The 11-track album cements Miles Kane’s as a modern day rock n roller, the work positively brimming with anthems with his signature grimy guitar riffs and experimental tempo changes.
 
Produced by Ian Broudie (The Zutons, Echo and the Bunnymen) the record features co-writes with Broudie, as well as XTC’s Andy Partridge, Paul Weller and Kid Harpoon. The album is available in standard CD, vinyl and digital download and deluxe edition with three extra tracks which includes 2012’s Record Store Day release ‘First Of My Kind’ and ‘Start Of Something Big’, which was co-written with Weller and recorded with Miles’s band.
 
From the glam-rock inspired ‘Taking Over’, through the sing-along classic title track and next single which also impacts June 3rd ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ was an undisputed highlight of the NME Awards Tour in February.
 
Other highlights include ‘You’re Gonna Get It’ which was co-written and performed with Paul Weller at this year’s NME Awards, party-starter ‘Tonight’ and the Radio 1 A-Listed first single ‘Give Up’ – the latter both co-written with Kid Harpoon.
 
Miles says: “The one thing I wanted for the new album was that there had to be no fat on any of the songs. They needed to sound really lean. The blueprint for it, before I'd even gone for the rock n' roll and glam-rock vibe, was that it had to sound incredibly direct.”
 
Miles Kane will play 11 UK dates in May and June, with the album launch party taking place at London's Dingwalls on Friday June 7thMiles is also set to play the John Peel stage at Glastonbury this year with his stellar band; George Moran - rhythm guitar/backing vocals, Jay Sharrock - drums, Ben Parsons - Keys and Phillip Anderson – bass.
