Emergency

by Chris Catalyst

My name's Chris, I've spent the last six years playing with Swedish behemoths Ghost, and now it's time for me to put some of my own stuff out. It's from a new LP I've done 'Mad In England', and it's a trip through my record collection which consists of all the best tunes. I guess I would say that.

We're Squidge, a four-piece comprised of silly sad punks. Today we released our new track, Cardboard Box, which covers a deep self-reflection of a person's life from their deathbed. It's not all doom and gloom though as the track is 3 minutes of killer riffs, breakdowns and monstrous choruses! Enjoy!
