Greys share “Fresh Hell”

More new music coming your way! Greys just premiered their track “Fresh Hell” via Bandcamp, boasting a new sound and a look at some of the bands who helped to influence it.

Singer Shehzaad Jiwani says of the track, “I wrote the lyrics for this song after hearing about Jian Ghomeshi’s acquittal, and of Rob Ford’s death. There seemed to be a baffling amount of support and sympathy for these public figures who were, for lack of a better term, total pieces of shit. Ghomeshi’s verdict only seemed to reinforce institutional sexism and rape culture, while Ford receiving sort of a hero’s funeral completely ignored all of the ways he affected my city and most of its residents by being a racist, homophobic misogynist. I imagined this Orwellian future where anyone who disagreed with the public opinion was violently assimilated, which I think matches the cyberpunk vibe of the song. Get me off this planet.”

Greys are hitting the road this fall. More info a tickets here.
