June 16th heralds the return of psychoutfit, ‘Bad For Lazarus’ as they announce the release of their single, ‘Caught In The Twist’, off their upcoming debut Album ‘Life’s A Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang!’, due for release 28th July.
Reception for BFL’s first single, ‘My Muddle’ back at the end of 2012, bordered on hysterical, as they watched the record’s video fly to number two on the NME’s most popular video chart. Giving their fans and followers even more cowbell this time round, ‘Caught In The Twist’ is a fiery frolic of pleasingly scuffed up vocal harmonies, Rich and Richie’s trademark multi-guitar meatiness, and newcomer garage ghoul, Andrew Knightley’s distinct psycho-surf keys. “When I started the band,” says frontman Rich Fownes, “I said I wanted it to be like Buddy Holly meets Slayer. Well, here you go.”
Rich Fownes comments “Lyrically Caught In The Twist is a love letter to the way of life that this band bestows upon us; it’s not always pretty, but it’s about that sense of perspective : we would all daydream about doing what we’re doing when we were kids. It’s easy to forget that, you can get blinkered and twisted. You can look at a band like an emotional and fiscal black hole…but you could look at a child the same way. That is the perspective, we are wading in a pool of madness, and the song is saying thank you for the chance! The song could be called “woah man, I didn’t see THAT coming”
Upcoming live dates are as follows…
