Scottish rock front-runners Anchor Lane release three new bonus tracks to celebrate the first anniversary of their chart topping debut album ‘Casino’ via R7 Records on Friday 5th February 2021.
Casino was released on 31st January 2020 with tremendous reception from rock audiences and headed straight in to the top 10 of the Official UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart. Speaking about the new tracks, the band said “We cannot believe we released “Casino” a year ago! We wanted to release these tracks as we are extremely proud of them and they deserve to be heard”.
The tracks include new offerings in the form of ‘Found Out’ and ‘Cruel World’ with a live studio version of fan favourite ‘Finished For Twelve’. Speaking of Finished For Twelve the band added; “When we were recording the album “CASINO” we felt like we needed to pay our final respects to our first EP “New Beginning”. We strapped on our instruments, hit play and went for it”.
The tracks were recorded at Vale Studios in the West-Midlands and produced by highly respected rock musician and Planet Rock Radio presenter Toby Jepson at the same time as the recording the Casino album.
‘Found Out’, ‘Cruel World’ & ‘Finished For Twelve (Live)’ will be available to stream & download via all major digital music platforms including; Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Youtube Music and Amazon Music.
