New Pagans announce debut album ‘The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All’

New Pagans have announced the release of their debut album The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All, which will be out March 19th via Big Scary Monsters.
 
To celebrate the announcement, they have also released the powerful new single ‘Christian Boys’, which is reminiscent of Sonic Youth with their fierce attitude, channelling gritty pop-sensibilities alongside striking vocals, driving rhythms and lucid guitar tones.
 
Throughout the debut album, the band use their creative influence to challenge past and present issues surrounding relationships, equality, history, and gender, all wrapped up in their alternative, post-punk, indie rock style.
 
‘Christian Boys’ is no different and is a dramatic example of what to expect from their fiery debut. The song itself is about one of lead singer Lyndsey McDougall’s friends, who told her about a Christian leader in Northern Ireland with whom she had been having an affair just before he got married to his virgin bride.
 
The band comment, “This is shocking but what is more disturbing is that it hadn’t been the first-time similar stories had emerged. When these men were confronted, they all stated that the women were to blame, it had been their fault, they were the sinners and had led the Christian men astray.
 
“This song calls out the people who blame others for their mistakes and don’t take responsibility for their own actions. Lyndsey knows that some of the lyrics in the song could be considered controversial, but she has grown up around Christian men and believes that this conversation needs to happen, it shouldn’t be off limits.”
