Brookyln's muscular post-punks Big Ups recently announced their third full-length Two Parts Together for release on May 18th with the single 'PPP'. They've today followed it up with a new track and video called 'Fear'.

Big Ups singer Joe Galarraga has given a thoughtful intro to 'Fear' and its video, saying: "A lot of this album focuses on liminality and takes place in liminal spaces. 'Fear' talks about the unknown and turns it into anxiety - dealing with uncertainties before going to sleep and the difficulty of navigating a new day when confronted with the harshness of reality. This was an interesting song to write because the second verse mirrors the first in such a way that attempts to make the anxieties of the morning and night indistinguishable. The video for 'Fear' was pieced together by Brendan using clips he found on YouTube, as well as videos that all of us have taken of our shows and tours over the years. Some of the video dates back as early as 2010; there is footage from our very first show included! It was a fun way to catalogue and highlight some of our favourite shows, venues, tours, videographers, and memories, and we hope others can enjoy it, too."

We're sure you will enjoy it, as it features their classically erratic and enthusiastic rock, attuned to personal anxiety - where it's suited best. Watch below.
