SONG PREMIERE: Shvpes – “Calloused Hands”

Birmingham, UK metal band Shvpes have premiered their new song recently. You can check out the stream for their song “Calloused Hands” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Greater Than which is due out on November 9th via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.

Vocalist Griffin Dickinson commented:

This is the first song we wrote together after coming back from our first European tour. We’d been out for 6 weeks, experiencing something we’d always dreamed of… As soon as we got back, as with most tours, reality hits and you’re sucked back into the ‘real world’ that pressures you to go and get a ‘real job’ I.e. doing something you probably don’t care about, for some narcissistic company that equally doesn’t care about you. This song was all about reminding myself why I don’t want to be a part of that. With lyrics like “capitalise; cannibalise” & “paralysed by your next fix” it’s exploring the futility of the paper chase.
