“…the kind of pummelling instrumentation you’d find on main stages the world over.”DIY

“…A snorting, snarling, four piece rock explosion…”Clash

United Fruit have released their brand new album Eternal Return, available to buy now via iTunes and Google Play.

Eternal Return is a heart-pounding blast of energy, hope and passion, featuring some of the band’s most accomplished songs to date, as each track unfurls and bursts into a cacophony of riffs, high soaring vocals and hectic beats that will leave you exhilarated by the end.

Ahead of its release, the album was exclusively streamed on Spin.

United Fruit’s recent single Where The Sun Beats Down is also available to stream now via the band’sSoundcloud page.

The Glasgow based four-piece have taken their time with Eternal Return, slowly teasing fans over the last few years with single Open Your Eyes and their Nightmare Recovery EP, which features three tracks on Eternal Return – ‘Ghost Inside Your Head’, ‘Nightmare Recovery’ and ‘Cause And Effect’. Press were quick to pick up on the band’s thrilling punk rock sound with The 405 noting that, if played loud enough, ‘Nightmare Recovery’ would ‘probably wipe all that shit off your face’. Stereogum also featured ‘Ghost Inside Your Head’ after the band played a showcase for the critically acclaimed site at SXSW and they have also picked up coverage on DIY,Drowned in Sound, Clash and The Skinny who have all been strong supporters of the band.

United Fruit will also be hitting the road this month, including an appearance at Glasgow’s Restless Natives Festival. Full dates are below:

  • 13/5 – Madhatters, Inverness
  • 14/5 – Restless Natives Festival, St Lukes, Glasgow
  • 15/5 – Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh
  • 21/5 – Tolbooth, Stirling

Comprising Iskandar Stewart (vox, guitar), Stuart Galbraith (guitar, vox), Marco Panagopoulos (bass) andDean Inglis (drums), United Fruit have melded their love of discordant, dissonant chords and melodies before destroying the rule book and creating their own unique sound upon its smouldering ashes. The result is Eternal Return – an eleven song beast that combines angular alt rock and pop, drenched in love, sweat and optimism.

From the uplifting riffs and driving beats of ‘Where The Sun Beats Down’, which channel the Smashing Pumpkins filtered through an early Rival Schools lens, to Iskandar’s signature anthemic rock vocals on ‘Golden Days’,Eternal Return feels like an exciting journey for the band and one that only scratches the surface of what’s to come.

Eternal Return is out now and is available to buy on iTunes and Google Play.
