New Politics Drop New Song, Reveal Upcoming Album

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.

Check out the new song below.

New Politics Cause Havoc in “Everywhere I Go”

newpolitics

New Politics has been making waves in the past year, going from opening act to headliners in under two years.

That’s a big deal especially from a band not from America and it looks like the Danish band are going to stay, especially when you have backing from Fall Out Boy and Pete Wentz is your fairy godfather. New Politics are signed to Wentz’s D2C2 record label alongside Panic! at the Disco.

Today, the band have debuted the music video for their latest single “Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens).”

The video, which was shot with the help of the group’s fans, features a car setting fire to the street of what appears to be New York, break dancing, demolishing televisions, graffiting a car, and a sick rock show in a tiny venue.

Yes guys, New Politics’ show is just as crazy as it appears on film. We know, we’ve been at one.

Check out the music video below.

Earlier this week, it was announced New Politics would be one of the bands to take the stage on night one of KROQ’s 25th annual Almost Acoustic Christmas alongside fellow label mates/ former tour mates Fall Out Boy as well as Linkin Park, Incubus, Rise Against, and more.

But before they get to that in December, the band began a short, Midwestern tour yesterday in Lawrence, KS at the Granada Theater. Today, they will be hitting up The Pageant in St. Louis. The rest of their tour dates can be seen below.

EVERYWHERE I GO TOUR DATES:
