‘Don’t Hesitate’ follows the title track, and ‘No Peace No Justice’. The record is a collaboration with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, who produced it, and releases it on his Hellcat Records label alongside Parlophone.
‘Internationally Unknown’ is the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Scum’. It is released on 25th January.
“We listened to some old funk records then we went into the live room and tried making our own and I was playing bongos on it at the start,” he says of the track. “Liam Haygarth’s playing one of those short-scaled ukulele basses, they have plastic strings so the bass in it sounds crazy. When I went back to England, I had had this drum pack of weird reggae breaks and drum hits. I chopped it up and kind of wanted to go for a weird Rebel MC ‘Street Tuff’ vibe. Tim and I put a sort of Run DMC stabby guitar in which I think really worked.”
