Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard return with new single "30,000 Megabucks"

Welsh quartet Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have followed up their debut EP with new single "30,000 Megabucks".

"30,000 Megabucks" is the anthemic new outing from Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, marking their first release since their debut EP Non-Stop dropped in July.

The new song was written while the band were touring with Our Girl in 2018. Lead vocalist Tom Rees explains, ""30,000 Megabucks" was inspired by a seemingly ridiculous but very real request from an old publishing agency that I was with, who wanted £30,000 to release me from the deal. It all turned out fine in the end, but back then I was so furious that I decided to put pen to paper to ‘take down the man’ as it were. The ‘Mega’ element comes from the total amount of nuclear bombing power required to completely devastate all human life on planet Earth, which is 30,000 megatons."

Rees continued, "I had been watching a lot of Chernobyl documentaries and also a film called Threads, so a small part of me was quite excited when they asked for £30k because the narrative locked in quite well. For that reason it was sure to be a hit - take that, man! We used to play the riff in sound check just because it sounded like AC/DC and we even played it as one of the walk-on songs on Soccer AM when we were on there. When we play it live it goes on for like fifteen minutes!"

On top of releasing "30,000 Megabucks", Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have announced a new livestream event with special guests, THE BEAUTIFUL SHOW, which will take place at Cardiff Bay's Portland House on 9 December.

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard's "30,000 Megabucks" single is out now on Communion. Their THE BEAUTIFUL SHOW livestream starts at 7pm GMT on 9 December. Tickets are available to buy now.
