The ideal remedy to the summertime blues, ‘Antidote’ is an adrenaline inducing shot of heart-pounding riffs, cascading drumrolls and frenetic fret-work that stakes its place as one of the the most confident moments in the band’s catalogue to date.
A love song of sorts, ‘Antidote’ is an impassioned tribute to someone close to the band who has provided that essential lifeline in their hour of need. Recorded in the prestigious Motor Museum Studios in Liverpool, a studio that has welcomed an esteemed array of artists from The 1975 to Oasis, The LA’s & many more; Life At The Arcade now etch their name into its history with this engrossing new cut.
Ablaze with the guitar histrionics and a bombastic production that nods to the 80s, ‘Antidote’ was produced and mixed by James Mellor, and further mastered by Mike Cave (who also worked on the band’s tempestuous previous single: ‘Tabloids’ earlier this year).
Speaking about the new single, frontman Paddy Clegg says:
“This song shows the heavier sounding side of Life At The Arcade. I wrote this track about having someone being my drug / reason to keep me on my feet when times were pretty s**t”.
Renowned among fans as a regular opener of Life At The Arcade’s emphatic live sets, the band will be touring ‘Antidote’ with a string of UK shows this Summer. Full dates and details as follows:
LIFE AT THE ARCADE – SUMMER TOUR – UK 2019
20 July – Sheffield, Tramlines

Since forming in 2015, Life At The Arcade’s upbeat indie pop rock has seen them rapidly grab the attention of gig and festival goers, plus easily earn fans at BBC Introducing (Dave Monks) and BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson), plus even scoop an honourable Track of The Week at Radio X with irresistible former single “Wonderland”. On debut EP: ‘From The Basement’, the band offered up a collection of tracks that affirmed their formidable knack for a soaring chorus and intelligent lyric, with the release since cementing itself as essential listening post amongst their growing army of fans. Refusing to sit still for long, in 2019, the four piece have toured internationally, taken to the stages of some of the UK’s best loved festivals, and released new singles including ‘Tabloids’ and brand new cut: ’Antidote’.
