WILDHEARTS GET IN THE (SPLITTER) VAN!

THE WILDHEARTS celebrate the release of their brand new album with a video released today.

The ball-breaking hardcore-channelling ‘Splitter’ is taken from 21st Century Love Songs, which is out today through Graphite Records. The album follows on from 2019’s Renaissance Men, the band’s highest-charting album since 1984’s P.H.U.Q which went all the way up to 11.

“’Splitter’ was the first song that I wrote for the new album,” explains Ginger. “The one where I thought, ‘Oh fuck, I can hear us playing that, it’s gonna be filthy, especially live’. I sent the riff to Ritch straight away, as I always do when I get an idea I’m excited about, and he was into it right off the bat. That’s the thing with new Wildhearts songs, until there’s a big, dirty riff in the bag you can’t move on and write the rest of the album. It all starts with a righteous riff and some shouting. And I hope it always begins that way. If you ain’t got the riffs then you ain’t got shit.”
