Oldham electro-rock trio The Whip have returned with the follow up to their 2008 debut album X Marks Destination, which gave us Trash and Divebomb.

It's been almost three-and-a-half years but the new record, Wired Together, dropped on Southern Fried Records on Monday 19 September.

It follows a hefty stint of touring and writing and when it came to recording it, the band worked with acclaimed producer Jagz Kooner, who has performed desk duties for the likes of Infadels and Kasabian.

Kooner also aided Primal Scream on their albums XTRMNTR in 2000 and Evil Heat in 2002.
