April 22 — Veteran punk rock band Pulley is keeping itself busy this year.
The band announced Friday, it is scheduled to release its latest album (its sixth), Golden Life, next month. In anticipation of the record’s release, the band premiered the album’s lead single and its companion lyric video Thursday. The album is scheduled for release May 13 through SBAM Records.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Golden Life’ is an infectious guitar-driven punk composition. The subtle vocal harmonies alongside the catchy guitar riffs, solid time keeping and low end from the bass line makes the song fully engaging and entertaining.
Frontman Scott Radinsky talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.
“Golden life; Observing a generation of kids who have seemingly been robbed of an experience,” he said. “Life without ease of access to good, and/or bad. Much of what they have seen in the world has been negative, unimaginable terrorist acts, war and violence, a division of people. In regards to music, our generation really had to earn it if we wanted to get a proper listen or visual. Technology, although having its good aspects, has removed an experience that offered a deeper appreciation of life.”
The lyric video for ‘Golden Life’ is a simple presentation. It features the song’s lyrics over images, such as a $5 bill, Donald Trump blindfolded, and silhouettes of people over stock market figures.
In other news, Pulley recently announced an extensive tour of Europe and Canada in support of its new album. The tour’s European leg is scheduled to launch May 18 in Valencia, Spain and to run through May 29 in Mannheim, Germany. The Canadian leg is scheduled to launch June 1 and to run through Aug. 28 in Edmonton, AB.
