Mallory Knox will be releasing their brand new single ‘Ghost In The Mirror’ on 18th August, the first single from their highly anticipated second album ‘Asymmetry’, out 13th October 2014 on Epic Records.
Last year was a year crammed with achievements that quickly established Mallory Knox as one of the hottest new British rock bands on the block. Standout tracks from the album such as Lighthouse and Beggars stormed their way onto discerning playlists everywhere. It saw them nominated for Kerrang! Awards and culminated in a deal with Sony. It also saw them triumph at support slots with Don Broco and A Day To Remember, on their own headline tour and at festivals from Slam Dunk to the main stage at Reading and Leeds.
Recorded at Moles in Bath and Monnow Valley in Wales with legendary Pixies/Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton, ‘Asymmetry’ finds Mikey Chapman (vocals), Sam Douglas (bass/vocals), Joe Savins (guitar), James Gillett (guitar) and Dave Rawling (drums) giving ‘difficult second album’ syndrome the swerve by taking Mallory’s trademark, anthemic rock sound in all sorts of new directions.
“This album sees us really develop as musicians and as a band,” declares Mikey. “The heavier stuff is more credibly heavy and the poppier stuff is more genuinely poppy. It’s an eclectic mix of everything we love musically.”
After being premiered on Zane Lowe on Radio 1, which saw them trend on twitter, Ghost In The Mirror has now been added to the Radio 1 C List 4 weeks before release.
Mallory Knox will play the main stage at Reading/Leeds Festival on 22nd and 23rd August, as well as a warm up show in Norwich at The Waterfront on 20th August.
