Art Brut have today released their first new material in 7 years. Wham! Bam! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! is the band's first material for new label Alcopop! Records and you can stream it below.

The band are now joined by two new members, Charlie Layton, who is the drummer for the Wedding Present and Toby Macfarlaine who plays bass for Graham Coxon's band.

Alcopop! label boss Jack Clothier had this to say: “A few years into running Alcopop! I created a little wishlist in my mind of the absolute top five dream bands who I'd love to sign most of all. Legitimately we expected to sign none of them, but, lo and behold, Art Brut are the fourth on the list to sign with us, and we couldn't be more excited. This new material is undeniably their best yet, and it's exactly what the world needs right now if you ask me.”

Singer Eddie Argos said: “Watch the fuck out! We're back and very rejuvenated. I wanted to call the last album Wham! Bang! Pow! Lets Rock Out! but in the end it didn't really sound like a Wham! Bang! Pow! Record!, more like Brilliant! Tragic! but that means this idea has been rattling around my head for 7 years. 7 Years! Art Brut make Wham! Bang! Pow! music. This song is about making friends. Art Brut are coming to your party whether you want us to or not. We didn’t want to go home yet, there were still quite a few people we hadn't met. See you soon.”
