Sharptooth Premieres New Song "No Sanctuary" From Upcoming New Album "Clever Girl"

“No Sanctuary” is the latest track to arrive from Sharptooth‘s new album, “Clever Girl“, out October 27th on Pure Noise. Says vocalist Lauren Kashan of the song:

"This song is about us as LGBTQIA people telling the rest of society how you can and cannot talk to us, and the insidious ways that language shapes the way people interact with and treat each other. The lyric “every time that you say “f*ggot” is a bullet through my head” directly illustrates how hateful slurs and rhetoric lend credence to homophobic views, and negatively impacts the way the world treats people like me."

Adds Kashan:

"It’s a slur that’s been used against me personally, and against all of the members of this band, queer and straight alike, and it feeds directly into a cycle of hate that has the potential to manifest as violence against us, and other members of the LGBTQIA community. People say “sticks and stones will break my bones”, but words can and do directly impact our culture and the ways that members of different groups are treated.

We can ALL work together to be more mindful of the way we communicate with each other so as to create a safer world for all people."
