Released via Big Machine/John Varvatos Records, "Too Good at Raising Hell" is packed with a driving chorus and Stones-esque guitars as the band offers up cheeky-yet-surprisingly-introspective lyrics, reflecting the ennui of living a louche lifestyle. It’s the perfect introduction to a newly perfected sound brimming with riotous, arena-ready tracks.

“’Too Good at Raising Hell,’ is a song that was written about the disenchantment I felt after having a little too much fun. However, it still captures the essence of living an excessive life and all of the glorious moments that come along with it. It's the perfect song to get the party started, and it’s a brilliant introduction of what's to come. The track is still a lot of what The Struts are known for, but it’s a new sound everyone’s been waiting to hear from us.” - Luke Spiller

The quintessentially British rock stars first erupted onto the music scene with their behemoth anthem, "Could’ve Been Me", which became a US smash hit, taking the No. 5 spot on Alternative Radio and introducing the world to their triumphant and timeless rock sound while generating a buzz so visceral the certified-Platinum record continues to resonate with fans around the world.

Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut, 2016's Everybody Wants, the band set out on the road, bringing their energetic tracks alive on stage with larger-than-life performances and cementing their reputation as a must-see live act. Lead vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies have continued to prove themselves worthy of that distinction, opening for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Guns N’ Roses, and Foo Fighters— the latter of which dubbed them "the best opening band we've ever had." The Struts have sold out shows across the globe, and released two more hugely acclaimed albums with 2018’s Young & Dangerous and 2020’s Strange Days. Their on-stage prowess and perpetual musicality have allowed them to reach the No. 1 Spot on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, garner more than 850M on-demand streams, and put them in the studio collaborating with Kesha, Tom Morello, Robbie Williams, Def Leppard and more.

Now, The Struts have taken the raw, raucous nature of their live shows and transmuted them into a new musical era, fusing their arena-size energy into their most honest, consistent, and exciting songs to date.
