After press and radio acclaim for their 2017 debut album Mortal Ghost, Nashville grunge “Rusty Shipp” rockers are back with an extended line-up and their fresh single “Breaking Waves.“
The driving slice of anthemic alt-rock is still the finest instance of their capacity to weld visceral power chords to pop melodies and comes on a submarine with a cinematic video shot that you can see below.
“Breaking Waves” describes the war between technology and nature and is the first glimpse into their forthcoming new album, Liquid Exorcist – a concept album about sea mine terrorism.
“’Breaking Waves’ is the catchiest song we’ve ever made,” explains frontman Russ T. Shipp. “Lyrically it’s more philosophical and describes the battle between technology and nature in a tortoise-and-the-hare-like metaphor where mankind’s mightiest technology won’t stand a chance in the long run against the simple, steady erosion of the ocean’s immortal waves (ie, nature) breaking it down. I think that’s for the best, and humanity is better off not waiting for centuries of erosion before it’s returned to what’s immaterial and most important – its soul.“
