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.
