DESPERATE MEASURES have unveiled another new video ahead of their forthcoming full-length debut. 

Taking its name from the North London thoroughfare linking Tottenham in the east with Holloway in the west, 'Seven Sisters' is drawn from the album Sublime Destruction, which is out next week through Cadiz Music.

“I live and work on Seven Sisters Road, one of London's most deprived streets,” explains frontman Eugene Butcher. “There's glimmers of hope against the odds but desperation and despair are always near.”

The album, their follow-up to their 2021 mini-album rinsed as once again recorded with producer Andy Brook (Status Quo, Wonk Unit, Role Models) at his Brook Studios in Wallington, Surrey.


Set for release on 22 March through Cadiz, Sublime Destruction is available to pre-order here.
