Just a couple of years ago, New Politics were playing supporting act for a newly reunited Fall Out Boy, but now, the Denmark-based band will be releasing their third studio album later this Summer.
The album is titled Vikings is set to be released on Aug. 14 through Pete Wentz’s label, DCD2, and Warner Bros. Records.
In order to get their followers pumped, the trio have released the (technical) second single off of the album; “West End Kids.” Reportedly, the track “Everywhere I Go (Kings & Queens)” which was released last September, was the first single from this upcoming new record.
When asked about the song, frontman David Boyd said via a statement: “The song is about Vesterport (West End), the area in Copenhagen where we once lived. It’s where we played some of our first shows, where we first fell in love, and first felt heartbreak. It’s also where we had to say goodbye in order to make the sacrifices needed to move to Brooklyn and live out our dream of playing music.”
An ode to home.
