Beans on Toast release their eleventh studio album ‘The Inevitable Train Wreck’ on the 1st December 2019 and it is an upbeat rock and roll inspired commentary on the bleak future of humanity and our planet.
‘The Inevitable Train Wreck’ opens with ‘Wold Gone Crazy’ which has a classic upbeat rock and roll feel.
However with lyrics such as ‘the ship is sinking’ and ‘fingers in our ears whilst society collapses’ this track sets out a bleaker message than you would expect on a rock and roll track and this contrasting theme of classic rock and roll music with doom laden lyrics persists throughout the album.
Beans on Toast are clearly not afraid of tackling current global issues through their music whether it be climate change on ‘Extinction No.6’ the wealth divide on ‘Rich vs Poor’ or the loss of manual labour jobs to automated machines on ‘Saying Thank You to Robots’.
Whilst the message of the album is one of overwhelming negativity there are some bright spots of hope such as on ‘Truth Be Told’ which is a message about the trust we put in family and building a life of peace.
Another Bright spot can be heard on ‘On and On’ which shows a message of hope in the next generation with lyrics such as ‘there’s children marching in the streets they give me hope’ and ‘I believe the worlds worth saving’.
This shows that whilst the album is full of doom and gloom about that current state of affairs there is still hope for the future.
Beans on Toast recorded, mixed and mastered this album with out the use of a single computer and this seems fitting for a record that delivers such a stark commentary on modern day life.
This is an album that is not afraid to tackle todays big issues and does so with a fantastic rock and roll style sound to it. This is a great album and is one you should definitely pick up when it is released on December 1st.

Twisted Wheel are set to release their third studio album ‘Satisfying the Ritual’ on the 20th March 2020 and the band continue their build up to the date with the release of their new single ‘Black and Blue’.
Twisted Wheel are known for their indi/punk infused sound and Black and Blue is exactly that, with its thrashing guitars and driving drums Black and blue has an anthemic feel and will be a single that will sound brilliant when played live. ‘Black and Blue’ is a perfect example for new fans of what this band is all about and it is sure to get existing fans excited for Twisted Wheels forthcoming album.
With the band motoring towards the release of their new album and having already released singles ‘Nomad Hat’, ‘DNA’ and ‘Rebel’ earlier this year, ‘Black and Blue’ shows again that Twisted Wheel are in fine form, creating some fantastic new music and that fans should be excited for March 20th 2020 when the bands new album ‘Satisfying the Ritual’ is released.
