Chicago punk trio Meat Wave are back in full force with a new album in tow and a brand new single paving the way.
“Run You Out” is characteristically full throttle. In its short two minute duration the track tears itself apart in search of escape. Brazen refrains are taken on an adrenalin-fuelled trip, and drumbeats pound with a fraught intensity.
“It came out of some grand realizations about myself, and how some reflection can be really ugly – and necessary,” Chris Sutter told CLRVYNT. “Confronting, questioning how I had handled things, my desire to escape from a situation.”
“It’s crazy to look back on that time, even though it wasn’t that long ago, and to feel removed or aged or different,” he continues. “Some of the past just kind of stings, and I think that’s what getting older is: experiencing life in its madness, looking back on it. Writing that song was like building blocks. Just kept adding around the riff in the chorus. That was the impetus to that song.”
Recorded with Steve Albini, the follow up to 2015’s Delusion Moon – The Incessant – is released next month. Meat Wave will tour across Europe in April.
