Style over substance, they said.

Well 'they' were bloody well wrong. Returning with their second album, fashion addicted Southend group These New Puritans had a little bit of a point to prove.

The confused art rock tendencies of their debut demonstrated a band unafraid to think outside the box, but also one with severe problems unifying their vastly different influences and ideals. On 'Hidden' These New Puritans seem to have perfected this.

A quantum leap forward from their debut, the album has stunned critics who sneered at their fashion sense first time round. To clear that up - if Hedi Slimane offers you free clothes, then take them.

New single 'Attack Music' is a fantastic response from the band, with These New Puritans on furious form. Available from April 19th, the single comes back with a memorable new video. Watch it now...
