Alien Weaponry has returned and they've brought some seriously groovy riffs with them. The band is now streaming their new single "Tangaroa" off the album of the same name due out September 17. Lyrically, the single deals with personal struggle and growth, as well as the pressing theme of climate change and illegal fishing practices.
"We decided to write this song about how the ocean is being suffocated by humans and their waste," said vocalist and guitarist Lewis de Jong. "The ocean is an important part of my life, and it's important to protect it."
"'Tangaroa' is a heavy and angry message about how we are destroying the ocean with pollution and overfishing," said drummer The video ties in with this message, with us drowning in plastic conveying the struggle of ocean life."
