"giving We Are Animal's 1268 another
spin this weekend to give a little boost
for the tour. Its such a classic."
Tom Robinson BBC radio 6

"IDOLISE is raw, big and ace"

Highlife guitars meet kraut-ish tendencies,
synths and swooning vocal harmonies in W//A//A

This We Are Animal album is serrated, slinky and
alive with sawtooth vibrations. Dim pap, bob pop

'We Are Animal’ somehow bring an industrial feel to indie rock.
Their song '1268’ is well crafted that includes a couple of nice
breaks and is overall a jump around your room, feel good song

If there is a band on the line up or who are most likely to throw a cup of their own wee into the crowd then it’s WE//ARE//ANIMAL" ace!

“1268? is both rhymically engaging and musically daunting,
giving images to that tree-bending moment from Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead,
there’s something about “1268? that actually scares the shit out of me!

This is high quality, melodic yet angular indie, produced in an impressively
quick turnaround, and certainly gives those bigger names who sit on ideas for
years something to reflect on.
They say they're animal and I'm not gonna disagree: these Welsh newbies
sound like they're rampaging though a forest having sniffed some particularly
tasty prey. 1268 is a feisty beast; both natural and supernatural.

oscillating riffery with cowbells…disco punk and big choruses

When We Are Animal put their album together earlier this year little did they know that it would be picked up by Japanese label Art Union. Add to this a distribution deal with Cargo and we now have an official UK,US, Germany and Japan release date for their exhilarating debut. Idolise hits the shops on the 8th November and is a mixture of rousing hooks, weird sounds, ear-grabbing riffs and a nice bit of cowbell.

We Are Animal are natives of North Wales and can be found in their natural habitat at the foot of Mount Snowdon. It is here that they trek off into the wilds to walk, contemplate and put together the music and melodies that make up the band’s sound.
They record all their songs the day they are written, (bar one or two vocal parts) on basic equipment. They use whatever space is available in various households, slate quarries, fields, woods and old folks homes (“we don’t have the monies to record our music in a studio”) around their local area. This unpretentious, DIY approach to making and producing music means that the sum total of their output is something rather exciting and original.
Their music is characterised by buzzing guitars, pummeled drums, great hooks and impressively accomplished song writing. There is no way this band can be less than a year old, but they are. Since forming in December 2009 We Are Animal have been prolific both in their output and their live presence ever since.
Armed with their home demos they have already been playlisted on BBC Radio 1 + 6, XFM, NME Radio, Kerrang and Juice FM and a bagful of regional programmes. NME highlighted We Are Animal as their breakthrough artist of the week in late August, and a brief search of the blogging world reveals a growing and enthusiastic following. They were also asked to play Radio One’s Big Weekend in Bangor by Huw Stephens who is a big fan.

2011 saw the band out in SXSW where they were invited to share the stage with some of the world's leading bands, they made a lot of contacts out there and are fast becoming talked about behind the closed doors of the industry, they went straight off to Europe and played 5 sold out headlining shows which is still baffling them to this day. On their European tour they found out that their debut demo rammed album 'Idolised' was nominated for XFM 'best new music of 2011' and up against all the big guns!

Their debut single ’1268' was released on ‘Too Pure/Beggars Banquet’ in June followed by their self released September single ‘Black Magic’. Both appear on this special 12 track Japanese edition of their debut album.

'TACLA EP' will be released on the 21st of November 2011
