Nervus Tease 'Tough Crowd' With New Track They Don't

Tuesday, 20 August 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Nervus have shared a second track from their upcoming album.

With 'Tough Crowd' set to arrive on September 27 via Big Scary Monsters, They Don't follows the previously shared Flies and takes a swipe at the UK government’s investment in policing, as well as lead vocalist Em Foster’s own experiences with the police. They said: 

"It's about the function of police as social control and protection of property and wealth rather than their purported function of actually keeping communities safe. This money could be going into community projects, youth work, adequate mental health services and education. It's clear our government values profit over people, and we reject that."

The powerful punk statement is accompanied by a companion zine called They Don't Keep You Safe, which is being issued "to highlight injustice and directly rebuke the claims of Boris Johnson that increasing numbers of police keeps society safer." More on that here.

The Watford punks will play a string of UK and US dates this autumn, including a main support slot at Pup's London show. You can also catch them at Big Scary Monsters Big Day Out at London's Moth Club in September.

Nervus Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Sun September 29 2019 - BIRMINGHAM Sunflower Lounge
Tue October 01 2019 - OXFORD Wheatsheaf
Thu October 03 2019 - NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE Head of Steam
