Scotland’s We Were Promised Jetpacks already put out one single from their upcoming third album, Unravelling (due out 10/14 via FatCat, pre-order), and we’ve now got the premiere of an Audiotree session for another track off that LP, “Night Terror.” It’s big, Coldplay-esque atmospheric rock, and you can hear it for yourself by watching the video below.

As discussed, the band are also touring North America after the album’s release, and since we last spoke their Scottish pals The Twilight Sad were added to most dates on that tour including the NYC show happening November 22 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

As previously mentioned, The Twilight Sad will be in NYC right before then too, performing their 2007 debut album, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, in full at Rough Trade NYC on October 16. Tickets for that show are still available.

While we’re talking about Scottish indie rock bands, Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison released a solo album under the name Owl John earlier this month. You can stream it in full below, via Q Magazine, and head to Q to read what Scott had to say about each individual track. Owl John’s only date at the moment is opening for Neutral Milk Hotel in the UK.
