Manchester, UK punks Loose Articles have announced that their long-awaited debut album, Scream If You Wanna Go Faster, will be released on 7th June via Alcopop! Records. To celebrate the news, the quartet have today released the album’s lead single Mr. Manager via all good digital service providers. Commenting on the new track, the band say: “Mr. Manager is a song about being stuck in the daily grind of a managerial nightmare. A job is a job until it becomes an occupational hazard!”

On the live front, the band have a huge support slot with Foo Fighters this summer, a freshly announced May support slot with The Lovely Eggs, a UK co-headline tour with label mates CHROMA, plus appearances at Hit The South Festival, Right To Roam Festival, Rebellion Festival, Green Man Festival and Edinburgh Psych Fest with further dates to be announced

A rollercoaster of a release, forthcoming debut album Scream If You Wanna Go Faster covers everything from the highs of being pinball champions to the lows of having to deal with rubbish jobs and managers, inviting all-comers to jump aboard and throw those hands in the air like you just don’t care. The Loose Women juggled gigging every weekend in 2023 with their 9-5 jobs, somehow finding time to write and record the album, and then still managing to make it to the pub for a pint or two to celebrate.

“We blasted it out in two lots of long weekend sessions to keep the energy high and fast paced, just like our live gigs. Thanks to the fuel of an array of Pot Noodles and medicinal drugs we created a Loose Articles extravaganza bedazzled with big riffs, footy whistles and cowbells to keep you on your toes!”

Keeping true to their roots, the band recorded, mixed and co-produced the record up north with partner in crime Ian Stewart at Salford’s Blueprint Studios with the album mastered by Katie Tavini. The recording sessions were full of laughs, synchronised dancing and claps, creating the perfect pinball sounds and the odd cheeky trip to celebrate at Elbow‘s favourite pub, The Eagle Inn. The record will be available on a limited run of leopard print effect vinyl and 4 different footballing CDs, each one representing a different band member (Everton, FC United, The Corinthians Ladies FC and Loose Articles FC).
