THE GURU GURU have announced their new album Make (Less) Babies is set for release on 27th October 2023 via Swiss label Hummus Records in collaboration with French label A Tant Rêver Du Roi Records.

Alongside the album announcement, the alt-rock band have released the video for lead single Lotta Tension.

“This is a song about performance pressure. Too many choices, possibilities, FOMO, constant streams of media—we’ve all experienced the challenges of a world that changes too fast. The tension in your neck or in your shoulders is often the only indicator of being overstressed.  The cause of stress building up is much harder to pinpoint. I tried to put into words the causes and feelings that accompany the tension,” explains vocalist Tom “the Bomb” Adriaenssens.

“Most musicians have a weird relationship with stress because a lot of the time it’s what drives us to be creative. Lots of top athletes don’t speak of stress, they use the word ‘drive’ instead. We need tension and stress in our lives, but we need to be more aware of it. Treat the disease, not the symptoms—something like that.”

Check out the video for the track below!

See the band live at ArcTanGent Festival and Burn It Down Festival later this year.
