In a follow up for the release of the record, the Italian foursome released single LA FINE at midnight today (16 December), as well as the full tracklist, where the Tom Morello track sits at a relatively high number two spot.
“People have got our aesthetic – now we’ve got to show the inside,” says frontman Damiano David said about the upcoming record.
“It’s a new side for our new audience, but we’ve always been playing ballads.” Added bassist Victoria De Angelis. “That’s always been a big part of our music, so with this one we tried to experiment a bit more with the sound. We listened to a lot of Radiohead where they work a lot with pedals.”
Måneskin hit the headlines last month after they opened up about their approach to sex appeal in rock music.
Speaking to Guitar World they explained their thought process:
“We don’t feel like we should restrict ourselves in any way. There are underground bands that are like, ‘I’m not dressing up’ and all of that thing, and that’s cool. But we don’t care about that. We love to dress up and have fun,” says De Angelis.
She continued, “We know we can deliver the music, so we’re not all about image. But for us to look the way that we do, it’s just who we are. It’s rock ‘n’ roll.”
RUSH! will be released 20 January 2023.
