the 6th studio album from the energetic welsh indie-pop-rock 7-piece explores themes of anxiety, optimism & perseverance.

The album exists as a release of pent-up aggression, a document of both personal & societal malaise. But it’s also a celebration of just getting to be a band again, of getting to play music with their friends. Repressing anxiety & attempting to function while constantly maintaining the perfect two-beer buzz. It is set upon a backdrop of non-league football, prescribed medication & crumbling hometowns. These truly are the Sickest Scenes. "a liberating set of songs about odious city hipsters, youthful nostalgia and future anxiety, wrapped up in the seven-piece’s usual glorious flurry of chipper riffs and witty lyricisms" 8/10 - the skinny.
