York-based hardcore punk four-piece, Seep Away are readying the release of their first single in a year on Friday, July 28, ‘Matchstick Man’. The new single is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP, ‘The Blackened Carnival Of Societal Ineptitude’, due in the Autumn.

Mixed by Dom Fraser (Hello Operator, Pelico) at Melrose Yard in York, the track itself takes influence from thrash legends Municipal Waste, alongside hardcore standouts Expire and Incendiary, the track is a vitriolic stab at those individuals we all know who drain the life out of those around them.

Vocalist Jay Sillence comments: “This song is quite personal to me – we all know that special type of assh*le who sucks the life out of people with their actions – they just want to fight, and fuc*, and they have nothing else in their life of any value, so they have to take from others. This song is a dedication to that special person in my life, and I hope other people can relate to the venom that I feel.”

The band’s new EP, ‘The Blackened Carnival Of Societal Ineptitude’ will be released in Autumn. The tentative tracklisting is as follows: 


‘Matchstick Man’ 


‘Joie de vivre’
