Locked In A Vacancy are challenging anger at the religious corruption continually pervading our society in their new single “…Of Church And State.”
The song is from the band’s forthcoming EP, …Before The Dawn. The video that accompanies it was filmed and edited by Brett Miller, and it makes some powerful points. Vocalist Dyami Bryant said the song in question, as you might have figured out from its title, deals with the shitshow that’s current American politics.
“It’s not news to anyone who’s been paying attention to U.S. politics in recent years that a certain segment of our elected officials have taken to eroding the separation of church and state—one of the basic tenets this country was founded on. This song is a rallying cry against that. To be perfectly clear: This is not an anti-religion song or an anti-Christianity song, but rather a call-out to politicians who invoke those systems as a means to advance their personal agendas—typically rooted in their own biases of misogyny, racism, and homophobia.”
Speaking about the music video itself, guitarist Nelson Blake said it’s been a hot minute since the band last put out such a clip.
“It’s our first music video in almost two decades and it was an absolute blast to bring it together and show our death metal influences.”
The song offers up an example of how heavy the band will get on their EP, while also taking on a serious issue. We can’t wait to see what else the record will have in store.
…Before The Dawn was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Len Carmichael at Landmine Studios, Ewing, NJ.
You can also catch the band live with Cipher and Endwell at The Meadows in Brooklyn on February 2. Stay tuned for more show and music announcements this year.
