    Anyone know why this song was released? Is is just a new song that they felt like recording? Is it for a compilation? Does this lead to more new music or even a new album? I mean, I'll take it of course. I'm just inquisitive because the band hasn't been very active in the studio for nearly five years.

    Edit: I guess I should have paid attention to the lyrics more. I'm assuming they were just politically motivated and recorded this song in the moment, so to speak. If there's more to this though, I'd still like to know!

    They rerecorded the entirety of he Life in General album and sent it to everyone on their newsletter for free about 2 months ago. I think this was just a one-off but I wouldn't be surprised if they came out with a new album next year

    they sent the song in a newsletter a week or so ago and hinted that new music was coming. nothing specific as to when, but mike is a busy guy. i see him releasing music on some level for many years to come.

    I actually think this song was inspired by the Walking Dead...there's a Walking Dead shirt they released in conjunction with the song that matches the album artwork...just a guess.

    the artwork does look inspired by that, but read the lyrics. clearly a politically charged song.

    I replied to the email they sent with this song asking if this means a new album is coming and they said "We cannot confirm or deny that rumor" so I'm assuming a new album is coming
