UK punks Pacer have announced a new album to be called Mechanical that will be released on November 17th through Everything Sucks Music. To celebrate this announcement, the band is streaming the title track from the upcoming album.
You can check out the song and see what vocalist Mark Pavey has to say about the song below.
Pacer last released Making Plans in July 2012
Vocalist Mark Pavey explains that it’s “about how an intense focus can sometimes leave you without a wider perspective; how when you suddenly have no plans, you can feel broken. Whilst (last album) Making Plans was written in a few periods of intense writing, Mechanical took shape at a slower pace being both more complex musically and more introspective in its subject matter. As it reached its completion, we booked some time to record the album in a similar manner to how we recorded Making Plans – over two days, playing mostly live together as a group in order to give the album the frenetic energy we wanted.”
“Making Plans was about a focus, about deciding on a goal and moving towards it at a great speed to achieve it.” Continues Pavey. “Mechanical is a counter to that. It’s about what happens after you reach a goal that you have focused on so strongly and working out what to do when you are suddenly left feeling aimless and adrift.”
