If Something's Gonna Kill Me digital single and video

The latest digital single If Something’s Gonna Kill Me (It Might As Well Be Love) is now available to stream or download here. Taken from the band’s forthcoming studio album Dark Matters, which is released on 10th September, the track is a lyrical tribute to dear departed band member Dave Greenfield whilst, musically, it is a nod to the electro-pop of bands such as Kraftwerk. As with the And If You Should See Dave… digital single, anyone who has pre-ordered Dark Matters from The Stranglers official store will receive an email with a link for a complimentary download of If Something’s Gonna Kill Me. To accompany the release, an stunning, apocalyptic promo video was made by US filmmaker Daniel Oramas with a storyboard which interpreted the song’s lyrics in a totally different way. Coupled with the track, it makes for emotional viewing. We hope you like it…

Dark Matters Track Chat #3

In the latest installment of Track Chat, JJ, Baz and Louie chat about the magnum opus that is White Stallion, which was one of the last tracks they worked on with Dave. Lyrically, it concentrates on the diminishing influence of the West, and especially America, on the world. At the band’s behest, Louie went to town on the track’s production making it both ‘epic and massive’ sonically. Again, White Stallion illustrates the diversity on Dark Matters.
