Bob Vylan have released their brand new single, "Makes Me Violent", taken from their forthcoming album, Humble As The Sun.

"Makes me violent is a letter to England. A country that tells us not to be angry or violent but continues to carry out and allow some of the most violent atrocities in the world. But while it talks about the way this country has treated us and many like us it’s hopeful and is filled with resistance. We’re not going anywhere. We’re staying right here to give this place hell," they explain.

Following on from the MOBO award-winning and chart-topping album, Bob Vylan Presents the Price of Life, the message woven throughout Humble as the Sun remains dark in places but is defiant and unapologetic in its critique of a broken social and political system that so many have fallen victim to, but feel powerless against.

"This album is for the underdogs, the ones who come out swinging and those who refuse to be defeated in the face of injustice, and aims to remind listeners that anger is a fire that can be harnessed and put to use," they continue. "The album creation started from a conversation with the sun, which is, after all, a big ball of fire that sustains life. From masculinity to myths about the G Spot, the themes and topics explored on 'Humble As The Sun' make for an often humorously empowering celebration of the peoples ability to endure, overcome and bring about change."

Humble as the Sun is set for release on 5 April, and is available to pre-order now.
