Powerful London-based punk outfit REAL AUTHORITY have released a third track ‘DEPRESSION ISSUES’ from their upcoming debut EP ‘TRUE MOTION’.
Vocalist John James Davies says of the track, “Lyrically, it’s very bluntly about depression. I’m not trying to make a grand statement about it, just highlighting how dark and intense it can feel when you’re at your lowest. It was a good release for me to write the song as I hadn’t felt like I’d been able to properly talk about it in a song before.”
Guitarist Johann Saul adds, “This is probably the heaviest track in our set. You’ve got Slayer-esque cymbal grabs, twisted spoken word passages, creepy organ parts, down tuned bendy riffs, and a brutal half time breakdown. A real journey through the fiery riffs of hell!”
‘Depression Issues’ is taken from the band’s debut EP ‘TRUE MOTION’ which is out on 26 July through their own Chapter One Records. REAL AUTHORITY teamed up with Daly George at The Ranch Production House (Milk Teeth, Creeper, Employed To Serve) to record their first tracks and the tracks were then mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Twitching Tongues, Drug Church, Stranger Things (OST)). The 5-track collection showcases southern-inspired grooves, fast-paced blistering punk, and unashamedly metalicised riffs.
