2016 saw Glasgow-based duo Prides return with their latest single ‘Are You Ready’ – the debut cut to be revealed in the build up to the much-anticipated release of their second full length album – scheduled for release in summer 2017.

Another hugely accomplished release, ‘Are You Ready’ sees Prides continuing their natural move towards a well-rounded, guitar/drum led sound, complimented by elegant electronic touches. Prides sound like they’re having fun again, and like ‘Rome’ before it, the new single encompasses everything that people love about the band, adding a healthy dose of irresistible exuberance and enthusiasm.

Prides have consistently proved themselves to be band with big songs, and equally big crowds. 2 years ago the band played the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony to 7.5 million people on BBC1, shortly followed by an invite to support Blink-182 at Brixton Academy, and subsequently selling out two UK tours of their own. 2015 then saw Prides conquer the festival circuit – performing at Glastonbury, T in the Park, Latitude and Reading & Leeds Festivals, but this year, Prides are going back to their roots, falling back in love with the process of writing music, and sharing that with their fans.

“Scorching live shows and engrossing singles. Crisp, stylish synth-pop with huge choruses” - Clash
