Call it a comeback! Ten years after the release of their debut album, French punk rock three-piece The Traders have returned with a new lineup and a new record. We’re stoked to bring you this exclusive premiere of the album’s lead single “Grandiose”. Check out the new song below, and pre-save it on your favorite streaming platform here.

Here’s some backstory on the song, courtesy of the band:

“This song is the first we wrote with the actual line up in a rehearsal room, in maybe one or two hours. Maybe that’s why there’s so much energy to it. We never changed it, re-wrote it, re-structured it or anything. It might sounds silly or cliché, but that’s what we like about this song.

The lyrics are mostly about self-esteem, confidence, and also selfishness and stubbornness. Somehow, the line seems more and more blurry nowadays, as some people let their ego ruin any kind of human relationship instead of introspection. On that note, stay positive!”

Be on the lookout for The Traders’ sophomore album, due out this September. It’s being co-released by a bunch of awesome labels, including White Russian Records, Nasty Cut Records, La Agonía de Vivir & more.
