The heavy new track is a slow burner with chugging stoner-rock-inspired riffs and Simon Neil’s throat-shredding howls.
“‘Moi?’ is about people who just no matter what you talk about — and I’m guilty of this at points – will never ever see the truth, even if you dangle it in front of them,” says about the song. “Ignorance can feel like a badge of honour these days, with people being stubborn and not being willing to enlighten themselves. I cannot believe we’ve got to the stage where that’s to be cherished.”
