World underground music from the 70s and 80s meets hardcore/punk and modern harmony, using modern and analog recording and sampling techniques.
Of the album’s title Casablancas says,
“Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business is put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king:whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).”
The band will be melting peoples’ faces off in the U.S., starting this October.
