Scream Above The Sounds
12" vinyl album

Stereophonics are a Welsh rock band that formed in 1992 in the village of Cwmaman in the Cynon Valley. The band consists of Kelly Jones (lead vocals and guitar), Richard Jones (bass guitar, piano and backing vocals), Adam Zindani (guitar and backing vocals), Jamie Morrison (drums) and touring member Tony Kirkham (keyboards). The group previously included Stuart Cable (1992–2003) and then Javier Weyler (2004–2012) on drums. Stereophonics have released ten studio albums, including six UK number one albums, their latest album being Scream Above the Sounds (2017). A successful compilation album, Decade in the Sun, was released in November 2008 and charted at number two in the United Kingdom.

Described as "classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals" the band have been summarised as possessing a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and "British traditional rock". Stereophonics' debut album, Word Gets Around, was released in August 1997 and charted at number six in the UK, aided by the singles "Local Boy in the Photograph", "More Life in a Tramps Vest" and "A Thousand Trees". The band reached mainstream success with the release of Performance and Cocktails (and its promotional singles "The Bartender and the Thief", "Just Looking" and "Pick a Part That's New") in 1999 and have achieved a total of ten top-ten singles as well as one number one: "Dakota" (2005). Having sold around 10 million copies worldwide, Stereophonics are one of the most successful Welsh rock acts. Upon their release of Pull the Pin, they became the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums (after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2).

The band have also been praised for their live performances, which have landed them headlining slots at many of the UK and Ireland's most high-profile music festivals, including Reading and Leeds in 2000, Glastonbury in 2002, V festival in 2002, the Isle of Wight in 2004 and 2009, and Oxegen in 2010. The band is part of the Cardiff music scene.

In 2015, Stereophonics released their ninth studio album, Keep the Village Alive, and supported it with the Keep the Summer Alive Tour throughout late-spring and summer 2016. During the tour, Kelly Jones announced he would like to release the band's tenth studio album "before next summer" to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Word Gets Around, rather than release a compilation album. In February 2017, the band signed with Parlophone Records to release Scream Above The Sounds, having been on their own Stylus Records label for Graffiti on the Train and Keep the Village Alive. On 27 July, Stereophonics revealed the name, release date and album artwork for Scream Above the Sounds, as well as releasing the lead single "All in One Night". The next single was "Caught by the Wind", which was released on 4 September 2017 along with a music video. On 20th October the band released the song "Before Anyone Knew Our Name" through their YouTube channel, and on 24 October they performed "Taken a Tumble" on Later... with Jools Holland.

This album was released on 27 October 2017 on CD, vinyl and digital download formats, with the downloaded edition including a digital booklet. A deluxe edition was released at the same time with five bonus tracks. The sticker on the deluxe CD mistakenly lists the tracks "What's All the Fuss About?" and "Would You Believe?" as singles, despite the fact that they had not been released previously.
