The EP was heavily influenced by the murder of George Floyd and the BLM protests that followed. Frontman Jason Aalon Butler spent 13 days on the streets in protest, before coming home on the 14th day to write WRONG GENERATION.
“This project is art as activism first. I’m talking about what’s happening and what needs to happen. I hope you understand there’s going to be pain in progress. After dismantling and deconstructing all of these things, we can find a beautiful place to be together. For me, this whole EP is that 13 days after 34 years. You fucked with the WRONG GENERATION.”
The announcement is followed by details of its lead single, BITE BACK, set to drop on 19th October. Alongside it, the band has also announced their first-ever global livestream tour, which will feature six ticketed performances, broadcasting live in market specific time zones.
The “WORLD TOUR FOR THE WRONG GENERATION” will hit Sydney, Australia on 27th October 7:00pm AEST.
“We are so thankful for our allies from all over, so we wanted to find a way to give back to every part of the world that we were lucky enough to reach during our last album cycle. We want to offer a new type of LIVE experience during this pandemic period. Exclusivity to each region, actual live in the moment filming, no edits, utilising a brand-new DIRECT audio feed, making each demo feels as live as possible in an era where the traditional live performance is seemingly unachievable. We feel we have found a way that most closely achieves that essence in a way that has not yet been done.” adds Butler.
WRONG GENERATION will drop on 23rd October.
