Boston Manor haben überraschend für den kommenden Freitag ihre neue EP „Desperate Times Desperate Pleasures“ angekündigt. Daraus präsentiert die Band aus UK außerdem den neuen Song „Desperate Pleasures“ samt Musikvideo.

It’s a song about generational change. I think the pandemic brought out some good in people but it also brought out a lot of nastiness. I saw a lot of appalling behaviour over the last 18 months & it made me feel quite depressed. As soon as people are placed under difficult circumstances they should come together, not start lashing out & taking everything for themselves. I guess this song is me hoping that things will get better.<span class="su-quote-cite">Henry Cox</span>

Ihr letztes Album „Glue“ (Albumreview) veröffentlichten Boston Manor vergangenes Jahr. Zuvor präsentierte der Fünfer die Singles „Algorithm“ und „Carbon Mono„, die ebenfalls auf der EP zu finden sind.

Zur EP sagt Frontmann Henry Cox: „We made this record just coming out of lockdown. We’d tried to write throughout 2020 but nothing was coming out; everyone’s mental health was suffering – it was just a really frustrating time. And then, as soon as January this year hit, just like that all these songs started flooding out of us. It was a really great opportunity to exorcise all of the frustration & pent up emotion of the previous year & really process those thoughts and feelings. It felt so refreshing doing an EP, with no expectations placed on us, we just went into a small studio in London & made really fun songs all throughout the year. It was such an enjoyable time, we hadn’t seen each other for 18 months & we’re used to spending nearly every day together. We really just fell back in love with being in a band.

Im Januar und Februar nächsten Jahres sind Boston Manor gemeinsam mit Neck Deep für insgesamt vier Shows in Deutschland zu Gast. Alle Tourdates findet Ihr weiter unten.
