Having been quiet apart from the odd show here and there for a year or so, Lumer are back with a bang with their new single 'Hatred is a passion of theirs' and news of a second EP scheduled for release in June.
Hatred...mixes incisive social commentary with a very fresh new sound from the band and is easily one of their best tracks to date. Channeling understandable frustration and disdain for the increasingly polarized nature of Britain / Europe / The World, lead singer Alex Evans says of the single 'We've been to pubs, seen on social media, that old fella who still lives in 1954 and hates the non-white, young and everything in between. Boris is his saviour, Trump's an accessory and If Hatred is a passion then it must be theirs'.
The single will be supported by a music video in collaboration with Fred Perry.
