Self Defense Family Share New Single Brittany Murphy In 8 Mile

Wednesday, 27 July 2016 Written by Laura Johnson

Self Defense Family have shared a new single, Brittany Murphy in 8 Mile.

The song is taken from the band's new EP, 'Colicky', which is due out on September 9 via Iron Pier. Discussing it, vocalist Patrick Kindlon said:

“I’ve got a thing for conversations in songs, duets preferred, but failing that, I’ll take some fool acting out both parts. And, if the singer can’t even manage that, I’ll settle for the gist. That’s what this one is, a sloppy, one-sided recounting of what is ultimately a composite dialogue. Worse than that, maybe it’s simulacra. Maybe this is how I think it should’ve gone, so I’ve manufactured that narrative.
"Songs I sing on are either explicit enough to leave no room for misunderstanding, or abstruse in such a way that it’s clearly not for the listener to understand. This one falls into the first camp. It’s exactly how it reads. I dated a truly wonderful woman who I just couldn’t make sense of.  
"When I asked her for permission to theme an album around her, she only asked I not make myself the victim. So, in the interest of respecting that, I’m going to extra double clarify the intention of this track’s lyrics. She’s got an issue or two. But I’ve got genuine personality defects.”

Self Defense Family will head to the UK this autumn as part of a European tour, they will be joined by Creative Adult for shows in Brighton, London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Norwich and Nottingham. Tickets are on sale now.

Although the average metal fan won’t exactly be in thrall to ‘90s romcom Jerry Maguire, it does contain a quote that’s pertinent here. At the conclusion of his passionately protracted monologue, Renee Zellweger famously tells Tom Cruise “you had me at hello.” Speaking with similar heart about this live offering, Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand proclaimed, “We're extremely proud of the fact it's 100% live with absolutely no overdubs!”, before needlessly unveiling plenty of details about the release. Josh, you had us at ‘100% live.’
