Squid release new single 'Pamphlets'

Squid, the indie-punk darlings of Brighton, have revealed the final single to their upcoming debut LP Bright Green Field: the eight-minute space odyssey ‘Pamphlets’.

“It’s about all the rubbish right-wing propaganda you get through your front door,” the band explains in a press release. “It imagines a person with that as their only source of news being taken over by these pamphlets.”

Last time we heard from the band they had announced a socially distanced U.K. tour for May and June. Since then, the band have added a metric buttload of dates to the itinerary, including an American leg slated for November. These dates are supposed to be normal shows, i.e. sweaty and intimate and maskless, but depending on how the socially distanced dates go, they could easily turn into more precautionary-sensitive gigs.

With any luck, we’ll all be screaming and swaying to live music again soon, but there’s no reason to get ahead of ourselves just yet.

Check out the audio for ‘Pamphlets’, as well as the new Squid tour dates, down below. Bright Green Field is set for a May 7th release.
