Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have unveiled details of their debut album.

'Backhand Deals' will arrive on February 25 via Communion Records and feature the newly shared single, You.

Unfurling around buoyant guitars and a swaggering rhythm, the political-leaning track draws on influences from '70s glam in the same vein as Queen and T-Rex. It comes with a Will Clark-directed video inspired by Sunny Delight. Vocalist and guitarist Tom Rees said:

"Individual responsibility has always been around, but I feel over the past three elections we’re so jacked up on it we don’t remember what community living was like. We're all just huffing this Darwinist glue of "I am a lion and lion’s look after themselves", which is objectively incorrect. It seems weird that the burden of individual responsibility is touted by elitist slugs who have never had to work for anything in their lives and have had everything given to them as and when they asked for it… imagine being told to pick yourselves up by your bootstraps by Jacob Rees-Mogg."

He added: "The benefit of the burden allows privileged thugs to inspire in the rest of us a special kind of hatred for people less fortunate than us. Not even less fortunate than us, but less fortunate than anyone at any point in time which is why it’s such a perfect tool - it applies to everyone at every time across every spectrum of belief. When arguments break down to the level of personal responsibility, the higher concepts that warrant that arguments are set aside, which is the primary source of it’s discoursal power."

The news follows their single, Crescent Man vs Demolition Dan, which also appears on the record, and their recent homecoming gig at Cardiff Castle in August.

The band are currently on the road supporting The Blinders. They'll play Focus Wales in Wrexham in October, followed by two sold out shows at The Social in London.
