New Audio: Northern England-based Punks Martha Release an Apocalyptic New Single

Slated for an April 5, 2019 release through Dirtnap RecordsLove Keeps Kicking, the forthcoming, third, full-length album from County Durham, England-based punk rock outfit Martha reportedly is partially a breakup record in which the album’s material goes through the familiar spectrum of emotions associated with heartbreak but while reminding the listener that what hurts now, won’t hurt forever — and that the hurt they experience will be a vital part of their life story, informing who they are, who they will become and how they treat others.

Centered around enormous and rousingly anthemic hooks, big power chords, a motorik-like groove and boy-girl harmonies, Love Keeps Kicking‘s latest single “The Void” is an urgent and frenzied bit of power pop tinged punk — but thematically, the song as the band explains in press notes is “about the cosmic darkness that’s engulfing the planet and all life on it. Impending ecological catastrophe, nuclear Armageddon, ancient gods awakening, suicidal sedation . . . We’re staring into the void . . .”

The band are currently in the middle of a lengthy UK and European Union tour. Check out the tour dates below.
