Attic Theory Premiere ‘Papier-Mâché’ Featuring Kevin Martin Of Candlebox
Attic Theory Premiere ‘Papier-Mâché’ Featuring Kevin Martin Of Candlebox Ahead Of Highly Anticipated Debut Album ‘What We Fear The Most’.
The Liverpudlian rock group, Attic Theory, are gearing up for their most exciting and eventful chapter yet with the release of new single ‘Papier-Mâché’, which features Candlebox’s Kevin Martin on guest vocals. The band have premiered a new animated music video which is influenced by the 1975 psychological drama film, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’.
Papier-Mâché was recorded with producer Loïc Gaillard (Revival Black, Ashen Reach) at the Motor Museum recording studio in Liverpool.
Attic Theory’s vocalist Lewis Wright talks about the meaning behind the new single, “The ‘Papier-Mâché’ lyrics are about hiding your true self underneath a thin layered metaphorical mask because you have been convinced, by someone you used to be close to, that you are not behaving how they believe you should and the only remedy is for you to be strongly medicated and to suppress the feelings they don’t agree with. The message I wanted to convey is about being able to gain the strength to remove the mask and not let the past or anyone else define you.”
Lewis continues, “The animated music video (by Studface Productions) was influenced by ‘one flew over the cuckoo’s nest’ and is set in an old rundown insane asylum. This is the archaic perception of mental health and we wanted the video to symbolise that society has thankfully escaped those outdated ways of thinking and the band are rescued by an unlikely hero; Atticus T. Mouse.”
To collaborate with multi-platinum selling rock band Candlebox, a band which has sold over seven million albums worldwide, has proven to be everything Attic Theory wished for. “It’s been such a creative period for the band and we are so proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but this has been a phenomenal opportunity which we are especially grateful for. What a huge honour to have our friend Kevin Martin of Candlebox singing on ‘Papier-Mâché’. I’ve admired his musicianship for years and I am a massive fan of Candlebox so this is definitely a fanboy moment for me that has been ticked off my bucket list”, concludes Wright.
Since their inception just a few years ago, Attic Theory have been turning heads. They were awarded ‘BEST NEW Band’ by Planet Rock Radio for the ‘The Rocks Awards’ 2020 and their previous EP ‘The Sign of an Active Mind’ was voted NWOCR (New Wave Of Classic Rock) ‘EP of the Year’.
As seen on tour with Tantric, Elvana and Dead Man’s Whiskey, Attic Theory has played a number of UK headline shows, supported Terrorvision, Candlebox, Saving Abel, Tragedy, Black Spiders, Kris Barras, and played acclaimed festivals Planet Rockstock, Wildfire Festival, SavFest and Firevolt (Formerly Firestorm MCR).
With an impressive and dynamic sound, Attic Theory continues to build interest with their own take on alternative rock music, and with the announcement of the new single PLUS news that their forthcoming debut album ‘What We Fear The Most’ will be released in January 2024, it’s sure to solidify their position in the UK rock music scene. Ones to watch out for, and go see live!
Papier-Mâché will be available on all major streaming and digital download services on 28/07/2023, released via the bands own label ’ThunderGun Records‘ and distributed by Nova Music Distribution UK.
Attic Theory’s highly anticipated debut album ‘What We Fear The Most’, which features the singles ‘Papier-Mâché’, ‘Narrow Lines’ and ‘Tattooed Heart’, will be released 26/01/2024 and is available to pre-order now. Pre-Order Link – https://attictheory.store/collections/all
