The Vines all set to Ride back to Winning Days


Story: Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the success of their debut long-player, Highly Evolved, The Vines have announced that the follow-up, Winning Days, will be released in the UK in late March. It will be preceded by the single, Ride.

The album reunites the group with producer, Rob Schnapf, and is said to reveal a more melodically textured set of songs that retain all of the band’s infamously primal edge.

Scathing album track, FTW (Fuck The World) is currently available exclusively at all UK digital retailers (until January 19) and can also be streamed at www.thevines.com

The title, alone, suggests listeners will have to take notice of it, but the themes are also pertinent, given that the track is envisaged as a commentary on the state of the world’s environment.

The Vines’ history is a complete whirlwind: going from four unknown music fans, in Sydney, recording songs to old cassettes, to one of the most talked-about new bands in rock.

They scored a huge hit with lead single, Get Free, and, as a result of the success of Highly Evolved, have headlined massive festivals, and sold more than 1.5 million copies of their debut worldwide.

The positive title of Winning Days is, perhaps, the biggest clue that the album is taking a slightly warmer approach than its gritty predecessor.

But while the band has maintained their ability to create incredibly primal rock 'n’ roll, the new album is said to find them orbiting more musical planets than ever before.

Hence, there are 'upbeat folk songs', suhc as Rainfall and Sunchild, sitting alongside the way-out psychedelia of TV Pro and pretty acoustic balladry of Autumn Shade 2 and Amnesia.
