MUSIC NEWS: GLOO Announce New Album & Release Video For New Single ‘Ride’
Indie-punk trio GLOO have announced their new album How Not To Be Happy, due for release on 27th August 2021 via Hassle Records.
“I read a lot of self-help books myself, trying to look for ways to make myself happier,” says guitarist/vocalist Thomas Harfield. “But people don’t read one self-help book and then they’re fixed; they constantly read them – so maybe they don’t work at all! That made me think, Well, if you can’t learn how to be happy, maybe you can learn how not to be happy… I wrote these songs because I wanted to figure things out in my life. It’s an album for tearing shit up, having a good time, and forgetting about the world.”
The band have also released a video for their new single Ride.
“It couldn’t be better timing for this song to finally come out,” he adds. “Lockdown is coming to an end, summer is almost here and everyone?s ready to get outside again, skate, get fucked up, dance and… Ride!”
How Not To Be Happy is available to pre-order HERE.
GLOO will perform a socially distanced show at London’s Signature Brew Taproom, set to take place on 28th May 2021 – tickets are on sale HERE.
