Arcane Roots release new single Off The Floor, taken from their upcoming album Melancholia Hymns out 15th September.

Andrew Groves, frontman and guitarst, has spoken about the meaning behind the epic new song “Off The Floor was the very first time we had ever openly written about politics. Current world events had become an almost unavoidable weight over us during the writing of Melancholia Hymns, and where it would usually be something we would shy away from, it felt like now more than ever that we had a duty to speak up. Never before had it felt like something could actually change and that we had a responsibility to encourage people to vote and make a difference. Musically, we wanted to write something that felt at home on a festival stage but was structured more electronically, with a constant build towards as big of a riff/drop as we could dream up. “

The single has been released with an intriguing new video.
