Set for release on December 10 via California-based Mourning Sun Records, you can already check it out right below. The material was co-produced and recorded with Alex Posell, former Black Flamingo bandmate, who also contributes drums and percussion. The single was mixed and mastered by Robert Duncan IV at Mourning Sun Records in Los Angeles.

“‘A Cold War City’ is an exploration of human memory and its fickle nature. We rewrite details of past experience over and over until eventually a fiction replaces our recollection. We are the authors of our own memoirs which are under constant revision,” says AMMO about the track.

Here’s the track.


Earlier this year, AMMO released the single “Rose + Crown” with an accompanying video for the title track, directed by AMMO and co-filmed by Christopher Slater. B-side “Total Recall” pays tribute to Adrian Borland of influential 1980s UK band The Sound. Both videos can be watched below.

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.
