East Anglian alt-rockers Ducking Punches release their fourth studio album Alamort on 16 February 2018.
Fresh from its stripped down live version for the XMROB1 Truck session, the full-band studio version of 'Sobriety' is here for you to hear right now.
Speaking about close-to-the-bone subject matter that inspired the track, Dan Allen said:
"Sobriety is a song that outlines a lot of my addictive personalities, something myself and a bunch of my friends have struggled with over the years."
With the album's title taken from an archaic term meaning 'half dead from exhaustion', Alamort offers a solemn pretext to the nerve-shattering lifestyle and backbreaking work ethic that formed the backdrop of this often brutally honest record. Allen said:
"Alamort seemed a fitting title for what myself and the band had been through recently. Some of these songs are frighteningly honest but it has been really therapeutic to write. Themes of the album range from crippling self-doubt to death, friendship, love, witch-hunters, addiction and hope."
