Ahead of the Friday, August 13th release of their new album Strange, Strange Times via Napalm Records, Melbourne, Australia-based rock group, The Ugly Kings—which consists of Christos Athanasias (guitar), Nicolas Dumont (bass), Joel Martin (drums), and Russell Clark (vocals)—have unveiled the music video for the title track. The new studio recording follows 2018’s Darkness Is My Home and was led by the singles “Technodrone” and “The Devil Comes With A Smile.”

Commenting on the song’s theme, the group shares, “‘Strange, Strange Times’ is about anxiety. The world seems to be getting weirder and weirder every year and we are becoming more and more in touch with everything that is happening on earth as it happens. It’s impossible to process and impossible to make sense of. ‘Strange, Strange Times’ is the low hum that we all carry around with us every day, the itch on our back that we can’t scratch, it’s the first cut in a thousand cuts. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and count to ten.”
