Manchester punks AERIAL SALAD have unveiled another new video from their forthcoming album.

'Tied To Pieces Of Paper' is the second single to be revealed from the band's second album R.O.I., the follow-up to 2020's highly-rated Dirt Mall.

“It’s inspired by something I read where Steve Ignorant from Crass was saying that basically, back in the day, humans had less reliance on money (not needing phones, broadband, and houses being affordable) meaning that, you could go and be a fuckin punk rocker and do a bit of cash in hand work and you'd be alright,” explains vocalist/guitarist Jamie Munro. “These days the world is so driven by money and thus, employment, the song is a shout out to everyone that’s still trying to do creative endeavours alongside managing a fuckin job.”

R.O.I. is set for release on 12 April through Venn Records and is available to pre-order here.
