The Manchester band appeared on NME’s 2021’s ‘Essential Emerging Artists’ list where they were described as “bringing the horror-show back to rock without any gimmickry because real life is scary enough after all” and “looking cool as fuck, they sound like a reckoning and they really mean it.”

The new track was produced by Pigs x7’s Sam Grant at Blank Studios in Newcastle.

Check out the new track here:

Bassist Alex Thompson said of the track, “it just goes heavy”, adding: “it was literally the last song we wrote before we went into the studio but came together really quickly.

“I think it still has an essence of some of our older material, so it’s a good way to bridge the gap.”

According to a press release, the song’s video has been inspired by the likes of “Blur’s ‘Song 2’, The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’, and early noughties music channels like Kerrang and Scuzz.”
