Halshug: Kæmper Imod

Copenhagen's hardcore stalwarts, Halshug will be coming up with their third studio full length, Drøm, scheduled for release through Southern Lord on July 19th, 2019. Following Fantasi from a last May, the band reveal the dynamic new single and the LP's opening cut, Kæmper Imod, a heavy and dark hardcore punk piece alive with forcefulness and immediacy.

Guitarist Mathias Schønberg comments on the new song: "Kæmper Imod is a song about losing. The title translates to ‘resisting’ or ‘fighting back’ but the lyrics are defeatist as hell. Back when crust-punk was big there was often a sense of resist-to-exist kind of encouragement in the music – there is none of that in this one. This song is about being tied down and not having any agency. It’s about failing to resist. Fun fact though: I’m not sure if anyone can tell, but the guitar part was heavily inspired by a Smashing Pumpkins song."
