Welsh wonders TRAMPOLENE will release their fourth album Rules Of Love & War on 17th March 2023. Rules of Love & War features 12 new TRAMPOLENE original songs and was produced by Mike Moore (Baxter Dury/Liam Gallagher), Richard Jackson (Super Furry Animals) & Jason Stafford (Albion Rooms).
Says singer and lead Tramp Jack Jones: “I can’t believe we’ve managed to stay together long enough to make 4 albums. That’s the miracle. Having been friends since school. That’s what means the most to me now. We wanted the album to have a psychedelic, cinematic feel to it with grandiose layers, brass, strings and distorted guitars. I’m delighted with how it’s turned out. We got the title from ‘Down & Out In Paris & London’ (George Orwell). It’s felt like we’ve been living in an Orwellian world recently.”
The first single to be taken from TRAMPOLENE’s new album, inspired by a CNN report on climate change, is Thinking Again, which is available now from all reputable digital music providers.
TRAMPOLENE have released three albums – ‘Swansea To Hornsey’ (2017); ’Pick A Pocket or Two’ (2018); and ’Love No Less Than A Queen’ (2021) which featured in the Top 5 Independent album chart, Official Independent Albums Breakers Chart No. 1 and Official Album Sales Chart No. 20.
TRAMPOLENE personnel: Jack Jones – vocals/guitar, Wayne Thomas – bass/vocals and Mr Williams – drums/Keyboards/Violin/vocals.
