Alternative punk outfit Nervus have dropped “Fake” - the final track from their brand-new album “Tough Crowd”, out on September 27th, via Big Scary Monsters (UK) and Get Better Records (US). 

The accompanying video stars Milk Teeth’s Becky Blomfield, alongside Em Foster, lead vocalist of Nervus, and encourages fans to enter a competition to win test pressings and merch by creating their own video for the track using thehashtag #beyourownnervus.

“Once again Nervus are inviting you to "be your own nervus". Do it yourself. A lot of people will try and have you believe that you need lots of money to make your music or be in a band, or that music that has more money spent on it is somehow better. It’s not! You can do it too. Make your own video to "Fake", and you could win a whole load of Nervus merch! Just use the hashtag #beyourownnervus and upload your version to YouTube to be in with a chance of winning!”, said Em Foster.
Nervus have never shied away from exploring complex issues within their unique breed of punk music. Themes of gender dysphoria, identity and queerness ran rife through first record “Permanent Rainbow”, a record written in the bedroom of Foster and serving as a personal catharsis for her. Follow up “Everything Dies” touched on the human impact on the environment, a colossal subject that the band have since delved into even deeper on new album “Tough Crowd”, with “They Don’t” tearing into Boris Johnson’s pledge to invest in policing rather than in community services.
Lyrically, “Tough Crowd” tackles fascism, austerity and the authorities, whilst at the same time touching on personal matters such as depression and disillusionment, both as a result of these things and in isolation to them.

Having spent ten days together as a band at The Ranch in Southampton, steered by Neil Kennedy (Milk Teeth, Creeper), Nervus stepped away from their lo-fi, self-produced bedroom recordings, and came into their own, together. As a result, “Tough Crowd” is their most ferocious yet joyful offering to date; as biting as it is inviting.

The band also recently announced a string of UK and US dates, including a main support slot at Pup’s Electric Ballroom show in London, and a stop at The Fest in Gainesville, USA. See all tour dates here.
