Beat Awfuls have shared the new single “Ego Death Kult” ahead of the February 13th release of their album, PAWS, via Colleen Green’s Cocoa Beach Tapes label.

Band member Dave Vicini comments:

“‘Ego Death Kult’ describes a moment when an oppressive reality becomes so clear that it flashes neon with ridiculousness, like an exit sign. The hypnotic guitar riff forces out an instinctive head-bob, ad infinitum, becoming terminally driving— like a cult imperative. The lyrics play against this hypnosis with almost flippant affirmations like, ‘let it all out.’ While we are busy trying to figure out if this is an entreaty for or against the cult, we get the sense that— hey, either way, I think we’re going to make it out of this thing alive.”
