Oakman Announce Forthcoming Album ‘Violent Oblivion’ Via New Single ‘Proper Attitude’

Oakman have revealed details of their brand-new album ‘Violent Oblivion’, and released new single ‘Proper Attitude’ to mark the news.

The French trio’s new project arrives May 03 via Rude Records and is said to see the band return to their signature pop-rock sound.

Speaking of the new LP and what it entails, the band have shared:

“‘Violent Oblivion’ is that violent break with the outside world, our own emotions, and the encounter with our traumas. 

“Through the songs, it represents the different mental states Violent Oblivion can put us in. 

“The powerful catchy melodies and lively instrumentals conceal deep and strong feelings, mental problems, excitement, fear and despair. 

“Getting out of this Violent Oblivion is a big challenge, so we eventually hang on to find some hope and love to cope”.

The new album will feature previous Oakman singles ‘Missed Connections’ and ‘Air Hunger’.

Have a listen to the project’s latest cut, ‘Proper Attitude’, via the video below.

Describing the new single specifically, and how it derives its title, the band have further added:

“This song describes the feeling of trying to maintain a proper attitude when everything’s going wrong. 

“You’re pretending to be okay when everything’s falling apart inside you and you start to lose it.

“You’re mad at yourself because you think it’s your fault and people are blaming you. Sometimes it’s too hard to pretend, so you just want to throw it all away.”
