NEWS: DEADLETTER share new single ‘Degenerate Inanimate’

Fresh off the back of their incendiary sets at this year’s Glastonbury and The Great Escape Festivals, DEADLETTER have just released their latest track, ‘Degenerate Inanimate‘ – a self-coined term referring to someone who is not who they say they are. Their slanted brand of jazzy post-punk, rich with wit and satire, has been thrilling audiences across the live circuit. Hailing from Yorkshire, the London-based band channel the droll fury of Gang of Four and the lopsided rhythms of Talking Heads into a strain of vehement post-punk, exploring the darker side of existence through a lens of narrative-driven levity. ‘Degenerate Inanimate‘ just premiered on Steve Lemacq‘s 6 Music show after their last track ‘The Snitching Hour’ was added to BBC6 Music’s A-List.

The new release sees the six-piece reach new heights, further cementing their reputation as one of the hottest acts around. Bound together by a recognition of frenetic energy and rhythm, leaving any wider ideological goal open to interpretation by the listener.

On the single, frontman Zac Lawrence says “Degenerate Inanimate alludes to the feeling of betrayal felt when someone close to you is revealed as dishonest to the bone. There’s a unique form of unease which arises from having your basic intelligence mocked, as they reveal their complete lack of decency.” Listen here:

Constantly on the road, DEADLETTER will tour across Europe and the UK throughout the year and will see them play to some of their biggest audiences to date. Their October headline tour is on-sale now, with the Manchester show already sold-out and a second one added. Tickets on sale now HERE. Catch them live while you can.
