Los Angeles Hardcore band Matriarchs have dropped a new single, “Deadman” – a slamming re-recording of their off 2015 debut album Scandalous Jointz with their current lineup. They also released an amazing animated concert video for the track that really brings a unique and new flavor to this rising, impressive group. The band is releasing their current crop of singles, all on streaming DSPS, to stay busy and engage the fans, until touring returns. These singles follow the acclaimed album Year of the Rat, which released last fall on the respected hardcore label Upstate Records. Stay tuned for an interview with the band here soon, and check out the video today at Ghost Cult!
Matriarchs founder Ben Levi commented:
“‘Deadman’ is a song originally off our first album ‘Scandalous Jointz,’ redone here with our new lineup. It’s a song about the struggles of the working class and the tools the 1% use to influence our decision-making and priorities and liberating ourselves from that. I think the themes are even more relevant today, given our dependence and blind trust in technology, which we are dependent on for our everyday activities and our primary source of information. As a society, we are as divided now as ever before, even with technology and social media being marketed as tools that bring us closer together. This song is about rebelling against all masters, gurus, and self-proclaimed distributors of truth to learning to trust our own intuition and judgment. It’s also an extremely fun and heavy song and we wanted to do something different and special with the visuals.”
