Dead Rabbits share new single 'Slowdown' and announce new album 'A Different Place' out Sept 2 via Fuzz Club Records.
Southampton psych-rock band Dead Rabbits are today announcing their fourth album ‘A Different Place’ – their first since 2016’s ‘Everything Is A Lie’ – and sharing the lead single ‘Slowdown’. The album is due out September 2nd on Fuzz Club and you can stream ‘Slowdown’ and its accompanying video below. Pre-order the LP here.
From euphoria to despair, Dead Rabbits' new album 'A Different Place' takes you on a journey through the ups and downs of the day-to-day. Over three years of cancellations, disappointment and disillusion, global events made the album's creation more difficult than anyone could've imagined. All hurdles overcome, Dead Rabbits' fourth studio LP sees them return with their own brand of heavy-hitting psychedelic rock. From soft velvet sounds to the raw and explosive, electronic undertones supplement a wall of guitars.
Talking about the album, vocalist and guitarist Tom Hayes says: "I wanted to create an album that takes the listener somewhere else. Musically I wanted to create something that captures how we as a band actually sound. But within that, each song tells a different story and the music compliments them. I took a reflective look into my mental health. Highlighting just how fine the line is between successes and failures. Typically, external words and actions encourage a greater positive outcome. That's how it works for me, hopefully listeners can feel where I'm coming from."
On the swirling noise-pop of lead single ‘Slowdown’, Hayes adds: "Musically I wanted this song to feel uplifting, it compensates for the negative topic. The song is about a time when, on several occasions, someone I know failed to commit suicide. Not just affecting one person, it affected a whole network of people around them. It completely stopped people's lives in their tracks, if they wanted it or not, it was happening. The lyrics aren't black and white, they don't describe every detail. Instead, they describe the whirlwind of emotions that takes place when something like this happens. From empathy to being completely selfish, from conversations to actions. It was a tough time, I'm sure there are plenty of people who can relate."
