Afterkicking off their 2019 with ‘Moral Fibre’ in Spring, Hull’s finest propulsive punks LIFE have revealed details of their second album, plus a brand new single.
The LP is called ‘A Picture Of Good Health’, and is out on 20th September via Afghan Moon and PIAS, while the searing new single (which you can hear below, of course), is called ‘Hollow Thing’.
“‘A Picture of Good Health’ is not a collage of work but rather a snapshot of time; our time and the time of those around us,” says frontman Mez Green.
“It’s political, but in a personal way. It’s a body of work that explores and examines the band’s inner-selves through a precise period; a period that has brought pain, loneliness, blood, guts, single parenthood, depression and the need for survival and love. It is the sense and need for belonging that is the resounding end note!”
