Togetheris an anthem to solidarity and mutual support, and God knows we need a little of that in our stay home stay subservient screen culture. It is the fourth song (following the release of Thinking Again, Sort Me Out and Money) to be taken from Rules Of Love & War .

Says singer and boss Tramp Jack Jones:“Together is about being stuck in your room, not knowing what to do with your life, when a friend knocks on your door, rescues you and takes you on an adventure…it’s also a song dedicated to ours fans…who are the reason we’ve kept going and the reason we are still together ”
Rules of Love & War will be available on CD, cassette, digital download and 12” black or red vinyl, as well as exclusive formats and signed items. Preorder the album here: https://lnk.fu.ga/trampolene_rulesoflovewar
