Toronto’s Depleted Uranium are unleashing their next single Beta Particles.

Lyrically, this song is about being socially marginalized and society’s aim to attempt to “cure” those who are different. The band continues to explain: “It was born when we were starting to solidify in our songwriting and the process was fairly quick. The big transition in the middle was due to our 4-track recorder eating the tape of the first demo recording and when we listened back, it made the song. Once Blair (second guitar) joined, it was the song that began highlighting the simplified dual guitar harmonies. It’s a very focussed and aggressive song, both lyrically and musically. It sums up social marginalization and that the hot glow of anger upon the discovery of a wrong must be unleashed and justified, otherwise it will destroy you.”

Tackling real-life events like assimilation is something Depleted Uranium has been doing since they first got together over a decade ago. Their upcoming album Origins mainly consists of material from their early years, telling a history of who they are and where they come from.
