The Lemon Twigs - New Track 'Small Victories'
The Lemon Twigs : New Track 'Small Victories'
17th July 2018

Following last week’s announcement of The Lemon Twigs’ musical album Go To School (out 24th August worldwide, with LP/CD to follow in North America on 14th September), the band releases new single Small Victories today.  This is the second song released from the 15-track opus that was written, recorded, produced and mixed by brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario in their home in Long Island.

Ruminating on this new song, the D’Addarios say, “When life’s obstacles start to wear you down, it’s the little things that keep you going. Bowling the perfect game, catching a glass before it falls to the ground, making the train in the nick of time. While there are no guarantees, we can always count on Small Victories.”

You can listen to 'Small Victories' on all digital platforms here.

Go To School tells the coming-of-age story of Shane, a pure of heart chimpanzee raised as a human boy as he comes to terms with the obstacles of life. Todd Rundgren and D’Addario’s mother Susan Hall play Shane’s parents. The album also features contributions from Jody Stephens (Big Star) and their father Ronnie D’Addario. Recently released album closer ‘If You Give Enough’ reveals the moral of the fable: give a lot of love without expecting it in return and you won’t be corrupted by the hate around you.

'Go To School' by The Lemon Twigs is available to pre-order here.

Later this year, The Lemon Twigs will join Arctic Monkeys on their UK and European tour as well as two nights at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.
