The Snuts have returned with a brand new single, ‘Burn The Empire’.
Their first new material since their chart-topping debut album ‘W.L.’ earlier this year, frontman Jack Cochrane explains: “I wanted the word ‘empire’ to feel open, almost rhetorical to what constitutes or qualifies as an oppressive factor in your life, because it certainly exists for 99% of people. We were driven to stand up against the negative effects of big corporations on the everyday person. We all understand that these companies act ruthlessly and unethically in the name of profit.”
“I think young people have always wanted a fairer and more equal society and it’s the voices of the old, the discontent and the ignorant that try and squash that. We believe in 2022 there is no place for fascism or oppression of any kind and we must burn the empire that represents it.”
So, erm, yeah. Thanks Jack! Viva la… erm… revolution?!?
