Umami 05:31
Been sick in my mouth Can't stand the taste of it Blue cheese and broccoli The umami mocking from deep in my gut And the Peking duck Best not to talk about it I'm still spitting feathers about the bill I gorged on butterflies and sparrow wings But the sweetest thing Is the swan that's still repeating Stuffed full of fifty pound notes Now I need a bigger boat I'll never skip dessert They swept up at my table Brushed crumbs from under my feet Broke bread and poured me drinks The stink of desperation hung uncomfortably As my waste broke free Best not to talk about it Because I'm still spitting feathers about the bill And there's movement downstairs Someone's cleaning up the mess But what bothers me Is who will clean me up When I soil my dress It's my Sunday best I'll never skip dessert Umami gets what umami wants That's the rules And umami tastes how umami tastes Don't be fooled Such unsavouriness has no place at my table

Refutenic 04:41
All Hail, all Hail to the new emperor He doesn't wear any clothes He kicks the stone He kicks the stone to see it travel It never reaches the end A month of games A month of games to mark the occasion I don't want to play Lays out his plans Lays out his plans To build a future And I refute it thus They threw me off They threw me off the tallest building To watch me fly They dropped me in They dropped me in the deepest well And I can't swim Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I I won't confess it Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I And I refute it thus Rip out my heart Rip out my heart and see it beating It beats to the drum Tear out my voice Tear out my voice and hear it screaming I won't confess it Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I I won't repeat it Screws my thumbs and stitch my limbs and I I will refute it thus I won't repeat it, won't confess it I will deny it, I won't accept it I won't repeat it, I won't confess it I will refute it thus

The Trial 04:53
Your prescription is ready Make your way to the waiting room Your feedback is valuable We'll swipe your loyalty card See you next time Enjoy your medicine Swallow it whole It will cure your contempt If you do what you’re told It was tested on animals With near matching DNA If you have a reaction Use the survey to have your say See you next time Enjoy your medicine Swallow it whole It will cure your contempt If you do what you’re told Your lungs might collapse But that's a one in a million chance It's a small price to pay I'm sure we all agree See you next time Enjoy your medicine Swallow it whole It will cure your contempt If you do what you’re told Expect mild inertia and bouts of nausea Lack of appetite and loss of libido Pangs of regret and visions of demons A new personality for each of the seasons A rattling cough and shooting chest pains Cauliflower ears and needles in the brain A rattling cough and shooting chest pains Cauliflower ears and needles in the brain Expect mild inertia and bouts of nausea Lack of appetite and loss of libido Pangs of regret, visions of demons A new personality for each of the seasons

You are the rogue nation And I'm the task force Lets start with embargo Undermine your beliefs Cut off air supply Blockade and crusade you You're the uncultured And I'm democracy Lets take a vote you'll see And you can buy our planes I might let you fly them Share the love by the payload Hands up Hand it over You think it's yours Because you live there You are the civil unrest And I'm the resolution Arm ourselves up to the eyeballs You can fly my flag I might let you burn it Share the love by the payload You're the uncultured And I'm democracy Lets take a vote you'll see And you can buy our planes I might let you fly them Share the love by the payload Hands up Hand it over You think it's yours Because you live there

Disco Nazi 06:21
Shake your haircuts Blow out your bulbs Keep rotating disco flashlight Your arena Take centre stage Your own every inch of that space go out and flaunt it It's your birth right Don't be denied Time for a rewind you may not want it but you need it The full reverse Keep repeating overheating Say you want more of the four to the floor You got it Harder and faster again and again It’s yours It's what you were born to do, what you were born to do The meaning of your existence on the dance floor Act like you mean it Don't phone it in Who the hell do you think you are? John Travolta? It's not the movies It's a war out there Don't dare slow it down Keep up momentum Dig up your totem Hop, skip and jump to the bumps in the night You feeling freaked yet We haven't peaked yet Keep returning Always yearning Shake your haircuts Blow out your bulbs Keep rotating disco flashlight Your arena Take centre stage Your own every inch of that space go out and flaunt it It's your birth right Don't be denied Time for a rewind you may not want it but you need it The full reverse Keep repeating overheating Say you want more of the four to the floor You got it Harder and faster again and again Its yours It's what you were born to do, what you were born to do The meaning of your existence on the dance floor

What became of the summer? A year passed through a sieve Broke my mind into component parts Debris scattered on my back lawn Senses drained of hurting In a needle thread Loop it back and start again Hum a sub bass note And dream of worlds far away Do whatever that is asked of you Duty bound by the blood you share Hold esteem, love and suffer Before you're ready the life is gone Senses drained of hurting In a needle thread Loop it back and start again Hum a sub bass note Fertilise the pockets of posies, poppies and roses Nests that have flown, legacy sewn On these shoulders encumbered Gravity shapes a crooked back Twists into a question mark Begs of who why we have to lose Senses drained of hurting It can't hurt you anymore Hum a sub bass note Fertilise the pockets of posies, poppies and roses Nests that have flown, legacy sewn

Nowbiter 05:45
You came You saw You conquered Felt admired Desired Not by least All and sundry Man or beast In and around Your home town You're like a minor celebrity You'll storm the cities Loan some real estate on a settee It's yours for the next hour You came You saw Felt ecstatic Yet distracted Elastic Stretched to breaking To prove that you're not faking Fell in love with your reflection Came across as Oedipal Won't you tell it like you see it? Wrestle with your inner child Tried to kill and fuck your parents Tore a chunk from the bad apple Prone to spouting psychobabble About the weight with which you're saddled Feeling unfulfilled, unfulfilled Your guts have spilled In and around Your home town You're like a minor celebrity You'll storm the cities Loan some real estate on a settee It's yours for the next hour Fell in love with your reflection Came across as Oedipal Won't you tell it like you see it Wrestle with your inner child Try try try tried to kill and fuck your parents Tore a chunk off the bad apple Prone to spouting psychobabble About the weight with which you're saddled Feeling unfulfilled, unfulfilled Your guts have spilled

Safety Words 04:20
Burning the mood Picture book style Make sure the noose isn't too tight French polishing What does this mean? So many rules To the obscene No I won't believe in Any system that is closed Now step on my throat Undo the noose So I can breathe But leave me hanging Gives me time to think No I won't believe in Any system that is closed Put your weight on my throat Put your weight on my throat No I won't believe in Any system that is closed Now step on my throat No I won't believe in Any system that is closed Now step on my throat

about

Leon Carter (Vocals, Guitar), Ric Booth (Guitar, Vocals), Giles Robinson (Bass) and Paul Collins (Drums) are the honourable Captains. "Sounds Mean" sees the band ramp up their brand of new-wave pop and suspense-filled rock’n’roll with shout-along choruses, fizzing dual-guitars and propulsive rhythmic skulduggery.

Just cos we live to give we'll also send on a full album download link the week prior to the release date, and give you a free instant download of lead single, 'Disco Nazi', when you Pre-order.
