UK indie-punk/emo collective itoldyouiwouldeatyou have announced that they will release their debut album, Oh Dearism, on 16th November 2018 via Alcopop! Records x Failure By Design Records.
The album is available to preorder now: http://itoldyouiwouldeatyou.limitedrun.com/
The record will be the follow up to their much-lauded Get Terrified EP, and to celebrate the news the band are sharing the video for lead single ‘Gold Rush’ in full today. The video was created by Chevy Blazer and Clumsy Bodies.
Recently playing a Pirate Studios live session with Gaffa Tape Sandy, the band will also be supporting Delta Sleep and Tangled Hair this month, as well as appearing alongside Japanese math-rock band Tricot on two very rare UK headline date appearances later this year.
Commenting on the themes behind their new material, vocalist Joey Ashworth said: “Star Wars was right. Fear does lead to anger, and I am terrified. I’m ready to get angry though. I’m tired of fear and I’m ready for the next step. I desperately want my generation to answer the call. We have to answer, because it’s almost too late. We have to choose radical love and violence because we are running out of options.
“This song is about not wanting to feel stuck in my body anymore, stuck in cycles of self harm. It’s about choosing to fight something other than myself. The marginalised people in your life are asking you to fight with them. Join them. Help. It is worth the pain for those you love. Breath in. Breath out. We can do it. The world might be ending but I’d rather be side to side with those who need my support than scared in the corner. Don’t leave me hanging.”
