Fiercely independent Hull outfit LIFE are back with the first single to be taken from their highly anticipated second LP. ‘Moral Fibre’ is an anthemic and frenetic slice of art-punk laced with sardonic and irreverent lyrics. Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band hone in on a bigger and more focused sound.

Speaking about the single, frontman Mez Green says, “Moral Fibre is a stinging and frenzied shut up and step aside – a tongue in cheek reflection on the music industry, that beige scene, those that pimp poverty from Mummy’s detached house, those that trade in fair-trade cocaine and those that preach behind their keyboard. I’m taking the piss, but I’m deadly serious!”

In April, LIFE embark on a sold out two-week European tour as main support for IDLES and will also play one of three sold-out London shows at the Electric Ballroom. The band are also set to play numerous festivals across the UK & Europe including Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Pukkelpop (BE), Best Kept Secret (NL), Pahoda (SK), Rock The People (CZ) and more to be announced.

‘Moral Fibre’ will be released via the band’s own label ‘Afghan Moon’ on 29th March 2019 and will also see them partner for the first time with PIAS.
