‘Condition’ is released on March 10. It’s louder and more abrasive than their debut, 2015’s ‘Dying’, but also a real progression. It sounds huge and adds a genuinely innovative and confrontational edge. “On this album we became even less interested in actually playing guitar,” explains frontman Joe Hatt, “which meant that we got more into experimenting with the sounds we could get out of them when brutalising them and letting the feedback do the talking.”
