Ashnikko has dropped two new tracks, ‘Panic Attacks in Paradise’ and ‘Maggots’

The two very different singles are streaming now.

Ashnikko has dropped two new tracks.

Titled ‘Panic Attacks in Paradie’ and ‘Maggots’, they’re two very different prospects.

Ashnikko explains: “’Panic Attacks in Paradise’ and ‘Maggots’ were both written when i was in a very low place. A nasty festering place where brushing my teeth and getting out of bed felt like a win. ‘PAIP’ is a commentary on how much i was annoying myself at the time.

“Everything was fine. I was healthy and my career was going great. I was in a metaphorical “paradise”. But alas my brain chemistry had other plans. I was in so much pain and i couldn’t put a finger on it. I was an insufferable mess, so obsessed with my own hurt. I was leading it around with me like a rabid dog, letting it bite anyone i came into contact with.

“Where ‘PAIP’ is soft and forlorn, ‘Maggots’ is pure rage. I’m casting a protective shield of electricity around myself and daring anyone to try to cross it. I decide that being a little villainous is an easier lifestyle choice. I’d rather be a raging bitch than let people take advantage of my kindness. I will take every parasite burrowing its way into my flesh and flatten it under my boots.”

So there we go.

Ashnikko is heading out on tour for a sold-out run this December. You can find those dates after the jump, and check out ‘Panic Attacks in Paradise’ and ‘Maggots’ below.
