Five-piece London hard rock band Dead Man’s Whiskey has released a brand-new single in the title track to their forthcoming EP, Breakout, that will be itself be released on Friday 1st October.
Releasing their debut album back in 2017, Dead Man’s Whiskey steadily found themselves invited to take part in major festivals, such as the Rambling Man Fair in 2018, and Download in 2019, as well as headlining their own UK tour while releasing well-regarded singles. Then came the pandemic.
However, after a year of lockdown, where they’ve been writing, Dead Man’s Whiskey went and recorded their new EP with John Mitchell (Alter Bridge, Architects, Enter Shikari and Inglorious) sat in the producer’s chair.
With so much change and uncertainty in the world, creating the EP provided some unique challenges for the band, as frontman Nico Rogers noted, regarding the development of the single:
“This one has been on a bit of a journey! We had this song mostly written before lockdown started, it was ironically about the drudgery of being stuck in the office, which we’ve all ended up so far away from it started to lose relevance. The feeling of being trapped somewhere though, and especially that longing for a night of live rock and roll, has intensified.
“This is where this track lives, it’s all about the hunger we have to get back up there and play, how much we want to see our friends out there playing, too. There’s some anger in there, but twinned with desperation and after the last year a little sadness, too.”
The single is accompanied by a music video, that you can watch right here at RAMzine.
