Rascalton's raging new single 'Sign Of The Times' is all about the lyrics. That's why they've delivered a video spelling them out today. Political and angry, the Glasgow band rail against rising inequality in the UK on their latest cut.

Apocalyptic guitars push their way through a quickfire punk song that shows off this band's ability to bite into the heart of the matter. Like their previous releases, 'Sign Of The Times' presents distinctive vocals and a knack for making old instrumentation techniques fresh.

"Food banks growing bigger lines" the band sing on their newest song, which is of course about the stark and increasing inequality the UK is witnessing between rich and poor.

See the rest of the lyrics:

Co-written by Baby Strange's Johnny Madden, 'Sign Of The Times' is part of a new EP, currently postponed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Facing the subject of the song head on, frontman Jack Wyles said: "In Glasgow right now especially, the numbers of food banks being used is just increasing constantly every year, so that was in my mind writing most of this, but some of the lyrics about being in shops and empty shelves seem to feel very current and like what we're all experiencing right now."
