Iguana Death Cult Unveil New Single “Oh No”

Taken From New Album due 12th May via Innovative Leisure

UK Tour Dates This Month

Ahead of the release of their forthcoming LP, Echo Palace (due 12th May via Innovative Leisure) and UK live dates this month, Dutch rock band Iguana Death Cult return with a brand new single entitled “Oh No.” Previously, the band shared two stellar singles, “Pushermen” and “Sensory Overload,” and this new track continues the hype in anticipation of the record’s drop in May.

Wrote the band of the track: “Inspired by Dutch writer Jan Cremer, I decided to write a song about how incredibly amazing I am. This sort of self-mythification seemed funny to me since I spend most of my days wallowing in doubt and worry. In the end it became a metaphor for how we polish up our lives to near perfection on our social media accounts, while mental health problems are becoming more norm rather than an exception.”

“Oh No” starts with this fierce introduction to the boisterous bass line, challenging the flow immediately and carving out the continuous depth of the catchy release. Following through the angular elements and unpredictable stop-starts. The outfit has this remarkable ability to create the most immersive and mesmeric journey that enthralls the audience at every turn. With the new single, this punchy and charming soundscape keeps you captivated, injecting deep rolling rhythms and an ardent attitude into this bouncy ensemble.

To accompany the new single, the band has also shared a music video, on which they wrote:

“One night, I played the new record for our good friend Max. When ‘Oh No’ came on and I heard myself sing the first line, I knew it; We have to get this guy in a knight costume. Max is a 6 foot 5 berserker but also one of the sweetest guys I know. We had so much fun making this video even though it was freezing and we had to hide from the rain every ten minutes. The banter you can have with this guy is unprecedented. One of the sharpest tongues in the game. Everything was filmed in Rotterdam again. Can’t represent this beautiful city enough! Because this song has a bit of an old school Iguana feel to it, Hache wanted to use a lot of video distortion like he did back in the day when he made the videos for our first record.”

In celebration of their forthcoming album, Iguana Death Cult made an appearance at this year’s SXSW (Austin, TX), where they played a total of nine showcases. Following the festival, Paste Magazine noted that the band was one of the “20 Best Acts” they saw there: “I knew I had to see Iguana Death Cult as soon as I heard the band’s name. And they didn’t disappoint. From the word ‘go,’ the whole crowd was dancing and pushing to their garage and psych-rock extravaganza.”
