JOHN have released their new single The Common Cold, taken from their upcoming fourth album A Life Diagrammatic.

The track uses sampled noise to hammer home the damaging role of traditions in our present – and how these traditions often prevent positive changes in our future.

“I’m often thinking about the changes of technology since our childhood,” comments drummer/lead vocalist John Newton. “As two individuals that grew with the appearance of mobile phones and the internet. It’s now increasingly hard to remember the years spent previous to this. Only dwindling examples, like finding out about music from now-defunct printed magazines bought from now-disappeared corner shops.”

A Life Diagrammatic is due for release on 22nd September 2023 via Brace Yourself/Pets Care Records.
