itoldyouiwouldeatyou will release their debut album ‘Oh Dearism’ on 16th November, via Alcopop! Records and Failure By Design.
It’s accompanied by a handful of live shows, including Brighton (20th September), Plymouth (13th October), Manchester (17th November) and London (18th), and preceded by a video for lead single ‘Gold Rush'.
Vocalist Joey Ashworth says: “Star Wars was right. Fear does lead to anger, and I am terrified. I’m ready to get angry though. I’m tired of fear and I’m ready for the next step. I desperately want my generation to answer the call. We have to answer, because it’s almost too late. We have to choose radical love and violence because we are running out of options.
“This song is about not wanting to feel stuck in my body anymore, stuck in cycles of self harm. It’s about choosing to fight something other than myself. The marginalised people in your life are asking you to fight with them. Join them. Help. It is worth the pain for those you love. Breath in. Breath out. We can do it. The world might be ending but I’d rather be side to side with those who need my support than scared in the corner. Don’t leave me hanging.”
