Anglo-American four-piece The Imbeciles have shared their ode to the beautiful game in brand new single ‘Sunday Leaguer’, including its accompanying video.
‘Sunday Leaguer’ was inspired by the band’s love of English football. The song is both a banging punk celebration of the beautiful game, and a lament to the gaping hole left In peoples’ lives when Coronavirus forced the cancellation of all football in March.
As well as the Premier League, Match of the Day and other football staples, the song also celebrates the unsung legends of amateur Sunday League football.
Listen to ‘Sunday Leaguer’ by The Imbeciles on the Crystal Palace Official playlist on Spotify.
Band member Dante, a Crystal Palace fan, enlists Palace’s Holmesdale Fanatics on the track, who are heard chanting ‘Eagles,’ while the video for the song pays tribute to the club’s mascot, Keya, who sadly passed away this summer.
The Imbeciles delivering heavy, messy, anarchic, punk rock madness. The riff-
driven music is driven by shouty lyrics and underlined by a strong art aesthetic, which permeates throughout the band’s psychedelic music videos.
The band had originally gone into the studio earlier this year to record a radio session for 6Music. That ended up being cancelled because of the pandemic crisis.
The result is three new songs and three new versions of tracks that first appeared on their current album. Titled the Dissolution Sessions, they form the first release by art punk rockers since their well received eponymously named debut album earlier this year.
