UK post-hardcore band Radio Alcatraz have released a new song.
“Holiday In A Police State” is taken from the band’s forthcoming studio album, It’s All Coming Up Roses, scheduled for release on the 8th of December via Banquet Records.
Says singer Simon Griffiths: “Holiday In A Police State is an Orwellian cautionary tale that asks exactly what price we pay for the apparent freedom we enjoy in the west.”
“It’s easy to turn a blind eye to the increasingly intrusive and insidious presence of our ‘protectors’, because to do otherwise would compromise the lifestyle we’ve become so accustomed to. But by not discussing this inconvenient truth we choose to sit in silence and turn the other cheek as more and more steps are taken under our very noses to compromise our privacy and civil liberties.”
