Devon rockers MORIATY are back with a brand new single and video.

'Shake' is the first single to be taken from the duo's new album The Die Is Cast, which is due out in October.

"It's a riff that popped into my head whilst driving to a rehearsal," says singer and guitarist Jordan West. "As soon as we set up I played it straight away, and moments later we had a song. It's one of those songs that - quite fittingly - just fell from the sky."

Hotly-tipped at the time of their debut album The Devil's Child back in 2013, Moriaty picked up a huge following for their 21st century punk-blues, with several high profile festival slots and dates with the likes of Muse and Seasick Steve. Along the way they've picked up numerous celebrity fans, including Thom Yorke and members of IDLES, who've even starred in their videos.

Much delayed by such life-changing events as births, deaths and Covid-19, The Die Is Cast is set for release through Easy Action Records on 23 October.

'Shake' is available now on Spotify, Apple and all the usual platforms.
