Sweden‘s Bring the Hoax launch the single and music video “Jonestown”. Musically inspired by the song structures and melodies of Weezer‘s “Pinkerton” album, while lyrically drawing parallels between the Jonestown massacre and modern day lack of source criticism, “Jonestown” is a colorful and uplifting alt. rock track featuring a huge chorus that perfectly blends sugar sweet melodies with distorted guitars. The single is the second and final one from Bring The Hoax‘s self-titled debut EP, which will be released on Lövely Records on the 28th of October, 2022.
Bring the Hoax on “Jonestown”:
When we wrote Jonestown, we were thinking a lot about Weezer’s record Pinkerton which has great song structures and melodies. Therefore, the verse became dynamic and then landed in a more straight chorus.
The text is somewhat inspired by events that took place in the jungle, in the deepest of Guyana. Events that are still relevant in today’s society where we question less and less.
In an age where source criticism never has been needed as much as now – but has been replaced by godliness to our prophets online – we wonder who we really should look up to, he ones we trust, or the ones we follow.
Jonestown is out now on all streaming platforms together with a music video.
