Four years after their debut full-length, Glasgow’s American-named noise rockers United Fruit released their freshest effort in the three-track EP, 2015’s Nightmare Recovery. The EP is now making its way onto their next release, Eternal Return, due May 13. The quartet’s forthcoming sophomore LP is a stadium-ready, 11-track exclamation mark with reverberating vocals and tireless rhythms. A rich blend of alt-rock with pop structures, the record never slows more than during the aptly-named “Sorrow,” as close as Eternal Return gets to a ballad.
Of the record, guitarist/vocalist Iskandar Stewart tells SPIN,
The songs captivate what it’s like to fall in love, to feel pain from falling in love, letting go of love, and the fear of being alive. We wanted the kind of honesty in the music that lays it on the line, heart on sleeve even if we are crushed in the process. As a result Eternal Return is the creation which encapsulates all that we’ve learned since our first album.
On the album’s early stand-out, “Golden Days,” Stewart howls, “I wish I had golden days. That summer feeling.” These are sure to follow for United Fruit. Listen to Eternal Return, ahead of its May 13 release, and find the artwork below.
