Industrial band Panic Lift have completed their five EP release cycle with the new release, “Again”. “Again” features the lead single “What Happens Now?” and is accompanied by the downtempo “Timelines” along with two remixes from E.S.A. and Absynthe Of Faith.
For “What Happens Now?” Panic Lift lead singer, James Francis addresses the anxiety of watching the world around us in turmoil and the long-term effects it has on the human psyche. “In the 80’s we had the Cold War, in 90s we had Iraq, then September 11th, and now we’ve had COVID-19. I feel like each generation has been constantly on edge due to the world being in a constant state of upheaval, and it’s hard to ever imagine a time where we could be optimistic about the future.”
With the release of “Again” they complete the entire 21 song release cycle by unleashing the double CD titled “Split Pieces Stitched Together Again”. This album compiles all 21 songs into a long play album format. The CD is limited to 100 copies worldwide and can be ordered below.
Again is available on all major digital outlets including Bandcamp.
Here’s the video for “What Happens Now?”.
Panic Lift was formed in 2006 and has released music and toured consistently for almost two decades. Panic Lift has issued four full-length albums on Metropolis Records, and countless EPs, remixes, and collaborations. James Francis is accompanied by his longtime live band which consists of Dan Platt (keyboards), and Ben Tourkantonis and Cristian Carver both on drums.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
