Fans can expect to hear new tracks from the upcoming LP, including the recently released single, Change, which delves into the lingering effects of patriarchal violence and the frustration with the slow progress of social change.

“Change is about how to keep surviving and fighting even when it feels like we’re going backwards,” says Cable Ties’ guitarist and lead vocalist Jenny McKechnie.

“It contrasts the traumatisation of victim/survivors by the so-called justice system with the solidarity and hope I have found talking to mothers, friends and strangers, who have connected with the songs I’ve screamed into the abyss.”

“The lyrics for Change reflect a collection of experiences I’ve had over the last decade, particularly relating to being a woman who plays loud angry, feminist music,” Jenny adds.

“Playing this type of music has allowed me to have deeply moving conversations with people who connect to the experiences I describe. I treasure these conversations. They are the thing that keeps me going when I feel like there’s no point to my silly little songs in my silly little band.

“I recorded the vocal take for this song very shortly after Roe v Wade was overturned, so I was extremely fired up and dejected, but wanted to remind myself why we keep going.”
