Belfast, Ireland punk trio Empty Lungs release new video for lead single “Don’t Get It”.
The song is off the band’s upcoming EP of the same name, out March 10.
“A fast-paced punk track… Be warned: You WILL get this stuck in your head after one listen.” – Alternative Press
“A powerful surge of what happens when a band combines pop anthems with a holdfast punk attitude. Their hooks are woven into a gritty atmosphere, destructive in energy but uniquely beautiful in essence.” – NewNoise
The band’s thoughts on the video:
“The concept is based around the feeling of alienation. We thought nothing says that anymore than being at a party surrounded by arseholes. In reality everyone had a great time making this, we sat around drinking beers all day while shooting and then played a class show in the kitchen! I’m pretty sure no-one felt alienated…”
Don’t Get It was recorded by long time friend Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar, Oppenheimer) at Start Together Studios, Belfast. The first 2 tracks were mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F (Said The Whale, Wintersleep) and the 3rd by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung).
Speaking on the release and upcoming tour dates, vocalist/guitarist Kev Jones said, “‘Don’t Get It’ is by far the best 3 songs we’ve ever written and we’re so excited to get it out. We’re over the moon to be working with Hidden Pony Records. We’re super excited to be a part of the family. Above all else, we love to play shows and we can’t wait to get sweaty and rowdy on our upcoming UK tour.”
