New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Nashville-via-Boston DIY scene duo Twen will release their incredible debut album later this month, and today they share a massive, instantly memorable new single, "Make Hard." The band explains to DIY: "This song was rewritten and arranged very late in the recording process. Another one of our earliest tunes, the second verse was a response to the growing pains we were going through at the time, transitioning from part time rockers to full time road warriors. The lyrics have come to symbolize the dynamics and relationships within a band as it grows, through the transformation of defined roles and how they change over time." Listen to the track BELOW:

Twen came up in the Boston DIY punk scene, kicking off two straight years of touring in 2017 with nothing but a live EP from the band's first-ever performance. Now based in Nashville, Twen recently announced their explosive debut album Awestruck. Awestruck is a time capsule two years in the making and recorded in different locations along the way. Though unabashedly indie rock, Twen's songs genre-bend from shoe-gaze-sized walls of sound to Beatle-esque call-and-response harmonies, while frontperson Jane Fitzsimmons' voice weaves through guitarist Ian Jones' guitar lines with Cocteau Twin's inspired flair, giving breath of ethereal mysticism across the album. Awestruck will be out on September 20th via Frenchkiss.

Twen recently wrapped a U.S. run with White Reaper, and are touring Europe with Tacocat right now before returning stateside for more shows, including a hometown release show in Nashville on September 27th.
