Australian 4 piece HELLIONS have released their long-awaited, brand new single “X (Mwah)” today, Feb 6th 2018, through UNFD Records. Alongside the unveiling of “X (Mwah)”, the band have also announced they will be playing a very special hometown launch show at The Lansdowne in Sydney on Friday March 9.
The first piece of new music from the quartet since the release of their critically-acclaimed theatrical masterpiece Opera Oblivia, “X” is a defeatist ode to recklessness delivered via an ever-colourful riot of punk rock joy. The jam was first revealed in front of a frenzied capacity crowd at UNIFY 18 in what Australian Guitar Magazine called “a glorious haze of liveliness and grandeur”. “X” had its first official play on Triple j’s Good Nights last night and the video can be viewed below.
HELLIONS guitarist/vocalist Matt Gravolin explains: “60% of the human body consists of water. We are made of stardust atoms. These are remarkable things to contemplate – our very being is miraculous! But considering how few of our actions bear the salubrity of the water we’re composed of and how little light we’re projecting unto the world each day is enough to make one believe we are more of an aberrational race than a miraculous one. This is very much an escapist anthem, we’re embracing abandon and recklessness. We hope you enjoy it!”
