Bad Breeding are back with a brand new LP on June 21. Titled Exiled, it’s the British peace punk group’s fourth release in as many years and features 12 barn-burning politically-minded ragers. SPB is lucky to team up with Iron Lung Records (US) and One Little Indian Records (UK) to share a “Theatre of Work” off the LP.


The second longest track on the record, “Theatre of Work” is a noise-punk statement on working conditions in the UK.


 



“The noxious smog of neoliberalism has been most poisonous in the conditions of my working life, where capital dominates and the chance for genuine human flourishing has been shackled by the entrenched suffocation and manipulation of the labour market,” vocalist Christopher Odd explains of the track. “This song explores the theatre of being tied to agency work and zero-hours contracts, dogged by insecurity, stripped of confidence and laid bare to the laughable fatalism of being exploited by the very concepts you’re taught as necessary to your own survival.”


It features a guest appearance by Lewis Evans on saxophone.


Catch the band on a UK tour with Uniform or playing at Fluff Festival in the Czech Republic next month.
