DS Exclusive: The Restarts debut “Black Dog” from upcoming album, “Uprising”

Happy Friday, gang!

Dying Scene are stoked to bring you some brand new music from English hardcore vets The Restarts! The East London-based trio has got a brand new LP, Uprising, due out on Pirates Press Records on October 25th. BUT because they love you, the Pirates are bringing you the debut single, “Black Dog,” today!

Here’s what Kieran Plunkett, who mans bass and vocal duties for The Restarts, has to say about the song:

The song Black Dog touches on the awareness of mental health and how it has been stigmatised. We all know people (some quite near and dear to us) who struggle with depression or other forms of mental health. With a little understanding people (who suffer manic depression and bipolar disorder) can quite easily live productive lives. It is the stigmatisation and shame that worsens the illness and increases likelihood of suicide. We have lost friends over the years to suicide and conversely know others who manage to cope with it. So the more we understand it the better chance we have to fight this.”

The term “Black Dog” was coined by the English writer Samuel Johnson and later popularised by Winston Churchill. Here’s a video explaining that analogy.
