Following the announcement of their brand new album 'GLUE', which is set for release in May through Pure Noise Records, Boston Manor have today dropped their brand new single.
Last year they dropped the track 'Liquid' which featured Trophy Eyes frontman John Floreani on vocals, but today they've dropped the first official single of their new album campaign, in the form of 'Everything Is Ordinary'.
Check out 'Eveything Is Ordinary' below:
Speaking of 'GLUE', Boston Manor frontman Henry Cox has shared, “I want people to listen to it and feel something and think about things. The aim of the whole record is to make people angry. It's to make them go ‘Well, this pisses me off, how can I change it? What is one thing that I can personally do – that I can start doing today – to make a difference?’ Because we can do better than this. We just need to start.”
“It's a lot more abrasive and a weirder record,” says Cox when musing on the sounds comprising ‘GLUE’. “It's just new territory for us. The whole point was to throw away any preconceived notions of what the band is and push ourselves out of our comfort zone.” These are not just the most primal and plain-speaking songs the band have ever recorded, but everything the previous seven years have been leading up to. “This is the start of our band finally becoming the band that we want to be,” concludes Cox. “It's taken us so long to get here, but I'm really proud of us for becoming our own thing. Not once did we think about what people wanted to hear – we just went entirely down the rabbit hole with it. Our only rule was to do what we wanted to do. And I'm really happy that we did that.”
Boston Manor's new album 'GLUE' is set for release May 01 through Pure Noise Records.
