On our homepage it states that we write about clothes, trainers and music, but when it comes to music we only ever really write about Marquis Drive, and their new track ‘Truth Don’t Shock (Zombieland)’ tells you everything you need to know about our deep admiration for the band.
Having supported major acts like The Farm, Shed Seven, Space and Reverend & The Makers the magnificent midlands based band were signed to Creation Records. Their first single after signing ‘Proud’ was a absolute banger which reached number 2 in the UK Vinyl charts surpassing David Bowies posthumous ‘Alabama Song’! And their brand new single ‘Truth Don’t Shock’ which is being released this Wednesday (24th) places the band in a whole new musical stratosphere.
Having been given an exclusive sneak preview of the track I was absolutely blown away by it, I know it sounds like an old cliché but the new single is by far the bands finest work to date, it really is that good. The official press release rightly points out that the track has big guitars, big production and a chorus to match, but more importantly for me it’s full of flavour, that all important flavour that seems to be lacking from so much of the bland generic modern day rock and pop.
When I first played the track it reminded me of some of the great scouse bands from the last few decades, so much so that my brother in law (when he heard it) said it reminded him of The Zutons, but in my humble opinion it’s far better than anything that The Zutons ever put out!
The new single is being released on various formats including Spotify, and there’s also a Vinyl release planned for later this year. There’s going to be a real buzz around this track and rightly so, so set your alarm early for the 24th and download your copy, trust me (which is more than my Mrs does) you won’t be disappointed!
