Set for release on April 19 via SharpTone Records, ‘Upeople’ will include previou singles ‘smother’ and brand-new offering ‘waste’.

The new track arrives with its own video, which sees the band perform with fierce aplomb in a makeshift garden – have a watch of the video below.

Commenting on the new single and its politically-charged basis, the band have shared: 

“waste is essentially a ‘government bad’ song in the most apathetic way possible. 

“Feeling completely helpless while watching public services being decimated with zero signs of remorse or self awareness from those in positions of power. 

“There is an element of Brexit inspired self inflicted wounds. People lapping up what was essentially propaganda then complaining when they get what they voted for. 

“I know it’s not my place to say… I’m no expert… but you can’t deny the irreparable damage that has been and will continue to be caused. We’re going to waste it all away.”
