The Iron Horses Return with Stunning New Single, Salvation
Touring Through Sept & Oct
Golden Robot Records on Friday, October 12.
“Salvation is our biggest track to date!” says The Iron Horses vocalist, Duncan Welsh. “It’s a great insight into what’s coming on the album. That ethereal reverb runs all the way through the track and the chorus hits like a heavy weight. We were rehearsing for a few shows in mid June and began jamming on this chord progression while we were in the studio. I had written a new track a few days previously and I wasn’t quite sure how the lyrics were fitting with the melody.
“I tried the lyrics on this new track and it really started to flow. As far as we were concerned, the album was done and dusted so initially, we thought we would leave it as a demo for the second album. After a few weeks, it was really bugging me and I came to thinking this was actually the final piece on our debut! The label agreed and we were in the studio a few weeks later!”
