“Sugarcoated Psychosis is a battle cry spawned in retaliation against mass manufactured media.” says frontman Dylan Davidson. “It is the product of our disillusioned generation raised by egocentric icons. It is the twisted retelling of me tuning in the radio and saying ‘What the fuck?’ out loud even with no one else in the car. It is us kicking into action the next phase of Deadlights. Eat it up.”
The post hardcore heroes dropped their last single, Bathed in Venom, back in April.
“Much like Bathed In Venom, Sugarcoated Psychosis is an internal frustration relevant to us right now; one that we needed to flush out.” says Davidson. “We wanted to release it as a stand alone single as thematically, it is quite separate from the rest of what we’re working on. We’re painting on a canvas that all ties in together in subtle ways.”
The Brisbane boys have been a lil quiet this year, but Davirison has promised fans a big 2020.
“We realise we’ve been a bit of a tease this year. With Sugarcoated Psychosis, that’ll be two singles released this year; but never fear, a lot more music is coming. Patience is a virtue! Our fans are so damn devoted and we want you to know that we live and breathe for this, and are not slowing down.”
Sugarcoated Psychosis is available for streaming and purchase now through all digital outlets.
