“Two lovers or friends or whoever you want to interpret them to be, finally find the courage to leave the small town they are stuck in and head on down the road breaking all the rules along the way.

“It’s the opener of side two of the album, with a four on the floor beat, it should be a strong resident in the upcoming tour dates.”

In their lengthy career, Stereophonics have racked up six number one albums, 10 top 10 albums, 23 platinum sales awards, 8.5 million albums sold in the UK alone, five BRIT Award nominations and one BRIT Award win.
