Bristol, UK-based band RXPTRS — who blend rock, metal, punk, and hardcore with a seamlessness that is enviable, creating something that is unique that seethes with boundless energy — have just shared the video for Demons in My Headphones.
“Politics, social media, false information, and strong opinions. Demons in My Headphones really came at a point where we were nearly done with everything we were seeing and hearing online,” the band explains. “It got to a point where we wanted to drink to drown out the voices on our screens. We live in dangerous times, with false information and opinions being printed like news on social media. Life online feels like tip-toeing through a minefield. Both sides of the coin have been tainted with shady tactics, loud opinions, and mistruths. The song is about not knowing who to trust, the confusion of cancel culture and landing in a mindset that sees the world through a farcical lens.”
The song will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, due out this summer. Stay tuned for more details.
