Art-punk icon Lynks has announced a brand new trilogy, ‘MEN’.

Set to arrive in full on 1st April, the news comes alongside ‘Hey Joe (Relax)’, the second track and follow up from last month’s explosive return ‘Silly Boy’.

It also arrives with the announcement of their biggest headline tour to date, including a stop at London’s Heaven on 18th March. 

Speaking on the track, Lynks explains: “’Hey Joe (Relax)’ is about bringing a guy you’ve been dating to meet your friends, and suddenly clocking that he’s a complete twat. It’s about the moment where your entire perspective about a man shifts. And you see him for what he is; a devil’s advocating, button pushing, confrontational, edgelord. And it’s suddenly totally unthinkable that you ever wanted to shag him.”

The track comes with a video, directed by Theo Watkins (IDLES, Palace).

Lynks says: “I find modern self-care culture really annoying. Brands telling you if you buy their £9.99 monthly subscription you’ll be ‘investing in your mental health’. Like what the fuck? It’s so uncomfortable. And so with the video, I kinda wanted to channel the nasty-ness of that whole world. I homed in on the ‘Relax’ part of the song, taking loads of tropes of relaxation and self-care (ASMR, clean eating, houseplants etc.) and pushing them to a place of deep discomfort.  And it was honestly one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever been on. Working with director Theo Watkins, set designer Molly Crisp, DOP Jamie Harding and stylist Adam Martin on the video was amazing – absolute dream team! I’m so happy with how it’s turned out.”

2022 will also see Lynks head out on their biggest headline tour to date. They’ll also join Metronomy on select dates on their European tour.
