Yorkshire punk outfit The Lounge Society have announced their debut EP Silk for the Starving with their latest single “Cain’s Heresy.”
The garage rock anthem arrived with a Nick Farrimond-directed visual that was filmed at the iconic Hebden Bridge Trades Club. The clip pays homage to The Strokes’ “The Modern Age” video—the track celebrates its 20th anniversary this year—and features a cameo by The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael.
“‘Cain’s Heresy’ is a portrait of the world we’re headed to—where consumers lie sedated while ‘This Week’s Hot Trend’ and ‘101 Style Tips For Summer’ are forced down their throats by gloved hands,” explained the band, per DIY Mag. “It’s our way of saying ‘not on my watch’. Cain and Abel were brothers at war, and this song is our last stand in the war on culture which is being waged by corporations at the moment.”
Silk for the Starving is set to be released June 18 and will also feature previously released “Generation Game” and “Burn The Heather.”
