‘Deadcrush’ is taken from the band’s new album ‘RELAXER’ which has received huge acclaim. ‘Deadcrush’ is the latest track to be lifted from the trio’s third album which was released in June this year, the LP flew straight into the top 10 of the UK album chart and, in the following weeks, the band performed a sold out O2 Arena show and headlined The Other Stage at Glastonbury Festival.

Between them, the two records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times. The band have headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London’s O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on their last tour. Earlier this month they announced a return to the O2 Arena for a special show on 16 June as part of the venue’s 10th birthday celebrations; limited tickets for the show are still available.
