MUSIC NEWS: Kid Dad Announce EP Details & Release Video For New Single ‘As Soon As America’
Kid Dad have announced their new EP Bloom, due for release on 10th December 2021 via Long Branch Records.
To celebrate, the band have released a video for their new single As Soon As America.
“People can be uncomfortable when artists criticise countries, states, systems or political constructs – especially when it’s not their own. We are aware of this and, because of it, we are constantly thinking about whether it is the right thing to talk and sing about. In the end, we believe that, regardless of the critique, the right thing to do is to voice your opinion and anger towards injustice, suffering, and inhumanity,” says vocalist/guitarist Marius Vieth.
“The western civilization is growing up, in many places, with a glorified picture of America. “The land of limitless opportunities” is an aspiration you learn in preschool. But, as you get older and see wars in other countries, the racism, police brutality, and many other injustices; this picture can quickly change.
“We LOVE the culture, we LOVE the freedom, and we LOVE the people and so many things about America, but we cannot ignore the negative aspects.”
