Punks Newmeds have released their new single ‘Twenty Three’ which is out now and available to stream on all good DSPs. The band’s long-awaited debut EP ‘Nothing Is Heavier Than The Mind’ will be released on November 13th 2020 via Man Demolish Records.
A candid reflection on vocalist Nick Cobley’s personal struggles with Crohn’s Disease. And also a poignant comment on the link between the way we often unknowingly harm both ourselves and the planet through mindless consumption, the new single is another galloping slab of trademark punk’n’roll from the quartet.
“I’ve struggled with Crohn’s since I was 12 and at around the age of 23 I really struggled to come to terms with being ill,” explains Cobley. “Everything we eat, consume and do in this time and age can be harmful. I feel like it’s mainly about the poison we put in our bodies every day without realising. But also about the things we continue to do knowing they are harmful for ourselves and for the world.”
