Chicago punks Meat Wave have shared a new track, ’10k’, taken from their upcoming album Malign Hex – out October 14 on Big Scary Monsters. It follows previous cuts ‘Honest Living’, ‘Ridiculous Car’, and ‘What Would You Like Me To Do’. Listen to it below.
“’10k’ is about being alive for 10,000 days, which is around your 28th birthday,” the band’s Chris Sutter explained in a statement. “Feels like a long time – but is it? You feel like you know so much about life and navigating through it – but do you? Nah, not really. The title of the record directly relates to ’10k’.
“A malign hex pertains to your lineage,” Sutter added. “It’s something that is pertinent to only you, it’s handed down to you, or was raised in you. In that way, and pertaining to the record as a whole, I’d like to think it’s a human, universal feeling.”
