Oh to be / From the land of the free
Brand new single; ‘Brave New World’

The dystopian anthem of the Idiot King rises to the surface of the murk-filled-mire. Take the song for what it is; an ugly, brown portrayal of the modern day ‘free world’, and the inevitable ‘helter skelter’ we would face, so long as things continued this way.
“You won’t find us in it, because we feel like we don’t need to be.The film focuses on the cult leaders of mindless nations, mass slaughter and exploitation, and the desolation of the world… not the mental self-fornication of three boys in a band.” (The Blinders)
Watch them build it / from the floor
Watch them take it / from the poor
Watch them change / a dozen laws
And watch them snatch it / from us all
New Tours and Festival Appearances announced including This Feeling alive tour (October) and the Healing Brexit Towns Experiment‘ tour (September, October) with CABBAGE and special guests.
Punkadelic ring leaders, The Blinders are widely regarded as Britain’s most switched on rock band. Articulate, politicised and theatric with an electricity charged connection live on stage. The songs – anthemic polemic – are as huge as their potential. ‘Hear the sound / of dystopian cries’
The band’s Summer 2017 single, ‘Brave New World’, is the sound of true independence on the fourth of July and available from all main digital distributors to download from Friday 7th July. The feedback since the first BBC 6 Music play by Chris Hawkins on Monday morning and first Radio X play by John Kennedy in the evening is incredible. Watch The Blinders EXPLODE. This is rock joy. Enjoy.
