SHVPES Premiere “Calloused Hands” Video

SHVPES have premiered a new video for their new song “Calloused Hands.” This track is from the band’s new album “Greater Than,” which will be released on November 9.

Vocalist Griffin Dickinson commented:

“This is the first song we wrote together after coming back from our first European tour. We’d been out for 6 weeks, experiencing something we’d always dreamed of… As soon as we got back, as with most tours, reality hits and you’re sucked back into the ‘real world’ that pressures you to go and get a ‘real job’ I.e. doing something you probably don’t care about, for some narcissistic company that equally doesn’t care about you. This song was all about reminding myself why I don’t want to be a part of that. With lyrics like “capitalise; cannibalise” & “paralysed by your next fix” it’s exploring the futility of the paper chase.”

“Greater Than” Track Listing:

01. “Calloused Hands”
02. “Undertones”
03. “Afterlife”
04. “Someone Else”
05. “Two Wrongs, No Rights”
