Beggar Uploads New Song

As the COVID-19 virus sweeps fear across the globe, Beggar are preparing to emerge from the anarchic underground of London, lobbing their brooding new single 'Blood Moon' in frustration into the faces of a panicked populace.

And the narrative of the single couldn't be more timely, focusing on hyper-charged consumption and a rampant, morbid thirst for the new. It considers the human with its augmented online identity as something like a virus that subsumes host after host in an unstoppable and unaccountable spree of osmosis and cannibalism.

Originally premiered via Invisible Oranges, you can listen to their new single "Blood Moon" below. More...

Today the band have released standalone track and video "Nine Atmospheres" which showcases the band at their most raw and misanthropic point. Recorded with Wayne Adams (responsible for recent works by Green Lung, 11Paranoias and Terminal Cheesecake) at Bear Bites Horse, London and mastered by the master of noise himself, James Plotkin (Sunn O))), ISIS, Pelican and Earth), the track comes ahead of their debut album Compelled To Repeat which is scheduled for release in April 2020 via APF Records.

Commenting on the track vocalist Charlie Davis says: "The track 'Nine Atmospheres' is about pressure, anxiety, the corporate world and the environment.

However, in a larger way, it’s also about the moments in which you can see straight through that world to something a bit older and darker (‘liquid magma lakes’, blistering lava’, etc.) The title ‘Nine Atmospheres’ refers to the amount of pressure measured in atmospheres that the human body can withstand underwater before it begins to rupture (like the track begins to rupture towards the end)."
