Popes of Chillitown have released a brand new single ‘Crashmat’, taken from their forthcoming fourth studio album ‘Take A Picture'.
The latest single is written from the brink and the stance that "only you can save yourself from your own demise" but as a result "not wanting to ask for help because you don’t think you need it until it’s too late", explains vocalist Matt Conner.
Initially emerging from the UK ska/punk scene, Popes quickly established themselves as keen to break conventions and incorporate wider influences into their sound. Impossible to tie down and with enough energy to power a small city, their songs drag you through punk, two-tone, rock, hip-hop, reggae, drum & bass, dub, metal and more.
Renowned for their energetic live shows, the band have amassed a loyal following over the years. Since 2011, Popes have released three well-received albums and two EPs, amassing millions of streams. They've also toured relentlessly and have supported UK and US legends Fishbone, Voodoo Glow Skulls & The Slackers on the road.
The latest album ‘Take A Picture’, set for release on the 30th June via Criminal Records, is a genre-defying melée of energetic, fiercely catchy and immersive songs, bringing together all the diverse influences in the band. The eagerly anticipated fourth album is now available to pre-order on Signed CD, Digital and 12” Splatter Vinyl.
