DoubleCross Records new signing The Virginmarys, announce their first single ‘Dead Man’s Shoes’ (out 1st October 2012), taken from the band’s debut album, ‘King Of Conflict’.
Having spent the last two years touring extensively, supporting the likes of Eagles Of Death Metal, Slash, Ash, We Are Scientists and Skunk Anansie, repeated headline club tours and appearances at Download and Sonisphere it’s little wonder that the likes of Kerrang have already started to fall for their ‘attitude spitting guitars’.
‘Dead Man’s Shoes’, according to bassist Matt Rose, “encompasses exactly what The Virginmarys are about, it’s the ultimate Virginmary’s tune.
Concerned with self-delusion, singer and lyricist Ally describes it as a song about ‘knowing what you do is damaging but doing it anyway”.
