Brisbane’s Future Haunts drop anthemic new single ‘Fall In Line.A sonic punch-back against “draconian lockout laws”, the track arrives ahead of the Future Haunts’ BIGSOUND performances next month.
Self-recorded at Plutonium Studios and mixed by Miro Mackie (St. Vincent, DZ Deathrays, Hatchie), in Ben Speight’s words, “‘Fall In Line’ was written around the time lockout laws were being introduced in Sydney and Brisbane. The live music community in Brisbane has worked extremely hard to develop one of the best places to go and engage with artists, and there really was a lot of uncertainty what consequences this would have on live music and the broader nightlife scene.
“The song’s a bit of a nod to all those who work hard to create and nurture a positive culture and to keep pushing on no matter what. The message behind the song is still just as relevant today, in the context of other knee-jerk decisions made to placate a few very loud voices in very high places”, he says
