MUSIC NEWS: The Blinders Release New Single ‘Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun)’
The Blinders have revealed their new single Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun), taken from their forthcoming album Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath which is due for release on 17th July via Modern Sky UK.
“Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun) is a song that was written as a consequence of the USA’s separation policy and the resulting images of children being placed in cages separate from their families,” the band explain. “It is perhaps one of the more literal songs we’ve ever produced where we allowed ourselves to take the images directly from the evening news and put them straight into the song. It is, however, not just an expression of anger at the policy, the complete collapse in morality that it represents or the administration that implemented it, but is also meant to spark a question of personal responsibility – questioning whether we can do more as individuals to prevent such abuses of power and humanity.”
