New Zealand born, London based rockers Desperate Measures return October 13th with a banging brand-new thrill ride titled ‘Sublime Destruction’. A high-voltage, hook-laden smasher, it comes firing out of the traps, all guns blazing and all speakers blaring.

“New single ‘Sublime Destruction’ is about how normal everyday things we take for granted are slowly being taken away and eroded, whether it’s our rights, the environment or even the health system,” explains frontman Eugene Butcher. “Blink and they will be gone.”

Following previous singles ‘Thinking Of England’ and ‘Back To The Rats’, ‘Sublime Destruction’ is another taster from the bands forthcoming debut album due early 2024. Recorded once again with Andy Brook (who has produced, engineered, and toured with the like of Status Quo, Ginger Wildheart, Wonk Unit, Hayseed Dixie…) at The Brook Studios in Wallington, Surrey, between recordings Desperate Measures have been busying themselves with a host of gigs, playing alongside Killing Joke, The Members, XSLF, Wingmen, The Boys and Spear Of Destiny etc.
