Dream Nails have announced their sophomore album Doom Loop, due for release on 13th October 2023 via their new label home Marshall Records.

“Doom Loop is an exploration of the repeated cycles we find ourselves in,” comments vocalist Ishmael Kirby. “From political injustice and patriarchal systems to the negative spirals of our minds. A doom loop is a crisis that starts to feed on itself. It feels like there is no escape. But there is. This album is a reflection of ourselves, the world we live in, and the one we want to create.”

“Specifically, Doom Loop delves into masculinity in its many forms,” expands drummer Lucy Katz. “The good guy, the lads at school, the narcissistic politician, the incel, the sexual predator, the police officer. It looks into gender-based oppression from childhood; how isolation can breed violence against women and the rhetoric that spawns incels.”

“On the album we also celebrate masculinity by telling stories about butch and trans masculine identities,” adds guitarist Anya Pearson. “We show the shared responsibility we have in fighting misogyny. Empathy is hard to find in a divided world, but we seek it out, advocate for it, and ask how far it goes.”

The queer punk collective have also shared a video for their new single Good Guy.  

Doom Loop is available to pre-order HERE.
