Plaza’s 2018 has already got off to an electrifying start: announcing a stint at May’s Meet the North Festival in Newcastle and scoring a record deal with Coda within the matter of two months, it seems there is no time to take a breather for the four-piece.

Speak It is an abrasive, shimmering slice of point-blank gold that encompasses all of what makes the Hartlepool lads so distinguishable, laden with thrashing guitars and fantastically in-your-face lyrics. Drummer Matty Swinbourne says of the track: “Speak It is about not being concerned with what other people think about what you say or how you act. Always consider the potential consequences of your actions and words because in the end, this is what writes your story, but just be nice and don’t let the irrelevant things in your life get you down – concentrate on you.”
