Long-running U.K. rockers THE WILDHEARTS will release a new single. "The New Flesh", on October 1. The CD version contains the title cut along with "Unbroken" and "Oh Bonita!" while the 7" version is on white vinyl and features "Unbroken" as the B-side.
The promotional video for "The New Flesh" can be viewed below.
THE WILDHEARTS' self-titled album was released on April 23 via Round Records. The CD was preceeded by a download-only single, "The Sweetest Song".
"The Wildhearts" was recorded partly at London's Strongroom Studios, partly at a country house in Ipswich, and at a haunted castle in the Midlands.
Commented mainman Ginger: "We are really proud of this album. It marks what honestly feels like a fresh start in what has been an up-and-down career for the band. Gone are the drugs and alcohol problems. There is a focus and determined spirit in the band now, which we think we have captured perfectly on this album. The melodies are still there, the big choruses are still there, but the mammoth guitar riffs are back and heavier than ever. We're excited to have you along for this fresh new stage in the ongoing legacy that is THE WILDHEARTS."
