Moose Blood has spent a lot of time on the road since breaking through on the national rock scene about half a decade ago. Touring two albums released just two years apart is a grueling process, and that wear and tear invigorates the latest track from the British punks’ forthcoming third LP, fittingly titled I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore.
“It’s Too Much” just sounds like the numbing routine of the road, an icy, entrancing expanse of repetitive riffs and mid-tempo drums, perhaps meant to evoke that unrelenting march of soundchecks and early alarm clocks. “I feel like I haven’t slept in months and it takes everything that I have to get up,” drawls guitarist Eddy Brewerton in one particularly dire point in the second verse. “Please take my home” is the final plea, repeated over and over before the guitars finally combust and peter out.
Take a listen below and drift into the headspace of Moose Blood LP number three.
I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore drops March 9 via Hopeless Records. In following up 2016’s Blush, they’ve also shared a new track called “Talk In Your Sleep.”
After a U.K. tour this March, they’ll hit North America for a string of dates starting March 14 in Boston. Find those, along with other details on the new album here.
