It's been more than two years since Scottish indie rockers The Twilight Sad issued their most(ly) acclaimed sophomore album, Forget The Night Ahead. But there's a good reason why they took their time crafting their third album, No One Can Ever Know. As frontman James Graham has explained, the band has moved away from their "wall of sound" approach. Guitarist Andy MacFarlane further elaborated that they have gone with "a sparser sound, with a colder, slightly militant feel."
They received some help from producer Andrew Weatherall -- known for his work with Primal Scream and Fuck Buttons -- who helped The Twilight Sad in their experimenting with analog synthesizers. The result is an album that's been compared to the better releases from Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode. We'll be able to find out exactly what all this means when No One Can Ever Know drops Feb. 7, 2012 via FatCat Records. You can view the track listing below.
