Brooding Irish post-punk trio, Slow Riot have delivered their new single 'Trophy Wife,' and make emotional carnage sound so good. While frontman, Niall Clancy serves dark romanticized art-rock vocals on the surging new alternative track, urgent and dynamically frazzled instrumentation offers an authentic step into a toxic atmosphere where passive aggression rises like the morning sun.

"Trophy wife came together very quickly and organically as a track," the band said. "The vocals are hard hitting, dealing with infidelity. It's about being in a relationship with someone for all the wrong reasons. He was drawn in by her looks and she stamped on his heart. We wanted to evoke these emotions in the listener be it good or bad." The single, recorded with Kevin Vanbergen (The Pixies, The Maccabees, Dinosaur Pile-Up, The La's and Biffy Clyro) at Brighton's Park Studios, follows hot on the heels of the band's debut EP Cathedral.

Slow Riot will support Girls Names on February 27 at Limerick Dolans and have recently confirmed a headlining show at The Waiting Room on April 25. Pre-order 'Trophy Wife' on 7" vinyl here. It's officially out on April 15 via Straight Lines Are Fine.
