NOVEMBER 15, 2022



‘The lunatics have taken over the asylum, what are we going to do? KEEP ON SMILING. Cos what else are we going to do?’

Today Two Door Cinema Club are back - announcing their forthcoming fifth studio album, Keep On Smiling, due via LOWER THIRD [PIAS] September 2. The album is available to pre-order/save now. Alongside the album announcement, Two Door Cinema Club have released the first single taken from the new album, ‘Wonderful Life.’

Wonderful Life’ is a nod back to the pure rush of Two Door Cinema Club’s early output, an unwavering indie pop signal and the sound of a band that are more ambitious than they have ever been before in their 15 year, multi-platinum selling, festival headlining career.

Afforded the time and space to fully immerse themselves in the writing and recording process, the band adopted a freer, more collaborative approach to the creative process with Keep On Smiling. The album was written and produced by the band both during and coming out of lockdown, with additional production from Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party, The Killers, Taylor Swift) and  Dan Grech Marguerat (Halsey, Lana Del Rey, George Ezra). The LP’s artwork was created by acclaimed British artist, Alan Fears, known for his vibrant, 80s-inspired style and pop culture references, his signature colorful, theatrical, often humorous and elementally positive paintings lend themselves perfectly to visually encapsulate the themes of Keep On Smiling



Not of this world, hair-raising opener ‘Messenger AD’ prepares you for the stratospheric and kaleidoscopic journey TDCC take listeners on with Keep On Smiling. With irresistible electro funk and nu disco tinged ear worms ‘Everybody’s Cool’‘Feeling Strange’ and ‘Won’t Do Nothing,’ to space age synth pop bops ‘Lucky,’ the sky really is the limit for the boys from Bangor, who are lamenting a divided and fractured society; declaring that happiness is within our control through tremendous optimistic and upbeat indie dance floor anthems. The results are spectacular, and recapture what originally propelled the band into the mainstream consciousness, and a legacy as one of the UK’s most enduring and beloved bands.

To usher in this new era, another frantic summer of live awaits one Two Door Cinema Club as they command huge mainstage billings across the likes of Down The Rabbit Hole, Mad Cool, Nos Alive and Benicassim, before headlining London’s Community Festival 16th July

Today, the band have also announced EU and North American tours later this year. The tour will make a Los Angeles stop at the Hollywood Palladium on Nov. 15, 2022. For a full list of live dates and on-sale details, please see below.
