Melodic tech-rock quintet FIRST SIGNS OF FROST have released the video for their latest single ‘Meat Week’, taken from their latest EP The Shape Of Things To Come – out now via Basick Records.
“The song itself is about the Syria crisis and the divide of people in the U.K. I went out to Calais a couple of years ago and witnessed protesters waiting at the shoreline at Dover,” explains guitarist/vocalist Owen Hughes-Holland.“‘Meat Week’ was then written from the perspective of one of the protesters, with their blind sighted, one dimensional view and sheer anger towards the people fleeing their country for survival.”
