Following on from the release of last month’s ‘Dress The Wounds’ and ‘Imperium of Waste’, Strike Anywhere have now released ‘Frontier Glitch’. Taken from their upcoming EP, Nightmares of the West, it’s one of the first new tracks in over a decade.
About it, vocalist Thomas Barnett says, “’Frontier Glitch’ is where the title for this record was found, the shortest and most ferocious of the songs on the record. It’s about the lifelong project of trying to de-couple yourself from the runaway train of imperialism, exceptionalism, and all the mass psychosis that comes with dishonest histories, fake victories and the death cult of nationalism. It’s a song about peace and the only way to get it is to find our power to shut down the nations, the economies on our backs and the borders across our bodies. It’s for a general strike in the face of the state monopoly on violence, to get free from the shadows of monuments to history’s criminals, and to finally choose a loving and honest landscape for our future. Let the ship burn, we’re the ocean – in every shade in every colour.”
