Midlands Hardcore Punk outfit, LAST HOUNDS drop their latest single “Bleed”. taken from their forthcoming debut album “Burden”. Set for release on October 22nd via Venn Records, “Burden” follows two self released Eps “Last Hounds” and “Old Dreams”.
“Bleed is a song about people in positions of power forgetting about the “little guy” in times of crisis.” Explains vocalist Mike Skelcher. “Far too often, we find that when shit hits the fan, the average joe like you and I are the people to get ignored, undervalued or left behind in the race for normality and equality.
“We are forced to make difficult, life altering decisions on a daily basis without any guidance or support from those who claim to be our leaders when ultimately, they are the first to condemn us and attack when they deem our life choices to be inappropriate in line with their policies and ideologies.”
“This song is a “fuck you” to our so called leaders who are only out for themselves in times of global downfall.”
Melding influences combining the fearless energy of the likes of Gallows and Comeback Kid, the ear worm style song writing of Letlive. with the swagger of Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, LAST HOUNDS were just starting to build momentum when the world shut down. With a new fury fuelled by the fundamental issues in society exposed by the pandemic, LAST HOUNDS will be unstoppable once they are unleashed.
