Inspired by a painting in the Imperial War Museum, The Blinders have shared their new single and video, “Mule Track”, the latest to be taken from their upcoming album Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath, out on 17th July via Modern Sky UK.

A brooding blend of driving guitars and distorted vocals, the track weaves between explosive crescendos of volatile intensity and woozy passages which plunge into a dark and ethereal ambience, before igniting once again with blistering intent.

The darkly surreal video matches the raw, frenetic energy of the song perfectly.

The Blinders announced their new album, “Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath”, A dark blues-waltz underpinned by propulsive bass and evocatively prosaic lyricism, the track straddles the lines between ode and lament while addressing life’s confusing crossroads. The track is accompanied by an arresting video, which cuts between the band performing and wandering the atmospherically bleak landscape.

The Album will be the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album, “Columbia”, released in 2018, the album explores existential despair, mental health and society’s ills in a time of planetary crisis, and is both a riposte to, and commentary on, the rise of populist ideology. Delivering a blistering collection of powerful tracks, “Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath” is imbued with the visceral energy of IDLES, the twisted melodies of solo-era Lennon and the darkness of the Bad Seeds.

In the shadow of Brexit and the climate crisis, The Blinders return with their unique brand of outspoken anthemicism and a sensational album to rouse awareness and inject vital energy into a bleak 2020. Combined with their blistering live energy, get ready for The Blinders to accelerate furiously into the limelight.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we have had to take the decision to postpone the album release date. ‘Fantasies of a Stay at Home Psychopath’ will now be released on July 17th.

The global pandemic has meant that, logistically, we cannot currently guarantee the release of the album in May. We also hope that the album will now be released at a time when it can fully be enjoyed and celebrated by everyone in the way we all hoped.

The Blinders unleash their brand new track, ‘Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun’), lifted from their upcoming full-length ‘Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath’, which is now scheduled to be released on July 17th via Modern Sky UK.

The fiery anthem of defiance addresses the ascendance of the likes of Donald Trump, who are out to destroy the world for profit, and the guilt of the complicit societies that vote for them.
“’Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun)’ is a song that was written as a consequence of the USA’s separation policy and the resulting images of children being placed in cages separate from their families,” the trio comment.
“It is perhaps one of the more literal songs we’ve ever produced where we allowed ourselves to take the images directly from the evening news and put them straight into the song. It is, however, not just an expression of anger at the policy, the complete collapse in morality that it represents or the administration that implemented it, but is also meant to spark a question of personal responsibility – questioning whether we can do more as individuals to prevent such abuses of power and humanity.”
