Guitarist/vocalist Andrew Clinkman said of the new song in a statement:
I wrote the lyrics for ‘Entropy Transfer Partners’ in fall 2019, and at that time wanted to express an overwhelming frustration that I felt and shared with many people in my life around the precarity of carving out a life, paying rent and engaging with the infinite hellscape of our healthcare system to stay alive. I also wanted to envision a world where we can find our collective power and fight back to win a less cruel future. I didn’t know a pandemic would worsen all of these conditions many times over, but I still believe the way forward is solidarity. We won’t work to create the shit you monetize, to run our lives!
Two, which will follow the band’s 2019 debut Auto-Portrait, is due out September 3 via Born Yesterday Records.
