While gearing up for the release of their debut album Bewilderbeast, NorCal alternative hardcore act The Know Nothings have teamed up with The Noise to premiere their brand new, face-melting single, “Eleanor Aberbnathy.”
Drawing similarities to hardcore heroes Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Bled, “Eleanor Aberbnathy” is a brand off in-your-face, fast-paced wreckage that’s an absolute infectious and rowdy refreshment to the hardcore community.
When asked about the idea behind their new hard-hitting single – which, yes, is named after the Crazy Cat Lady from The Simpsons – frontman Matt Baker explained that the song is much more serious than the title may lead people to believe.
“Growing up I had the divide religion can create thrown back at me pretty hard,” Baker told us. “Once I was older, I was able to see that divide on a even grander and scarier scale. The song deals with the frustration I feel towards religion and in the song I kinda plead at one point for us to come together. Like, ‘hey even though we believe in different things, can we meet in the middle somewhere? Because the world’s is going to shit.’ I let it end on a very honest note, I don’t expect change to come, I don’t think we’re building better bridges to each other and it breaks my heart.”
That said, be sure to check out the new single below. For more info on The Know Nothings and their upcoming album which hits stores May 15, head to their Facebook page here.
