It is available now at all digital retailers.

The release of ‘We Will Rock You’ follows The Struts’ recent collaboration with Paris Jackson on ‘Low Key In Love’ which was released last month along with a video directed by Bryson Roatch. Already getting significant UK radio play it was Radio 2’s, New To 2 track all last week being played across all the daytime shows. And in further UK news, The Struts are gearing up to head back out on the road very soon, having just been announced to play the Main Stage at Reading & Leads Festival this August.
The Struts’ most recent album Strange Days includes a stellar line up of guest musicians. Released last October, the band’s third full-length offers up tracks like ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’, a poignant powerhouse featuring the blazing guitar work of Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes.
Meanwhile, ‘Strange Days’ serves up the unforgettable vocals of pop legend Robbie Williams. An explosive collaboration with Def Leppard’s Phil Collen and Joe Elliott, ‘I Hate How Much I Want You’ finds Spiller trading throat-shredding vocals with Elliott to magnificent effect. And on ‘Wild Child’, Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello joins Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies for a fierce and filthy anthem that marks their heaviest track yet.
ABOUT THE STRUTS
Formed in Derby, England, in 2012, The Struts have found themselves massively embraced by some of the greatest icons in rock-and-roll history. Along with opening for Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Guns N’ Roses, the UK-bred four-piece band was handpicked by Mötley Crüe to serve as the supporting act for their last-ever performances.
Releasing their debut album Everybody Wants in 2016 and sophomore album YOUNG & DANGEROUS in 2018, they’ve toured incessantly since their formation, including worldwide headline shows and major festivals like Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, and Isle of Wight. When COVID-19 brought touring to a halt, The Struts created their third album Strange Days over the course of a charmed and frenzied burst of creativity last spring. After getting tested for COVID-19, the band moved into the L.A. home of producer Jon Levine and, within just ten days, laid down nine original tracks alongside their masterful cover of a KISS B-side.
