So remember how we tweeted about ‘X‘ the new Hellions song they debuted for fans at UNIFY this year?

Well, they’ve finally released it for fans who weren’t present (or who can’t remember their set) to enjoy and it’s a fuckin banger. The track comes from their forthcoming album which is still yet to have a date. When we caught up with Dre and Aff backstage for our ‘Crashing Unify‘ Podcast, they said the album was all ready to go and they couldn’t say anything until the official announcement came about, stay tuned for that album announcement but until then guitarist Matt Gravolin explains the meaning behind the lyrics:
“60% of the human body consists of water. We are made of stardust atoms. These are remarkable things to contemplate – our very being is miraculous! But considering how few of our actions bear the salubrity of the water we’re composed of and how little light we’re projecting unto the world each day is enough to make one believe we are more of an aberrational race than a miraculous one.
“This is very much an escapist anthem, we’re embracing abandon and recklessness. We hope you enjoy it!”
