In episode #135 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar meets Johnny Lloyd and Dan White from TRIBES to talk about 'Rabbit Head' – their first album in ten years.
With their boldest record yet, Rabbit Head captures how TRIBES got here and where they're heading next. They might have taken the long way around, but the album feels like the one TRIBES were always destined to make. They are a band revitalised.
The Camden quartet, comprised of singer/guitarist Johnny Lloyd, guitarist Dan White, bassist Jim Cratchley and drummer Miguel Demelo, embarked on an indefinite hiatus following the release and extensive touring of sophomore album Wish To Scream in 2013. Following a choice encounter between the four at a Dinosaur Pile-Up – Cratchly's band since TRIBES – show in 2020, they were reminded of what they had lost and are now back, bigger and better than ever!
In this interview, Johnny and Dan talk about their hiatus, reforming the band, writing and recording Rabbit Head and lots more. Listen to episode #135 of The XS Noize Podcast with Johnny Lloyd and Dan White – BELOW:
