One of the hottest new bands on our radar, MC16 are back with an incendiary new lyric video which they're premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!
Recorded in Worcestershire and produced by Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, The Professionals) 'Brave New World' is the follow-up to their Outvoted By Robots EP and armed forces mental health charity single ‘Sleeping On Cardboard’.
“The song is about words being more powerful than weapons in this current world," says frontman Carson. "Someone says the wrong thing on Twitter and everyone is outraged… for days. Meanwhile some kid will get stabbed and those same people will be shocked, but will they be outraged? Will they ring their MP or the Police Commissioner to demand something is done about knife crime. No, because they are too busy being outraged on Twitter and hoping the person who said the wrong thing gets their comeuppance.
“Would I have got bullied at school if I had pretended my Dad was in the SAS. I can go online now and pretend to be whoever I want to be. My words have the power to create a new world for me to fake live in with all the other fakes.
“In this current crisis, when the first couple of thousand people died of the virus we were all shocked but now 600-800 people are dying every day and it's just water off a duck's back because Z-list celebrities are too busy making this crisis all about them and needing sympathy for being in lockdown and not asking for sympathy for the dead. Maybe some good will come out of it… Z-listers can't get their botox done every month so their faces might become real again.”
'Brave New World' is available now via the band's Bandcamp.
