3rd album from this Scottish indie-rock band. I feel they've shown potential in their first two releases, without doing anything truly great yet. Hopefully this record changes that.

I can't see an official release date, but some places seem to be saying Autumn, so that'll have to do. No artwork or tracklisting yet. They're also doing a big US/UK/EU tour, dates can be found here; http://wewerepromisedjetpacks.com/

I thought their first album was great. Still the best band name.

You're crazy, WWPJ is one of the best bands ever.

One night when you're having a bonfire with your friends, put on some headphones, crank It's Thunder And It's Lightning, and run off alone into the darkness.

The album will be out on the 6th October.

New track;


Album or single artwork, not entirely sure. Probably just the single.

Think that's the album artwork. I remember seeing it before in a news post saying it was I think.

Only listened once, but first impressions are that's about on par with their other records. Which are all good BUT, not great or remarkable. Their last two albums sound like they've been on the cusp of doing something genuinely brilliant, but at the moment it all feels a bit like unrealised potential. Good songs, but maybe they don't quite have the talent to elevate themselves like some of their peers within the whole Scottish indie scene. The instrumental track stood out as my favourite I think.

Again, only had one listen though.

Edit: This is my 10,000th post. I swear I've passed that milestone like two or three times recently. Weird.

I liked this, but I think a lot of the songs are a little bit too long. It drags and bleeds into itself just enough to be bothersome
