London trio THEM BLOODY KIDS burst into 2021 with their critically acclaimed and politically charged debut album, Radical Animals. Today, the band has released an animated video for the title track, which you can watch here.
“The video for ‘Radical Animals’ brings the album artwork to life, a dystopian Britain with a nuclear Prime Minister and the fight to overthrow the oppressor,” explains frontman Sebastian Moederle-Lumb. “The song is a protest song against the use of nuclear weapons from a human perspective – “Why would you drop a nuclear bomb, you’re killing everybody I love!””
Produced by Justin Hill (SikTh, Bury Tomorrow, Heart Of A Coward), Radical Animals is an aural journey of the world we see today, with confrontational lyrical themes that explore politically-incited hatred and violence, humanity’s growing lack of empathy, fear, inequality, and distrust of the system and those who run the world. The band deliver an exhilarating fusion of raw, stoner doom-edged rock riffs, groovy nu metal rhythms, world music influences and catchy, chant-along choruses with stadium ambition.
