The Struts - Pretty Vicious
The Struts have released their long-awaited Big Machine Records debut today. Pretty Vicious is out now on all platforms, alongside an in-studio performance set for The Howard Stern Show, now airing on Howard 101 on SiriusXM and streaming via YouTube. The release comes hot on the heels of electric Good Morning America and GMA3 performances, in addition to an exclusive interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe on The Zane Lowe Show.
The Struts have been a live sensation since they first erupted onto the scene with their certified-Platinum anthem, “Could’ve Been Me,” taking the No. 5 spot on Alternative Radio and introducing the world to their triumphant, timeless rock sound. Now, the UK juggernauts are back with their fourth album, Pretty Vicious, and for the first time, they’ve transmuted the raucous nature of their live shows into their most concentrated and exciting songs to date. “This record showcases each individual member’s strengths,” lead vocalist Luke Spiller says of their first full-length project with Big Machine Records. “It’s some of my favorite music, hands down, we’ve ever conjured up. It’s the record everyone’s been waiting for.”
Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut, 2016’s Everybody Wants, the British rockers set out on the road, bringing their energetic tracks alive on stage with larger-than-life performances and cementing their reputation as a must-see act. Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies have continued to prove themselves worthy of that distinction since first coming together in Derby, England back in 2012, selling out shows across the globe and leaving a trail of unbridled rock collections, including 2018’s Young & Dangerous and 2020’s Strange Days, in their wake. Their on-stage prowess and perpetual musicality have allowed them to reach the No. 1 Spot on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, garner more than 850M on-demand streams, and earn collaborations with Kesha, Tom Morello, Robbie Williams, Def Leppard and more. They’ve also supported the likes of The Rolling Stones, Guns N’ Roses, and Foo Fighters— the latter of which dubbed them “the best opening band we’ve ever had.”
