New York based Hotline TNT have shared their new single and video Out of Town from their upcoming album Cartwheel.

The band will release Cartwheel on 3 November ahead of a run of UK dates including a Manchester gig at YES.

The new track explores infatuation and isolation alongside possibility and regret.  The song follows the lead single I Thought You’d Change and Protocol.

Speaking about the new single, Hotline TNT frontman Will Anderson said, “These days most people wouldn’t have the foolishness to start a song by singing the words ‘baby girl’ but I wanted to channel my Minnesotan roots and try it out, Paul Westerberg style. Matter of fact I think his influence is all over this tune, we had to betray the Bob Mould guidance one of these days and see how the other half lives. This one’s about losing someone you’re excited about before you even realized you had strong feelings about ‘em.”

Twelve track Cartwheel marks the bands follow-up to Nineteen In Love.  Anderson plays and sings nearly every note on Cartwheel himself. He recorded the bulk of these songs during two very different sessions: one with prolific art-pop-punk auteur Ian Teeple (Silicone Prairie), who pushed him to keep working on every idea, and one with bicoastal engineer Aron Kobayashi Rich (Momma), who encouraged him to get ideas down and keep moving forward.
