oct. 14. The album is the third in the group’s library, following Tourist History (2010) and Beacon (2012). TDCC have been busy this year playing festivals like Bonnaroo and Governor’s Ball, the latter of which saw their set canceled due to rain. The band quickly relocated to an indoor venue and treated the audience to the title track of Gameshow.
