LESE MAJESTY DROP SINGLE/VIDEO “AGE OF OUTRAGE”
Inspired by the outrage trend gripping the thumbs of the current digital age, the point of view is from the perspective of someone who’s made a mistake and can’t live it down. “It’s personal experience” said Joel. “I wrote this stupid joke as a teenager and I always thank my lucky Zuckerberg’s that social media wasn’t around, or I would have been destroyed…. now whenever I see someone repeating the same pattern, even if what they write is absurd, a part of me can empathise with them.”Bassist Joel Henderson describes the recording process, “Luke had this crazy riff idea that scared the pants off us… we jammed on it in pre-production one weekend, and by the end of the day we had all the music finished but no lyrics or melody. For two months we wrote about four or five different choruses and more than fifteen different verses until we finally had something that was close to the mark.””I was reluctant about this song at first, it was so frantic that I didn’t know if we could pull it off live” reveals Joel, “but the riff was bouncing around inside my head for weeks, and I had so many lyric ideas that we just couldn’t put it aside.”
“It was Forresters’ cat that gave us the inspiration behind the opening line.” Singer Jodie Gibson laughs, “We were recording vocals at his home studio, we walked outside for a break, the cat would slink on over, almost close enough for a pat, and just as we reached out – it would pull its head back… classic cat tease, almost saying: “Is this what you wanted?” So that became the opening line of the song.”
The single comes along with a videoclip, filmed and edited by Joel Black from Tommirock, a music and film production company from Newcastle.
Lese Majesty‘s new single Age of Outrage is out this Friday September 21 in all good online stores and streaming outlets. For more information, go to www.lesemajesty.band.
