New band, new year & a new tune, Lockjaw’s latest signing, borts, are looking to be a band to watch out for in 2021. They kick-start the year with a new single ‘Get Sold’.
Following early radio support from the BBC R1 Rock Show and Kerrang! Radio‘s FRESH BLOOD, Lockjaw Records’ latest signings, borts, have their latest single ‘Get Sold’ available to stream through all good DSP’s.
Commenting on the track, vocalist, Tom said: “A few years back, some of us went on a nationwide arena tour with a great band, and this song is about what transpired. It’s a reflection of how the whole experience made me feel and what I took from it.”
This punchy punk number shows the band’s penchant for quirkiness, as the song blends catchy sing-a-long choruses alongside more traditional fast punk sounds and less-familiar elements such as a classical string section. Tom furthers, “It started off a slow “rock n roll suicide clone” and then we thought “hey, that’s boring let’s play it really fast and sing it way too high for our voices instead”.
The track is the latest to be taken from their newly-announced debut album Preach This! which is set for release this spring on Lockjaw Records, with further details TBA.
The lockdown has been keeping them from performing live, but the band are holding regular live streams of a pre-recorded gig in a bid to raise funds and awareness for much-loved Kingston venue The Fighting Cocks. Watch their live performance of new single ‘Get Sold’ here.
A 3-piece punk band from Salisbury in the South West of England, the trio formed from a longstanding friendship and a mutual love for music, films, games, and good old-fashioned chilled out hangs. Previously involved with the likes of Your Demise and Tireless, the friends have now returned in their latest guise with a pair of EPs which will combine to make their 2021 debut album release, including tracks taken from their imaginatively-titled four track debut EP1.
Lockjaw Records is an independent European punk and hardcore label who are proud to be part of a thriving international music community, built on friendship, social-responsibility and a mutual love of punk rock.
