With their new song, the London punx take a stand against bigotry.
London punk crew EAT DIRT. have revealed the video for new single Make Peace, the latest track taken from their forthcoming debut album Death Is Death released 3 June 2019 on Bearded Punk Records.
The video was shot at the band’s recent packed-out appearance at Manchester Punk Festival, with a further string of UK tour dates to follow throughout May and June.
Commenting on the song, front man Ben Mills says: “Our song Make Peace is about not allowing yourself to give up on growing and evolving as a person. It’s a rallying call to make a difference in your life and not stagnate, and become a bigot. Too many times people get stuck in their ways and won’t see the world from the other side of the coin. This song is about becoming the best version of yourself and not dying emotionally and intellectually.”
There’s no elaborate story surrounding EAT DIRT. What you see if what you get. They’re just a bunch of musicians who needed a place, and head space, to get creative, away from the mess of life in modern Britain—this band is an outlet for frustration, anger, and a rising tide of disenfranchisement that’s sweeping the country.
Formed in 2015, they’ve supported Pears, A Wilhelm Scream, The Filaments, Sheer Terror and Death by Stereo, and have fast been making a name for themselves on the UK underground punk scene with their high-energy live shows and no bullsh*t approach.
