Cosmic Punks WACO Share Western-Inspired Music Video

21st August 2020

Ahead of the release of their ambitious second album Hope Rituals on 28th August 2020, London cosmic punks WACO have shared a new single today titled ‘Learn To Live Again’ available to stream now via all good digital platforms.

The single comes with yet another great video from the band—filmed and edited by Paul Blue at True Media and guest-starring South London punks Werecats vocalist Pippa—that turns the Back To The Future III plot on its head, as a plucky time-travelling cowboy finds himself transplanted to 21st century London.

“This is a Western-inspired disco rock song about self-belief,” comments front man Jak Hutchcraft. “We took as much inspiration from Sergio Leone as we did from Hot Chocolate. The lyrics tell a story of empowerment—a story about breaking the invisible, but very real, chains which hold us back. The road is long and the journey is tough, but we must carry on. Let this be one of the many freedom songs that accompany us as we travel together.”

Across the course of the album campaign, and in keeping with their message of positive activism, the band have been donating all single profits to charity and have so far helped to raise hundreds of pounds for Mind – The Mental Health CharityTheStephen Lawrence TrustThe George Floyd Memorial Fund, and NHS Charities Together.

To celebrate the release of Hope Rituals, the band recently announced UK tour dates from September through to December including selected dates with The Young Hearts, dubbed ‘The Freedom Tour’,  and a much-anticipated London Underworld show with Wonk Unit (full details can be found below).
