Manchester’s Loose Articles have signed with Alcopop! Records and announced details of their second EP.
Titled ‘Chaos’, the new collection will be released on 1st July 2022. The news comes alongside the title track, which you can check out now.
The four-piece have already announced a string of headline dates and festival appearances for 2022 including Gold Sounds Festival and Stockton Calling, as well as a support slot with Foo Fighters at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester on 25th June.
Talking about the new track, the band explain: “The tune was inspired by a particularly warm winter, when we were sitting around in beer gardens way too early in the year and all feeling a bit guilty for enjoying ourselves in the knowledge that the weird weather was definitely due to man made climate change and not some kindly weather god giving us northerners a well deserved break from the cold & rain.”
They describe the EP as “a satirical examination of the hazards of modern life—keyboard warriors, the death of the independent pub, sexist footy fans, and the hopelessness that the woman in the street often feels in the face of impending doom. Whilst politicians fly their private jets to climate change conferences only to sit around scratching their collective heads as to why it’s so warm in February, all that’s left to do is head to the nearest beer garden and watch the world burn.”
