Unlike previously released singles “Black Lungs” and “Animals,” “Dead Butterflies” is a purely anthemic rock song that finds the band expanding their sound with gentle strings and melodic synth. The song has a grandiose feel in a similar vein to Muse, but with a harder edge.
The accompanying music video, directed by Tom Welsh & Taylor Fawcett, was filmed during the band’s livestream show at the Royal Albert Hall in London in November last year.

Talking about the new album with NME, drummer Dan Searle explained the message behind the upcoming album.
“This album was me looking at our inability to change to a way of life that would sustain the human race and save the planet. I wanted to look in the mirror and ask ourselves the question of what are we going to do,” the musician continued, “as opposed to trying to point the finger at politicians. Change has to start on a personal level. The world has developed a culture of wanting someone else to deal with it, when we need to take our own responsibility. It has to start there.”
