Entitled There Are Too Many of Us, this new track speaks of the ills of today’s society: overpopulation, religious fanaticism, conformity, sheeple, and general co-dependence. “There are too many of us / In tiny houses, here and there / Just passing out somewhere / But you don’t care / There are too many of us / It’s plain to see / We all believe in praying / For our immortality.”

It may be rather dark, but it speaks the truth. Listen to the track below.

The Magic Whip launches on April 27, but you can pre-order it now on iTunes to get the singles There Are Too Many of Us and Go Out instantly.
