Scotland's The Decrees Announce Double A-Side Single 'Sons Of Rage'

Scotland's The Decrees Announce Double A-Side Single 'Sons Of Rage'


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Scotland's The Decrees have announced they will release their new single 'Sons of Rage', comprised of two tracks, the other one being 'West Sierra'. Hailing from Fife, Scotland, The Decrees are a no-holds barred Rock 'n' Roll band possessing high-octane energy from the punk realm. They mix different blends of genres in their songs but still retain a raw and provocative take on music that is reminiscent of a bygone age.

'Sons of Rage' was recorded by Michael Brennan, Jr. of The Substation (Mogwai, Snow Patrol, Super Furry Animals, Loop, Primal Scream) and mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Pixies, Jack White, The Rolling Stones, Lana Del Rey).

The band was formed in early 2016. Their line up comprises of vocalist Lewis Akers, bassist Caitlin Petrie, guitarist Callum Bell and drummer Kieran Bell. Since their formation, The Decrees have become quite popular locally and are now becoming better known on the national scene.

In April of this year, The Decrees released their debut four-track EP 'Screams From Suburbia', offering a musical account of the everyday experiences of the monotony of modernity. This release blends full-throttle rock music with catchy choruses and beats.

'Sons of Rage' was one of the first songs the band wrote after forming, retaining their trademark sound while weaving in an infectious Celtic rock melody. This beckons to the forgotten past, to the band's Scottish roots, affectionately nestled in the band's collective psyche. This follows in the same vein of such Celtic-folk tunes as 'The Gael', steadily imparting strong and re-occurring themes and melodies, and coupled with the strong, driving and near-primal beats throughout. The music follows and compliments the triumphalism embedded in the lyrics.

This is a significant release for the band as it shows a more emotive side of their music, transmitting a massive dose of positive energy while also resonating with deeper musical inspirations.

"Lyrically and musically, this song is a serenade to that something better found over the horizon, way past those neon lights. It's about directing all your energies into chasing something you desire. Something that you are waiting for and hoping it won't pass you by," says guitarist Callum Bell. "It is about those intrepid few in the past who achieved the impossible."

"We like to be explosive. We want to put on a performance, and for us, it's as much theatre as it is music at times," says vocalist Lewis Akers."We like it when the audience gets up and dances with us as well".

The Decrees' influences range from The Doors, Hawkwind, and The Sex Pistols to The Who, AC/DC and Issues. Guitarist Callum Bell's love for Stuart Adamson of Big Country and also Gaelic-folk music are felt particularly in 'West Sierra'. a new era of rythmic rage and musical rebellion!

The 'Sons of Rage' single will be released on October 27 and made available on all the regular online stores and streaming sites, but is already available for pre-order via The Decrees' Bandcamp.

TRACK LIST
1. Sons of Rage
2. West Sierra

"'Sons of Rage' and 'West Sierra' are firecrackers as far as tunes go. Finding a sweet spot between pop-punk and fire-energized indie rock, you can nearly picture them giving you the finger one second and then inviting you into the mosh pit with them the next. And you'll zealously concede." - Big Takeover Magazine
"Livewires... One of the youngest and most explosive bands on the West Fife scene" - Dunfermline Press
"Their set was 'Wild'. Lewis Akers antics on stage remind me of a young Mick Jagger or once the t-shirt came off a young Iggy Pop" - PatchChordNews
"A sweaty, satisfying rock'n'roll journey... It was an impressive set to say the least" - HeardnotHerd Music blog.
