Named after the murderous heroine featured in Oliver Stone’s outrageous feature Natural Born Killers, Mallory Knox are back with their brand new album Asymmetry and a UK tour to boot which includes their stop off here in Peterborough.
Having hit the big time with their first album Signals which featured the massive singles Lighthouse and Beggars, the band are ready to break new boundaries this time round with a newly focused set of aspirations.
ESP’s Alex Jones chatted to Sam Douglas from the band to talk about the new album, their show in Peterborough and the resurgence of rock music.
Sam said he’s excited about the forthcoming release of Asymmetry – “Yeah it’s been a while coming for us to get these songs out, you know how it is, being in a band we’ve had these songs for almost a year before we even stepped inside the studio so we’re itching for people to hear this stuff. We’ve just put Shout at the Moon out there and Ghost in the Mirror a few months back and the reactions been great so we’re excited to get the rest of the album out there.”
Famed for anthemic choruses, there’s no shortage of them this time round especially in South at the Moon.
“Shout at the Moon was actually one of the first tracks we had written for the album,” explained Sam “and when we came round to demoing it we had some time to really think about how we wanted it to sound. The chorus to that track was completely re-written and when we went into the studio we had a lot of time to think about different guitar tones and things like that.
“Unlike with Signals which was recorded in three weeks, this time round we had four months to think about things so a lot more time was dedicated to specific parts and really getting as much out of every song that we could.”
“We’ve played The Met Lounge a few times before but we haven’t played it in a couple of years actually. When we were starting out we would travel between Cambridge, Peterborough and Bury St Edmunds, they would be the three cities we’d play every other month.
“We’ve been away elsewhere for a couple of years so its going to be good to come back. I remember when we first played The Met it was in front of 20 people, then we came back and played for 40 people then for 100 and the last time we sold it out!
“But yeah the Peterborough date is like our homecoming show, it’s the show our families are going to come to and hopefully a few people from Cambridge will make the trip. Its gonna be a good one!”
