Tampa noise-infused hardcore quartet Meatwound (Combatwoundedveteran, Headless Dogs) have premiered their new track “Reproductive Blues” via Decibel. The song is off of their upcoming sophomore full-length, Largo, which is the follow-up 2015’s Addio and was recorded by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound.
Vocalist Daniel Shook comments on the track’s lyrics:
“Fundamentalists and politicians don’t like abortions. They also don’t like birth control or sex education. If you honestly want to stop abortions, those things are proven to reduce abortions more effectively than prayer or highway billboards. It’s almost like they want to keep the world stepping over endless unwanted babies. Round about twenty-three years ago, Initial State made an LP and the song ‘Feast’ has stuck with me ever since. The first line: ‘You would bring another into the vile machine/One more mouth among the billions to hang agape in need’… I think it was the first song I heard that was specifically about overpopulation.”
