Unveil debut album’s title track, ‘Need To Feel Your Love

Debut full-length album, NEED TO FEEL YOUR LOVE
due 14th July on Static Shock Records (UK/EU)

UK/EU tour in July and August

Today, Philadelphia, PA’s Sheer Mag have shared “Need To Feel Your Love,” the title track from their anticipated debut album. When asked about the Al Green-inspired song, singer Tina Halladay said it’s about “when you get to the point of a romantic relationship and you feel as if you have done everything to give that person a chance to make the most out of it and you are at the breaking point and you NEED them to do something more, even if you don’t exactly know that is.”

Need To Feel Your Love is available for pre-order now and due out on July 14th via Static Shock Records (UK/EU).

About Sheer Mag:

A tear in the firmament.

Beyond the noxious haze of our national nightmare – as structures of social justice and global progress topple in our midst – there lies a faint but undeniable glow in the distance.

What is it?

Like so many before us we are drawn to the beacon.  But only by the bootstraps of our indignation do we go so boldly into the dark to find it.

And so SHEER MAG has let the sparks fly since their outset, with an axe to grind against all that clouds the way.  A caustic war cry, seething in solidarity with all those that suffer the brunt of ignorance and injustice in an imbalanced system.

Both brazen and discrete, loud yet precise, familiar but never quite like this – SHEER MAG crept up from Philadelphia cloaked in bold insignia to channel our social and political moment with grit and groove.  Cautious but full of purpose.

What is it?

By making a music both painfully urgent and spiritually timeworn, SHEER MAG speak to a modern pain: to a people that too feel their flame on the verge of being extinguished, yet choose to burn a bit brighter in spite of that threat.

With their debut LP, the cloak has been lifted. It is time to reclaim something that has been taken from us. Here the band rolls up their sleeves, takes to the streets, and demands recompense for a tradition of inequity that’s poisoned our world.

However, it is in our ability to love – our primal human right to give and receive love – that the damage of such toxicity is newly explored.

Love is a choice we make.  We ought not obscure, neglect, or deny that choice.

Through the tumult and the pain, the camaraderie and the cause, the band continues to burn a path into that great beyond.

But where are we headed?

On NEED TO FEEL YOUR LOVE, they makes their first full-length declaration of light seen just beyond our darkness.  Spoken plainly, without shame:

It is love.

This – is SHEER MAG.

“Sheer Mag’s music stuffs hip-shaking hooks and burly riffs within impeccably structured pop songs, wrapped in lyrics both open-hearted and openly political. They’re the Jackson 5 raised to play punk rock, with an F-5 tornado for a singer.” – Pitchfork

“when Sheer Mag lock into the riffs and Halladay’s screech hits its stride, they’re a burst of Technicolor excitement.” – The Guardian
