The single is the third to be taken from the band’s new album, ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’ after ‘Let’s Get To Work’ and ‘Tamagotchi‘. The new album will be released on March 15 on Spineform records and you can pre-order it here.

Their new song sees the band “expressing an intense passion fuelled by anger and frustration” and “vehemently condemn[ing] the pervasive systemic racism, sexual violence, and rampant corruption within the police force.”

Writing about the song, the band said: “The system of policing is supposedly designed to protect the interests of the people, but in reality, it only works to protect the interests of the state and the systems of power that control this country.” They went on to claim: “Like our political system; policing is institutionally racist, rife with misogyny & sexual violence, and is granted the power and license to act above the law with impunity.

“People have a right to feel angry and betrayed by the lack of accountability for police misconduct in this country, it’s a disgrace. It shouldn’t take widespread public unrest, social media outrage, or protest for police to be held to account for crimes and misconduct, it should be the norm.”

Speaking about the band’s new album, the band previously said: “I know it’s a cliche, but this really is our best work ever. We put everything into this record, but actively decided not to stray too far from the path of ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’, as we felt there was still more ground to be covered and honed on that vibe.

“Lyrically and musically, it’s more concise, meaningful and deliberate, which ties everything together really well; it feels like a collection of songs from the same family.”

The band have also unveiled details of an extensive 2024 UK and European headline tour.

Our review added: “A record written in the trenches of class warfare and defiantly recorded during a devastating pandemic, it’s smart, emotional and fearless.”
