Our debut single with official music video from the album 'Plight Of The Millennial' is out everywhere now!
George Garnett Vocalist - "For the music video we wanted to capture a warts-and-all kind of insight into someone's mental health. The monotonous bilge of living with poor mental health." Robbie Johnson Drummer - "The Music Video was wicked fun, we announced the show for the live shots about a month before and the turn out and support was sick! Our first ever gig was at The New Adelphi club so it felt right going back to where it all started, we're pretty pleased with how it came out."
'Plight of the Millennial' is a call-to-arms for a disenchanted, disillusioned, and frustrated generation. It delivers bursts of angst and cynical social commentary in a climate where people are more than happy to reduce serious issues to the realm of memes, or witty banter, for the sake of a cheap laugh. As modern hardcore seems to be becoming more insular, 'Plight Of The Millennial' subverts the trend. Listening to this record is like seeing the world through the eyes of a rebellious youth, and concluding: “Shit’s just worse than ever”.
However 'Coping' is the exception to this rule. Instead of looking at the outside world, with critique, this is a self-depreciative and brutally honest examination of the destructive coping mechanisms of today’s youth, which are extending into adulthood at unprecedented rates. With the dramatic rise in individuals turning to drugs, alcohol, and mental isolation, there’s a direct and poignant correlation with the very real struggle of the mental health services, trying to “cope” with this surge in cases.
