Song of the Week | We Were Promised Jetpacks – Hanging In

The WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is brightly focused on the killer new single, “Hanging In,” off the upcoming album, The More I Sleep The Less I Dream, from Edinburgh’s We Were Promised Jetpacks. We have been huge fans of the Scottish band since their outstanding debut album, These Four Walls, was released in 2009.

Since that time it’s been a hectic few years of writing, recording and touring for the band. With 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomach and 2014’s Unravelling the guys have traveled the world numerous times over, growing their fan-base exponentially in every country they visited. That kind of non-stop schedule would take a toll on anybody! They returned home to reconnect with family and focus on writing the new record, which will be self-released on September 14th.

We Were Promised Jetpack are Adam Thompson (vocals/guitar), Michael Palmer (guitar), Sean Smith (bass) and Darren Lackie (drums), and as I have said many, many times here on the site…these guys are a force to be reckoned with live! We are very fortunate here in Boston because they frequent our city on a regular basis and will return once again on Friday, October 26th for a stop at Brighton Music Hall.

One word. GO!

Pre-order The More I Sleep The Less I Dream
