Demob Happy have announced their third studio album.

The Brighton-based trio will release 'Divine Machines' on May 26, marking their first full-length for their new label home Liberator Music. The news comes with the record's fiery first single, Voodoo Science, a searing, scuzzy groove-based rock track. The trio said:

"We wrote Voodoo Science as a bit of chaos – an antidote to banality – a magic potion written to defy the collective stupor of the recent past. Something to wake you up and shake you up!"

Commenting on the record, frontman Matthew Marcantonio added:

"I really see what’s happening to the human race as a moment in a hero’s journey. We're at the point in the James Bond film where the villains reveal themselves and tell us the plan. We’ve got Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, these absolute supervillains with their rockets doing whatever the fuck they want, and software guru Bill Gates buying vast swathes of farmland for who knows what. They’re all revealing their plans to humanity and we’re all still going, 'I hope they’re the good guys!'"

"What we need is inspiration to change because we only win this war if the change starts with us. There’s huge ripples of that in society, and it’s distorted through social media, but you can see people becoming more self-aware. That’s what I wanted to write about - inspiring that change."

Their last LP was 2018's 'Holy Doom'.
