Dublin band The Minutes release their new album, Live Well, Change Often, this May.

The follow-up to acclaimed debut album Marcata, the new record, released on Model Citizen Records on Friday May 9, is described as "a huge leap forward - in terms of both sound and themes".

According to the band, it deals with "the reality of being in a rock 'n' roll band in the 21st Century, the hopes and the dreams, tempered with the shadows and illusions".

The album will be preceded by single Cherry Bomb on Friday April 25.

Live Well, Change Often was recorded in Vancouver with producer GGGarth Richardson, whose credits include Biffy Clyro, Rage Against the Machine and Kerbdog. Additional production took place in Dublin.
