BIG SPECIAL share new cut 'BUTCHERS BIN' ahead of debut album 'POSTINDUSTRIAL HOMETOWN BLUES'


BIG SPECIAL, the rising stars of the electronic-punk scene, have once again captivated audiences with their latest offering, 'BUTCHER'S BIN'.





Following the success of their previous single 'DUST OFF / START AGAIN', which has been gaining traction on the BBC 6 Music playlist, 'BUTCHER'S BIN' further solidifies the band's place in the spotlight - the track is a testament to their evolving sound and artistic depth.


BUTCHER'S BIN' serves as a tantalising taste of what's to come from BIG SPECIAL's highly-anticipated debut album, 'POSTINDUSTRIAL HOMETOWN BLUES', set for release on May 10th via SO Recordings. With each release, the band proves themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, and 'BUTCHER'S BIN' is no exception.





Speaking on the track, Lead singer Joe Hicklin says"BUTCHER'S BIN is about class awareness and the realisation that the working classes are used as nothing but a commodity and set against each other at every turn, their existence trivialised and struggles denied; the off cuts tossed to feed the rabid hounds of neoliberalism. 


The song is about all of this from the perspective of declining mental health whilst trying to make a living as an artist and to break through in a time and place where a life In art is seen as a luxury granted to those of a higher social class or a fruitless pursuit for idealistic fools."
