Caracal takes aim at hypocrisy on new song, 'Mouth of Madness' – listen

Something thunderously heavy has arrived in the ether. Caracal has released a seething ripper of a song christened 'Mouth of Madness' via a premiere on Australian alternative music publication Hysteria Mag.

The track reels with a heady pound unleashed by a seismic rhythm section and serrated guitars, which splits the difference between being trebly and angular and panoramically expansive.

Speaking with Hysteria Mag, the band reveals that the song is borne from the tensions between social institutions and civil society in Singapore and the hypocrisy that underpins these relationships. The cancellation of the Watain show is alluded to as an example of the knee-jerk reactions that attend to the range of artistic expression permitted in Singapore.

'Mouth of Madness' comes in the run-up to Caracal's first-ever show in Australia, that happens on 30 August
