Bad Breeding are a British hardcore-punk band comprised of Ashlea Bennett, Charlie Rose, Chris Dodd, Matt Toll. One year after Abandonment EP, they announced the release of a new full-length. Exile is out on June 21st via One Little Indian. They shared the official video for the new track “Whose Cause?”. It was directed by Owen Deutsch.
“Whose Cause? explores political misdirection in the media and its role in sowing seeds of division, suspicion and distrust in our communities,” explains front man Christopher Dodd. “It touches on the nefarious ties between capital and a pocketed media class, while commenting on how instruments of the right have harnessed and manipulated divisive politics of identity in an attempt to dent the collective bonds of solidarity that bind our communities together. It’s about pushing beyond force-fed narratives and looking at the disastrous implications reactionary storytelling has on propping up the survival of late capitalism and the patrician outriders it funds and protects: the gilded bourgeoisie, the imperialists, the warmongers, the contemptuous old-money hawks, the emboldened corporate elite.”
