Recent JUNO Awards nominees Palaye Royale have just released an animated video for ‘Little Bastards’, the new single and opening track from their upcoming LP, ‘The Bastards’.
The story board for the video is based on the band’s upcoming graphic novel, which has been written and drawn by drummer Emerson Barrett and XO Billie.
Speaking on the new song and video, guitarist Sebastian Danzig had this to say.
“‘Little Bastards’ is the opening track from our third album, ‘The Bastards’. Musically we show the direction of the album all in a single track. The vulnerability, the truth and the aggression all wrapped together in a three and a half minute track which will set the listener up for what is too come for the next 14 tracks and what corners we will touch.
Lyrically it trails from our latest release ‘Lonely’ but displaying the frustration and anger towards individuals that are meant to be friends.
Visually we wanted to display our current state which is complete isolation from the world; trapped inside a house but yet the toxic society has found its way inside. We have to “band” together to keep our circle of trust and honesty tight.”
You can check out the video for ‘Little Bastards’ below.
The full-length effort will be released on May 29th 2020 through Sumerian Records.
