We Were Promised Jetpacks find 'Safety in Numbers'

Scottish quintet We Were Promised Jetpacks have spent years refining a sound that’s melodic but muscular. In the process, they’ve made some fairly big waves in the indie rock world. This fall, they’ll be releasing their third LP, Unravelling, on FatCat Records—and it has the potential to make the band some fans in a more mainstream setting.

The track “Safety in Numbers” brings together arena-ready drums, widescreen guitars, and a booming piano part in a way that should make fans of U2 and Coldplay–not to mention the epically bummed-out Scottish indie bands whose legacy the Jetpacks are working in–quite happy.

Rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks get lovely and violent for 'Medicine' video: Watch the EXCLUSIVE premiere here!

Edinburgh indie-rock outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks released one of the most critically-acclaimed albums of 2009 in These Four Walls, and after spending the better part of the last two years on the road with the likes of Passion Pit, Tokyo Police Club, and Jimmy Eat World, they’re back with a new album called In the Pit of the Stomach.

It hits stores on October 4, and like its predecessor, it’s full of spectacularly jittery guitar workouts that are heavy on melody and even heavier on Scottish charm.

The album’s first single “Medicine” is a prime example — sending great bushels of guitar fuzz and breathless hi-hats tumbling down a mountain of melody.

The song’s accompanying video is a thrillingly gritty affair that carries on the grand tradition of vigilante justice by way of elaborate super-hero costumes and in-your-face violence. Watch the exclusive premiere of “Medicine” below: READ FULL STORY
