Today has seen M(h)aol return with their newest offering, Bored Of Men, the first release to follow on from the success of their debut EP, Gender Studies. Alongside the new single, the band have also announced their appearances at the likes of Latitude Festival and Pitchfork Paris.
Speaking of the track, vocalist Róisín Nic Ghearailt states:
I wrote the lyrics of this song in a matter of minutes while we were recording together. The ideas had obviously been fermenting in my head for a while, and it was written during *that* extremely disconcerting & alarmingly public court case. The title of the song is very tongue in cheek for me, but it does reference a real sense of frustration and exhaustion with the patriarchy. When I say the patriarchy I don’t mean individuals (although they can obviously perpetuate it), I mean institutional and structural oppression.
This Summer is set to see M(h)aol play at multiple festivals across the UK and Europe – including the likes of Green Man, End Of The Road, and the newly announced Latitude Festival, and Pitchfork Paris. Alongside their festival appearances, the band will also play a headline show at London’s The Grace later this month, supported by TULLE label-mates, GRAVE GOODS.
