We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of TTNG‘s live performance of their song “Coconut Crab” for Small Pond Session (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest album Disappointment Island, available now through Sargent House. You can check out excerpts from each track off the album below the video, as well as purchase it here.

Small Pond Session comments on having TTNG in the studio:

“We were stoked to host TTNG for a live show in Brighton alongside Tangled Hair & Delta Sleep, and even more excited when they agreed to pop down to our recording studio and film a session for one of the tracks from their new album ‘Disappointment Island.’ We’re all big fans of their technical ability and song writing, and they’re just great dudes!”

TTNG Nashville live review // Highlight Magazine

It’s a humid night in Nashville as TTNG steps on stage, patiently preparing to start the show. The crowd stares toward the group, anticipating the frantic fingering and snazzy riffs they have come to know and love from their favorite British math-rockers. As TTNG melds into their zone, the club becomes vibrant. Then almost as soon as the first song ends, silence falls across the crowd, but the energy still buzzes over the crowd, intently focused and waiting for the next tune.

“You guys are quiet,” singer Henry Tremain jokes while tuning his six-string bass.

Almost instantly his words are met with deafening screams and scattered woos.

“No that’s a good thing!” Tremain chuckles. “It means you’re paying attention.”

 

A “Fuck Yeah!” is launched from the back of the crowd, validating Tremain’s comments.

The upbeat demeanor and pleasantries of TTNG reflect that this isn’t their first rodeo, and that the boys cherish their career and workspaces. Having just released their third record, Disappointment Island, the band feels more comfortable than ever, and feels that not much has changed when the traditional narrative of a new album assumes otherwise.

TTNG Los Angeles live review // Grimy Goods

Words & Photography: Danielle Gornbein

TTNG, formerly known as This Town Needs Guns came on stage. These Oxford gents were cheered on by fans of all ages. Frontman Henry Tremain takes on lead melodic vocals and bass, while brothers Tim and Chris Collis cover guitar and drums. The three-piece prove top of their game when it comes to technical stylings. Beginning their set with a track from their recent album release Disappointment Island, TTNG were just warming up. The set didn’t even get to track number three before they broke a guitar string. Taking the time to grab a new one, fans anxiously stood by waiting for this magic to continue. They really are just that, magical. From any spot in the crowd, you caught people swaying with their eyes closed, hands up to the ceiling, even some tears being shed… all the feels were present.

Disappointment Island is TTNG’s third full-length studio album and most definitely not the last. These guys take such pride in their work and it shows through their deliverance. Well done, gents.

“TTNG take their care and sorrow into intelligent orchestrations that embrace complex patterns and don’t take them too far. They let them ride out into this realm of calm and deliberate palettes, making Disappointment Island more fun to be around.” - New Noise Magazine, 4/5

image

“TTNG has always been one of the few math-rock bands to have an innate sense of melody—something that’s improved after playing with the likes of American Football and rubbed off on tourmates like Tera Melos—and jams like “Coconut Crab” suggest that maybe there’s a benefit to knowing all that music theory.” - A.V. Club

TTNG streaming new album “Disappointment Island” on The Independent

The long-awaited third LP from TTNG (FKA This Town Needs Guns) is finally released on 8th July via Sargent House, and The Independent are exclusively streaming it three days before official release. Disappointment Island is the first album to feature the band as a trio after former bassist Jamie Cooper left in 2011 and was written in two sessions two years apart. One session took place at the beginning of 2013 and the other in 2015, with the band entering the studio to record later that year. Disappointment Island was recorded live to tape over 10 days at Chicago’s pre-eminent Electrical Audio studios by Greg Norman (Mclusky, Russian Circles, Pelican) and mastered by Shellac’s Bob Weston and, unbelievably, is named after a real uninhabited island off the south coast of New Zealand. Employing barely any distortion or guitar effects, the supremely intricate technical playing of guitarist Tim Collis makes for a beautifully wistful yet mathematically elaborate bedrock for bassist / vocalist Henry Tremain’s mellifluous tones and drummer Chris Collis’s atypical drumming patterns.

The artwork was created by Ukrainian artist and illustrator Irena Zablotska. ‘She’s a great artist’ says Chris. ‘We came across her artwork quite randomly one day. We always wanted to use it as the album cover, even before we had the title for the album. In fact, we had joked about Disappointment Island for quite a long time after we saw it on a map. When we were discussing possible titles, Tim remembered Disappointment Island, and at first we said ‘there’s no way we could call it that!’ But the more we let the idea sit, the more we liked it. It seemed to bring everything together really well - encapsulating the artwork, the lyrical content, and our struggles and stresses getting the album written and recorded. Recording live to tape was very pressured - trying to get all three of us playing perfectly all the way through was quite a challenge! In the end I am very proud of what we achieved and this album would not have happened without the great encouragement and support of our loved ones.’
