With production from Frank Turner and lead single arriving just weeks after Turner’s own record ‘FTHC’ landed the UK Number One spot, ‘Sick Moon‘ is False Heads’ long-awaited second album, set for release on 30 September 2022 via Scruff of the Neck Records.
Discussing the story behind upcoming album ‘Sick Moon’, frontman Luke Griffiths explains:
“The album is just a pure expression of everything I’ve felt and feel. It’s pure rage, isolation, and alienation, yet also sarcastic and hopefully sprinkled with a bit of humour. It’s a stream of consciousness I used to deal with my struggles with depression, insomnia, anxiety, and issues with substance abuse.
It’s also about how often the external world seems to parallel and affect your internal struggle. I get trapped into a cycle of apathy and suffocation with the idea of eternalism and eternal recurrence: maybe we have no free will and maybe we do all of this again and again, forever. Humans aren’t meant to have access to every piece of information on the planet at once. I’ve felt frustration over the last five years in the music industry; rock and pop music have become an endeavour for kids from super-rich families or kids from parents already in the industry.”
