The Co. Down group first formed in 2007, and released their debut album, 'Tourist History' last year. The brought them huge success over 2011. With an ever-growing fan base they took to the stage at many festivals over the summer, not just in the UK and Ireland, but in North America as well. For many people all over the world, Two Door Cinema Club was the sound of the summer.
The band have channeled in some hip-hop influences into their upcoming album, which is expected to be released just in time for summer 2012. Alex Trimble, the band's singer suggested: 'All of us have been listening to quite a lot of hip-hop, the last year'.
But the band haven't abandoned their electro pop sound entirely, and this new project is much more about marrying the two styles. Alex continues: 'The hip-hop stuff is mostly in the drumbeats and basslines'
Its exciting to hear news of the evolution of the band. The Wild Geese kept their strong identity as they traversed the world, which is exactly what Two Door Cinema Club are doing.
When you put Sam's [lead guitar] guitar playing and me singing on top of that it becomes a Two Door hip-hop song rather than any other kind. Little pieces of everything are filtering their way in'
Two Door Cinema Club doesn't stand still. While working on their new album, they have also announced they will be headlining the 12-date NME Awards tour taking place throughout February.
Alex Trimble has said: 'We feel a real sense of achievement to have made it this far and be one among the incredible list of headliners on the NME Awards Tour'. But we have a feeling they're just getting started.
