Grunge-pop outfit Forever Cult kick-started their UK run with Fizzy Blood by releasing a new track.
Abrasive, fuzzy and oscillating, the track is a sonic depiction of a night out escalating. USURPER is also the first track featuring the band’s newly recruited second guitarist Wilko.
Vocalist KK says about the track: “Usurper is a cold observation of a night out. The lyrics are about my surroundings and the different feelings and thoughts i had as the night progressed. Slowly deteriorating until the final guitars swell into chaos just like my brain. It’s the first song we wrote when Wilko joined the band. Also I think Usurper is a great word”
Produced By Matt Peel (Eagulls, Bad Breeding) at Leeds studio The Nave, USURPER follows 2017’s EP Homewrecker on Clue Records which streamed with DIY pre-release. The track is telling of things to come from Forever Cult later this year.
“We’ve been quiet for a little while but it’s taken time to develop our sound again. New songs are coming thick and fast in a totally different way to usual. We’re writing all together in a practise room jamming out ideas more than before. It’s really exciting all over again and has really given us a new lease of life” bassist Alex comments.
Comprising of up of Kieran Clarke (vocals, guitar), Alex Greaves (bass, vocals), James Douglas Wilkinson (guitar, vocals)and Aaron Snowdon (drums), Forever Cult are a formidable force on the live circuit, highlights including support to Pulled Apart By Horses, Francobollo alongside Leeds Festival.
