EAT DIRT, the London-based collective of pissed off punk rockers have unveiled their new video, ‘.48’, ahead of their first show this Sunday at The Sebright Arms, London.
Speaking on the track, EAT DIRT‘s vocalist said
“The song is about growing out of the party life, and not being angry any more. And the struggle of trying to find something to be angry about. Like social media “influencers” and sensationalist journalism.”
The band play their first show this Sunday, 30th July at The Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green, London supporting Fights And Fires. The show is free entry. Doors at 7pm.
30 Jul – The Sebright Arms, London w/ Fights And Fires
04 Aug – New Cross Inn, London w/ PEARS
Having formed in late 2016, following the spiraling storm of political idiocy and rising tensions throughout the United Kingdom, EAT DIRT are angry. The members of EAT DIRT, previously of well established UK acts, put their frustrations with real life together and have created the bands debut 4 track EP, titled ‘EAT DIRT – I’, a raging and viceral blast of aggressive punk rock. Their anger is unrelenting and they have lots to say.
“I’d given up on music. I wasn’t really angry enough. I had nothing to sing about anymore. Then the whole Brexit thing happened. I’m mad at people. I’m mad at the world around me. As a group, we need to vent. EAT DIRT is that release.”
Musically, EAT DIRT draw influence from The Bronx, Every Time I Die, Gallows and Comeback Kid, building a fast, unrelenting punk rock sound of their very own. They have no interest in “making it”, they don’t care for industry politics and will not pander to anyone – they simply want to play punk rock, have fun and release that pent up aggression.
‘EAT DIRT – I’ clocks in at under 5 minutes, brought to life through the production skills of Justin Hill (ex-Sikth). The message is clear. These guys are frustrated and angry and don’t hold back. It’s honest and stripped back punk rock, at it’s finest.
