Open City have dropped ‘Blitz Kids Stay Sick’, a new song from their forthcoming sophomore LP Hands in the Honey Jar. It’s the second offering from the album, following ‘Return Your Stolen Property Is Theft’. Check it out below.
“It started as a gut reaction to seeing bands double down on posing hard style in promotional photos, trying to look intimidating in a way that feels, to me at least, tiresome and forced,” guitarist and song lyricist Dan Yemin said of the new track in a statement. “Hardcore punk as a performance of male hostility is limited, tedious, and boring. [The song is] also a response to lyrics that squander opportunities to talk about serious shit.”
