Glasgow’s Twin Atlantic
Announce the “˜Twinstagram Mosaic Project’ Letting Fans Dictate Artwork For a Limited Edition Lithograph
Band’s Critically Acclaimed Debut Full-Length, Free, Available Now on Red Bull Records
Produced By Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Jimmy Eat World)
Glasgow‘s TWIN ATLANTIC, who just wrapped up their SOLD OUT U.S. tour as support for AWOLNATION and Middle Class Rut, have announced the launch of a groundbreaking new promotion in partnership with popular photo social networking site Instagram.
The Twin Atlantic ‘Instagram Project’ will be launched on December 2nd and is the first of its kind. The project will pull in fans’ Instagram uploads tagged with the hashtag #freetwinatlantic and pull them all into their own grid allowing fans to interact with their own photo socially and share it with friends via Email, Facebook walls and Twitter.
But that’s not all… once enough fans have done it, exclusive content will be unlocked, like a FREE download of the Hadouken! remix of the song ‘Make A Beast Of Myself’, very special acoustic videos and a few surprises too, meaning fans of the band can get their mitts on some great goodies!
As the fans’ pictures continue to grow, the photos will be pulled into a mosaic image of the ‘Make A Beast Of Myself’ single cover of the Virgin Mary and made into a lithograph composed of all the fans’ images. This very special litho will be available for presale during the promotion.
Twin Atlantic’s critically-lauded debut full-length, FREE, was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica , CA with legendary producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Jimmy Eat World). Free, the follow up to the well-received debut EP, Vivarium, expands upon the band’s signature sound, melding angular riffs with energetic choruses. Explosive and hard charging, yet melodic and thoughtful, the tracks cut deep and ring true to the listener, leaving a lasting impression.
The video for the title track and current U.S. single Free” was directed by Howard Greenhalgh (Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun”) and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TAJ_be8S8A.

Praise for Twin Atlantic’s FREE:
…an ambitious and truly spectacular debut… Free is the sound of a band losing the chains…and writing songs that the hairs on the back of their necks adore… Holding nothing back sounds exactly like this, everyone else please take note. 9 out of 10″- Rock Sound
“A record so strong it’s hard to single out standout tracks, and even harder to locate points of weakness, and by anyone’s standards, this is one hell of an achievement.”- Kerrang!
…densely woven guitars and rattling choruses…Twin Atlantic are doing nothing wrong and much that is right–their future looks bright indeed.”- Q Magazine
“A great rock band that will continue to push more doors open for themselves…4 out of 5- Alterthepress
