GANG – Reveal new track ‘Enough Nothing’

GANG – AA-side single ‘Dead’ / ‘Enough Nothing’

Due November 25th via Ra-Ra Rok Records

gangHaving supported L.A.’s WAND across their recent UK tour, Brighton trio GANG have revealed ‘Enough Nothing’, the flip-side to their forthcoming AA-side 7” single ‘Dead’ / ‘Enough Nothing’, due November 25th via Ra-Ra Rok Records.

Inspired by the inescapable digital anxieties we all subconsciously succumb to, drummer/singer Jimi Tormey explains, “With the plethora of information, misinformation and wealth floating through the Internet nothing is enough. Each and every modern human is cradled by this feeling. Sitting at home anxiously scanning a newsfeed, selling your newest venture, scratching the surface of any article searching for something, for anything, to fill the void. Listen carefully and you might hear your own thoughts waking, wandering and whispering Enough Nothing, Enough Nothing, Enough Nothing.”

Originally from Canterbury and Margate, now residing in Brighton, Gang are brothers Eric and Jimi Tormey and adopted sibling Joseph Hunt. Relying on a strong set of ethics, driven by the ethos to ‘do it themselves’, they seek to remain unified, not unaided. “To separate us is to conquer us, and unity is strength”, Jimi explains of their manifesto. “For this reason we surround ourselves with likeminded, creative individuals, forming a community – Gang is a messiah, an illustrator, a photographer, a videographer. We are any and all who aid us. Each of us is branded with a Gang tattoo committing ourselves to unity. D.I.Y, as we know it, is dead – R.I.P to D.I.Y – killed by vapid, lo-fi bedroom pop. We’ll D.I.O until we D.I.E.”

‘Dead’ stems from modern apathy,” Jimi continues. “We’re all dying right now and sadly in this modern, consumerist age we are taught, throughout life, to be concerned most with the clothes that cover us and represent us in death. Because of this we’ll be releasing this song alongside a clothing item with our friends at Terrible Merch (post ironic, huh?). If life is like writing a letter, then dying is one’s signature and death itself is the sealing of the envelope. We need not fear the end because it is one’s life that will echo in the words of the letter. One end is a new beginning and as long as the postal service doesn’t misplace you then the lives we have led will echo endlessly. So why don’t we stop trying to feed the void with money’s lack of sustenance and try to get a better feel for what’s important. We don’t want to feel better. We want to better feel.”

Following their praised ‘Animalia’ 7”, released earlier this year via Corner Shop Pop Records alongside a self-organised tour of the UK and a BBC 6Music session with Marc Riley, Gang have played alongside Sub Pop’s So Pitted and US sludge-lords Wand, who they will reunite with on a small UK tour through November on the dates below. All of Gang’s music is recorded by Eric at Barnroom Studios, the garage/studio of their father, cult guitarist Bernie Tormé (Ex-Ozzy Osbourne & Atomic Rooster), utilising the weird and wonderful recording equipment that he has collected over the years.
