Scottish Rock group Twin Atlantic will be chatting with fans on Absolute Punk this coming Monday, December 5th at 3PM EST (8PM GMT). They will be talking about their current single “Free”, touring, and answering fan questions.
The band are currently touring the UK on their headlining Free-ze Tour, and just recently wrapped up a successful tour of the US with label mates AWOLNATION, and Middle Class Rut. A Free-ze tour teaser is now available here: http://youtu.be/hg0WEhPqnF8
2011 is shaping up to be the year of Twin Atlantic. Following a UK Top 40 and number 2 album in the rock chart, the quartetâ€™s meteoric rise to the forefront of UK rock is an amazing story. The band rocked crowds all over the UK and Europe this summer, major radio and TV stations are adding the band to their playlists, huge press features are running and an enormous amount of love for the band on fan forums have shone a bright light on one of the best bands in the UK.
Their full-length debut album â€˜Freeâ€™ is an inspiring collection of songs full of ambition, pain, belief and soul. In a world of music dominated by talent show winners, mass-marketed bands and meaningless music, here, finally, is a band in which to invest your heart.

2011 has been an incredible year for Foster The People. Columbia Records is proud to announce that the Los Angeles based trio has received two GrammyÂ® nominations for â€˜Best Alternative Albumâ€™ and â€˜Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.â€™
This news comes on the heels of the bandâ€™s gold certification of their celebrated album Torches. Earlier this month the bandâ€™s single, â€œPumped Up Kicks,â€ was certified 3x platinum. The band recently made stops at SNL and Ellen to perform the hit single. They also made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman where they played their second single â€œHelena Beatâ€ and next month the band will return to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to perform their next single â€œDonâ€™tâ€™ Stop (Color On The Walls.)
Torches gained global attention with its Top 10 Billboard chart debut in May. The album is chalk full of â€œupbeat, multicultural left-of-center popâ€ songs that are shaped by Mark Fosterâ€™s â€œsharp pop songwriting and crisp productions,â€ explains the Los Angeles Times who were early supporters of the local band. To date Torches has generated singles in â€œPumped Up Kicks,â€ â€œHelena Beat,â€ â€œDonâ€™t Stop (Color On The Walls,)â€ and â€œCall It What You Want.â€
For Foster the Peopleâ€™s next single â€œDonâ€™t Stop (Color On The Walls),â€ the band worked with the UK MVA â€˜Video of the Yearâ€™ awarded duo Daniels to film a 3D music video for the Nintendo Videoâ„¢ service on the Nintendo 3DSâ„¢ system. The video, which co-stars Gabourey Sidibe, will debut on December 8th in 3D without the need for special glasses on Nintendo 3DS systems. Itâ€™ll also air on MTV, mtvU, MTV Hits, MTV.com and VH1.com. Tune into MTV2â€™s 120 Minutes on December 9th and VH1â€™s Top 20 Countdown on December 10th to catch the video.
