New Zealand born, London based rockers Desperate Measures return October 13th with a banging brand-new thrill ride titled ‘Sublime Destruction’. A high-voltage, hook-laden smasher, it comes firing out of the traps, all guns blazing and all speakers blaring. 

Desperate Measures “New single ‘Sublime Destruction’ is about how normal everyday things we take for granted are slowly being taken away and eroded, whether it’s our rights, the environment or even the health system,” explains frontman Eugene Butcher. “Blink and they will be gone.”

Following previous singles ‘Thinking Of England’ and ‘Back To The Rats’, ‘Sublime Destruction’ is another taster from the bands forthcoming debut album due early 2024. Recorded once again with Andy Brook (who has produced, engineered, and toured with the like of Status Quo, Ginger Wildheart, Wonk Unit, Hayseed Dixie…) at The Brook Studios in Wallington, Surrey, between recordings Desperate Measures have been busying themselves with a host of gigs, playing alongside Killing Joke, The Members, XSLF, Wingmen, The Boys and Spear Of Destiny etc.

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
