Sussex folk-punks MATILDA’S SCOUNDRELS have a new video which they’re premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Bow To The Powers’  is the first single to be released from the band’s debut album As The Tide Turns, out next month through TNS Records. The video is by legendary filmmaker Mark Richards.

Formed in 2014, the six-piece have been building a solid reputation, touring up and down the country with the likes of THE LEVELLERS, FEROCIOUS DOG and THE MAHONES, as well as appearing at this year’s Rebellion and Boomtown Fair.

The band say, “As The Tide Turns has been a labour of love for all of us as a band for over 8 months from initially recording it to getting it all finished and we couldn’t be happier with what we managed to achieve. This album offers a few party tunes to get you in the mood for drinking with your mates but it also offers so much more with us having written about our experiences in the Calais Jungle through to protest songs inspired by people marching against all manner of issues to the massive injustices being experienced the world over by privatised penal systems and so much more. It’s an album we feel is about the times we live in right now and about the opportunity to change the direction that all this crazy shit is going into a positive future which is what inspired the album name which itself we felt was the feel of the album from the songs we have written for it over the last 2 years. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did writing it all and we can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
