Static Dress Return With Sensational New Single ‘Crying’

Static Dress have marked the start of a new era with their latest single and video, ‘Crying’.

The post-hardcore quartet have been flying high since the release of their sensational debut album ‘Rouge Carpet Disaster’ in 2022.

Since then, the UK outfit have signed to the prestigious Roadrunner Records, dropped a redux version of their debut LP (and even their own video game), and supported Bring Me The Horizon on their arena tour.

And now they’ve kickstarted a new dawn in their future-facing journey, with the release of the thrilling single ‘crying’.

The track arrives with an equally captivating, self-directed music video, which you can check out below.

Describing the video and how it brings some of the aspects of the track to life, Static Dress vocalist Olli Appleyard has shared:

“The video for ‘crying’ explores several themes of the song’s lyrical character, revolving around taboo topics presented as a battle between the sacred and the profane. 

“Rather than focusing solely on striking presentation and the visual stimulation of colour and design, we ask the viewer to travel through multiple scenes, all with their own subject matter; guilt and battling with self-loathing, mass corporate manipulation, capitalist horde mentality and weaponised lust.”

On the live scene, Static Dress are showing no sign of relenting either, with a mammoth touring run set for later this year in support of Underoath, as well as their 2000trees Festival slot in July.
