‘No Sleep’ is a punk rock song led by the guttural bass and guitar riffs of McKenna and Mcnae climaxing with McTrusty’s roar of ‘I get no sleep” against a sound wall of insomnia inducing frustration. Musically it sets out the depth and sophistication of new album ‘GLA’ in a way the group have never before delivered.

Anticipated album ‘GLA’ was written in Glasgow, and the band repaired to Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles to record the album, working with Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Club) who had previously produced some tracks for previous Top 10 album ‘Great Divide’ (2014). Under his direction, they eschewed old school recording techniques, taping their parts separately.

This change in their recording process marked the grander ambitions of the new songs, while their dream mixer Alan Moulder (best known for his unforgettable work with Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Foo Fighters and My Bloody Valentine) came aboard to give the album the essential finishing touch.
