Backhand Deals: Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard Return To Brighton Ahead Of Release Of Highly Anticipated Debut Album

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard who made a flying visit to Brighton late last year are back with a new date in the city and their follow up to Crescent Man vs Demolition Dan - a protest single which struck a chord in the local community following the destruction of grassroot culture venues. 

Break Right In is the latest taste of their debut album Backhand Deals.

Speaking about the single vocalist & guitarist Tom Rees explains: 

"I feel like, especially in Britain, our obsession with social convention and politeness has diluted the effectiveness of protest. 

"I feel like institutions have become accustomed to the idea of protest as we know it so it's become an event, like Carnival or T in the Park, when in actual fact it should be a response to a breach of the present overarching social contract we all abide to. 

"When the social contract is broken by those who we put in power to maintain it, who says you can't go and smash up an M&S? All bets are off right?"

The video for Break Right In is the first part of a two-part film and is the band's second collaboration with director Will Clark - who also directed the Sunny Delight-inspired video for You

Speaking about the video, Rees says: 

"Nothing quite illuminates the unjust society we live in, riddled with bad actors and nefarious despots seeking to limit our freedoms and starve us economically, like four young men playing dress-up in a massive mansion. All joking aside, Will Clark is a genius."

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard's new single 'Break Right In' is available to view HERE. New album 'Backhand Deals' is out now. The band play Komedia Brighton on 19th April 2022.

Their marriage was stormy, passionate and explosive.
