Speaking about the new version, frontman Rick Maguire, says: “This is the version of the song that generally sits better with the rest of our live set. Because I still feel strongly about the song’s sentiment, I really appreciate that it’s form carries some dynamic versatility”.

The follow up to their 2017 critical breakthrough, “A Hairshirt of Purpose”, the band’s new record (released via Exploding In Sound Records in Spring) has been shaping up to become one of the most exciting rock records this year, earning plaudits from the likes of Pitchfork (7.9), Kerrang!, The 405, Sterogum, The FADER, Noisey, Consequence of Sound, NPR, London in Stereo, The Line Of Best Fit, Louder, Brooklyn Vegan and many more.

Speaking about the new record, frontman Rick Maguire says: “I’m just trying to figure out where I’m at with the whole thing. Living like this never ceases to be strange. I’m doing exactly what I want to do and I love it very much, that’s stayed there for me, but I’m just watching things change around me as I go.

I’m a mid 30s guy on that line, and these are my own emotional observations on those feelings. I put a lot of energy into making these things that are about, on some level, how I feel, but the feelings themselves are like riddles, so the songs are the best answers I can come up with. I put a lot of myself into it. I think it’s a good honest piece of work”.

“Green and Gray” is out now via Exploding In Sound Records - order here.
