Ladytron are releasing a new album, Time’s Arrow, on January 20 via Cooking Vinyl. Now they have shared its second single, “Misery Remember Me,” and announced some new U.S. tour dates. They have announced three West Coast shows for next May. Check out the song below, followed by all the band’s upcoming tour dates.
A press release says “Misery Remember Me” was “created as an ode to the human spirit against all odds.”
Ladytron’s singer Helen Marnie had this to say about the song: “We can try and try, but we’ll never escape who or what we are. And with that realization, we must embrace the now, but always allow ourselves to dream. ‘Misery Remember Me’ encapsulates this ethos.”
Previously Ladytron shared Time’s Arrow’s first single, “City of Angels.” “City of Angels” is the album’s opening track and was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared a cinematic video for “City of Angels.”
Time’s Arrow is the follow-up to 2019’s Ladytron. Since then the band have celebrated the 20th anniversary of their second album, 2002’s Light & Magic, and in 2021 the album’s “Seventeen” went viral again thanks to TikTok. In August we premiered a previously unreleased video for “Light & Magic.”
The Liverpool-formed band features Helen Marnie, Daniel Hunt, Mira Aroyo, and Reuben Wu.
