More on The Struts:

The Struts continue to build excitement for the release of their forthcoming Big Machine Records debut. The new album's title track, "Pretty Vicious," is out now on all platforms, following a live performance of the single on Good Morning America and GMA3 today. The LA-by-way-of-the-UK rockers topped off the afternoon with an exclusive interview on NMD Radio with Zane Lowe to dive in on their highly-anticipated, full-length project.

“It was a completely instant track,” frontman Luke Spiller says of recording the new song. It opens with Spiller crooning, “When you talk and everybody listens / and you walk and everybody whispers,” in a smoky, sultry tone. “Those lyrics were very instinctual,” he adds. “They aren’t super clever, but they felt right. It’s more about the vocal delivery. That's what makes it dark and sexy. It’s not overthought. It felt great from the moment we started to write it.” The original demo of the song went viral on TikTok after the band shared it online, later going back into the studio to perfect it for the album release. “For me, it’s the best song on the album,” he admits. “It’s something we’ve never done before, and it has this undeniable mood to it. I still go back and listen to it purely for pleasure.”

The Platinum-selling rock juggernauts, who have collaborated with the likes of Kesha and Tom Morello and opened for The Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters (the latter of which dubbed them "the best opening band we've ever had"), have hit their stride, harnessing the raucous nature of their live shows and transmuting it into a full-length project. Produced by The Struts, alongside Julian Raymond (Freddie Mercury, Cheap Trick), and executive produced by Scott Borchetta, the group has managed to infuse their arena-sized energy into their most concentrated and exciting songs to date with Pretty Vicious, out on 11/3
