Leeds-Based Music Mavericks I Like Trains Release 'The Truth (Vessels Remix)'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Leeds-based trailblazers I LIKE TRAINS present a searing take on post-truth politics gets a hefty bass-heavy rework by Vessels. The electronic artist re-envisions a more upbeat version of 'The Truth', the lead track from the band's hard-hitting 'KOMPROMAT', their fourth studio album, released in 2020 via Schubert Music's recently founded Atlantic Curve label.

The band has also announced a string of tour dates, slated for autumn 2021. Tickets may be obtained at

Formed in 2004, I LIKE TRAINS is David Martin (vocals/guitar), Alistair Bowis (bass), Guy Bannister (guitar/synths), Simon Fogal (drums) and Ian Jarrold (guitar).
"I don't usually have a remix in mind when it come to our own music, but 'The Truth' was always designed to make people move, and it seemed logical to gear it up properly for the dance floor," says I LIKE TRAINS vocalist David Martin.

They also recently shared a series of deepfake remixes of the

Their latest musical output digs beneath populism's rise, from the divide and conquer tactics that caused Brexit in the UK, to Trump's ascent and the subsequent reign of lies and misinformation, to discover the grubby hands that have engineered it all.

'The Truth (Vessels Remix)' is out now, available everywhere online, including
Bandcamp, Apple Music and Spotify. 'KOMPROMAT' is also available digitally, on black vinyl LP, limited edition silver vinyl LP and CD. All formats can be ordered via Bandcamp.
