Fangclub have announced their second album.

The Irish rock trio will release 'Vulture Culture' on July 5 through Vertigo Records, following an isolated month-long recording session at Giant Wafer Studios in Wales with producer duo Alex Loring and Tom Andrew. Discussing the stint, drummer Dara Coleman said:

"We always work best in isolation. I jokingly went into it saying 'I'm willing to lose my mind for this album'. Around day 20, things started getting weird - I started getting paranoid that everyone in the house hated me." 

Vocalist and guitarist Steven King wrote the album's lyrics at the last minute to ensure they were as raw and honest as possible. He added:

"There was a real atmosphere of obsession from everybody. It's the craziest thing I've ever done. The theme of the album became violent, there's a lot of violence in the tone of it, towards yourself and other things.

"It comes off as a heavier record because I didn’t have time to hide the real stories. It really captured something. The pressure added to it, like 'that line's pretty revealing but I have to put it down, I don’t have anything else.'

"We could've gone in and made another debut, this punk thing with loads of hooks, or I could back myself into a corner. It’s a strangely revealing and personal album but I don’t feel afraid to share it because it’s almost as if I’ve expelled the things."

"We are so proud of this record.  It's a culmination of a lot of chaos and inner mental violence which almost capsized the band. Making this record got us through the fog and we have a new lease of life. The energy is real, the chaos makes sense and the violence is fuel for the fire."
