Cambridge’s own STANDING LIKE STATUES have just released their second song of the year in the form of Survival. It follows up their successful single Truth Hurts and sophomore EP, Reality Checkpoint. The new enticing single has already proven to be a hit with press and fans alike, including strong support from Kerrang! Radio’s Johnny Doom (who recently DJ’d on their current UK tour). Their last few releases have been championed as some of the best tracks on the BBC Introducing uploader, following consistent airplay on BBC Music Introducing.
Effy (drums) comments on the new single:
“Survival makes your soul sing. It’s all about finding that inner strength to stand up for what you believe in and not be force-fed false facts and expected to digest it. The world can be dark, there’s corruption everywhere, it’s all about survival and finding your people.”
“this band hit a new high with every new song, bold, confident and
utterly brilliant” – Chris Straw – Bauer Radio
Formed in 2015, STANDING LIKE STATUES have supported We Are The Ocean, Decade, Fort Hope and Courage My Love, as well as being featured on BBC Look East and BBC Introducing East.
Inspired by the likes of Taking Back Sunday, 30 Seconds To Mars and Biffy Clyro, STANDING LIKE STATUES draw from the greats of alternative rock to combine anthemic energy with soul-searching lyrics.
STANDING LIKE STATUES have continued to work with renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda on this chapter of music, which has only solidified their unique tones and all-around ‘Statues Sound’.
