San Diego indie rock/glam-punk duo Crocodiles (aka Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell) have announced the release of their new studio album ‘Upside Down In Heaven‘.
The follow-up to 2019’s Love is Here, will be out on April 7 through Lolipop Records. Pre-order your copy here.
The band have also shared the album’s lead single “Degeneration” and its accompanying music video.
Commenting on the track, Welchez says: “The heaviness of life on a violent, dying planet can often push us towards our worst impulses. Degeneration was written in the boiling, diseased summer of 2020 where I found myself overworked, underpaid and choking on wildfire smoke. The free time I had was spent doom-scrolling the latest covid death toll or inundating myself with news of literal fascists marching the streets. I found myself floating on a cloud of anger, fear and frustration. Rather than allow myself to fall into bad old habits or succumb to my negative emotion.”
Watch the video below, co-directed by Welchez and Kate Clover.
