Hellions have revealed their brand new single “Thresher”, the second cut from their new album “Opera Oblivia”, which is to be released on July 29 via UNFD.  

On "Thresher" guitarist Matthew Gravolin explains: "About Existential disillusionment - the need for constant escape. I had a particularly bad day and opened the floodgates on this one. We were stuck on this track for a while during the writing process, musically it sounded quite sweet so originally I had wanted it to be a love song, but it ended up sounding too sweet and was incongruous with the other songs. After months of being stuck with this lyrically we decided to go in the complete opposite direction and make it as dark as we could lyrically. The contrast between the sentimentality of the music and the rawness of the lyrics made for a much more unique song."
