How long did it take to write/record? We'd written it some time ago and it came quite easily, it was a more aggressive style for us which was a fun change. We recorded it over 2 sessions ourselves, didn't take long!

Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? Yes, it'll be on an upcoming EP which we're working on, hopefully to be released before too long.

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? I can't speak for all of us but personally for the lead guitar I was thinking of late '70s punk rock and bands like The Cramps, with that sleazy surf delay.

We'll like this song if we like... Pissed off, fuzzy, thumping, surfy, shouty rock songs.

Do you play it differently live? It's about the same speed but we go completely nuts, I mean we can't even keep still for one second when we play it.

When and where is your launch/next gig? We're currently touring Australia for our I Hate Your Summer Tour, we just got back from Perth/Fremantle and the next show is 7 Feb at the Record Crate in Sydney.
