Earlier this month, Greys announced their third LP on Carpark Records, 'Age Hasn't Spoiled You', and today they have shared the video for single "Arc Light"

According to frontman Shehzaad Jiwani, 'Arc Light' was the first track the band worked on for Age Hasn't Spoiled You, and he feels that it encapsulates what the band are trying to accomplish with their new record.

"If there were one song to communicate everything Greys is about, it would be 'Arc Light,'" he says. "This is the first song we recorded for Age Hasn't Spoiled You at the top of 2018, and each song we wrote over the year we spent making the album could trace a piece of itself back to this one. Musically, it's everywhere we've been and everywhere we're going. We tried to re-imagine and re-contextualize the tools we are comfortable using to make something new. The lyrics try to evoke a number of things within each line - mental exhaustion, content fatigue, tours of duty and alienation - and the images in the video reflect these overlapping concepts. The song lands somewhere between Unwound's New Plastic Ideas and Check Your Head by the Beastie Boys. Or something. I don't know. You tell me."

'Age Hasn't Spoiled You' will be released on May 10th on Carpark Records.
