MUSIC NEWS: Meryl Streek Announce Debut Album & Share Video For New Single ‘False Apologies’
Dublin based avant-garde punk outfit Meryl Streek have announced their debut album 796 is set for release on 4th November 2022 via Venn Records.
“The album is for anyone that has been affected by the church’s actions and those that feel that the government not only mistreated them but took away their voice along with it. I’ve always been drawn to bands that say what they think loudly and clearly. I grew up hearing A House, Guernica and Sack speaking their minds, the punk movement too. I’m coming from the same place but with melodies and pop music so hopefully people will stop and listen to what I’ve got to say,” explains Meryl Streek.
Alongside the album announcement, they have shared their double AA side single False Apologies/Yesterday.
“‘False Apologies’ was a way to deal with my anger about the atrocities committed by the Catholic church against the young women and children of Ireland, specifically the mother and baby homes. Sadly not their only crimes, it made me sick that the government and church not only allowed this to happen but have actively tried to erase it from history. That in my mind is a step too far,” the band explains.
A video for False Apologies has been released which was directed by Peter Kingston and stars Jack Galvin, check it out below!
