Rejuvenated rockers DESPERATE MEASURES are back with a brand new single and video.
'Thinking Of England' is the band's first new material since the release of their widely acclaimed mini-album Rinsed, released last year through Easy Action.
Once again, the track was recorded with producer Andy Brook (Status Quo, Wonk Unit, Ginger Wildheart) at his Brook Studios in Wallington, Surrey.
According to guitarist Michael Gaffney, 'Thinking Of England' is “about leaving a bad situation, whether it be physically or mentally, trying to find light at the end of the tunnel and staying hopeful, realising that you might be fucked now, but it’s not always going to be that way.”
The band have a full summer of shows ahead of them, kicking off with a single launch show this Friday 20 May at The Water Rats, London with support from The Duel and Seven Days And Doesn't Die. Tickets are on sale here.
