UK punk-rockers LIFE have released the video for their track "Hollow Thing" as well as announced the release of their second album A Picture Of Good Health. The new album will be released on Sept. 20, 2019 via Afghan Moon/[PIAS].
"Hollow Thing" is the second single to be taken from LIFE’s new album. Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band hone in on a bigger and more focused sound while also channeling the lyrical content inwards. Whereas the band’s debut album Popular Music was broadly political, the new album takes a more personal approach with honest and brave lyrics that are bold in both sound and feeling, while also retaining the core DNA of their previous material.
Going on to speak about the album, Mez says, “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. 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!”
Alongside the new video, the band have also announced a series of EU/UK headline tour dates. The band recently embarked on a sold out two-week European tour as the main support for IDLES.
