Radio Silence drop crunching new tune, "The Hanging Tree"

Newcastle's Radio Silence have recently dropped their crunching new tune, "The Hanging Tree". The new release acts as their third ever release following on from their angular debut "Heads Will Roll" and the howling "Crank Bugs". 

Their sound sits perfectly between that of Nine Black Alps and Slaves, with crunching guitar lines and bass hooks mixed in with some psychedelic and 80's influenced synths buried underneath it.

I can't wait for more from this emerging Newcastle based act!

From the get-go the track grabs you by the kneck and takes you on a thrilling ride down a muddy backroad, it's a fast-paced track from start to finish with only small breaks from the psych-punk glory that is Radio Silence's latest work.

Bassist Rob says - "Lines like 'It’s 2 for 1, give everybody a loaded gun' hint at our political motivation and the government's poor way of dealing with the pandemic (for example the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme, putting profit over people and masking it with 2 for 1 deals). We wanted to allude to it without it being too in your face and allow people to interpret it in their own way."

"The Hanging Tree" is one of the finest punk tracks to come out of the North East in a long time and signifies an era of disgust with the current climate - a massive nod towards the mishandling of covid in the UK. 

Sometimes when things are bad punk comes in to save the day and helps you get the anger out, and that's what we have here. Radio Silence might be currently unknown to the general public, but angsty tunes such as this will easily push them into the public consciousness.
