Renowned for their biographical tales of anguish, LA prog/synth band, The Longing, unexpectedly turn their torturous tales inside-out as they choose the first single from their new deluxe album as an exposing spotlight on the horrors of the growing gun crime epidemic. Released on 24 August, ‘Monsters’ is the prelude to The Longing’s new album, ‘Tales of Torment Deluxe’ (out on 20 July).
‘Monsters’ is the anthemic mantra of every man, woman and child affected personally by gun crime. Engulfed by the unfurling horrors of TV screens which are broadcasting the tragedy of uncontrolled shooters rampaging throughout schools and public buildings in the US, founding member and lyricist of The Longing, Laura Bradley, seized the pen as her sword and began to fight back in the only way she knows how; through song. A rare side-step from the normal biographical tales that fans have come to expect from Laura Bradley.
With previous singles scooping countless radio airplay in the UK and 18 countries worldwide, plus UK Record of the Week, as well as numerous TV and movie slots including MTV, The Cannes Film Festival, a score for William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and a track from their current album chosen as the anthem for International Women’s Day 2017; The Longing’s vibrant talent transcends beyond prog/rock, tempting its haunting way into the mainstream.
Bold, brash and brandishing a sword at pointless shooters, ‘Monsters’ is The Longing’s most dramatic and poignant track to date.
The single, ‘Monsters’ is released on Filthy Princess Records on 24 August
