Luvvable duffers RSJ – those crazy hardcore Yorkists – who possess nerves of steel and can generate enough kinetic energy during a live show to set off all of the world’s long-range weapons sensors – have now announced a new single ‘Nice Day Out’ out October 28th.
This will support their album ‘Higgs Boson’ to be released on November 11.
‘Nice Day Out’ is a fervid, flickering gleam of a song. A frazzled bedazzler. After the searing start, a thumping breakdown introduces a skull-dumbing whack over-the-head (courtesy of Greg Parsons on drums) – with a super-heated kick-start on bass ( Matthew Gamblin.)
Then the intensity really starts. A foaming snarl of furious guitars – with agonized vocals from Dan Cook – pounces directly into your path like a fevered stampede of timber wolves. Things only stop when a rigid riff comes in (‘Guff’ Thomas with Dan Kentley) and the guys start using this euthanstic pow-pow rhythm to knock us into subconscious – yet sublime – oblivion. Things seem to go even heavier then – the head-banging begins – and all of the rawest energy bleeds freely.
These fellas squeeze out hard-balled talent from their every pore. Without a doubt, RSJ are overburdened with passion – from the whippety locks of their hairy fringes – to the sharpest points on their crusty talons. So get in the game and take this in. Because it can’t get any more exciting.
