Under The Influence release the new single ‘Gone’ on 3rd May, out via Riot Records.
Wollongong, Australia punk act UNDER THE INFLUENCE (UTI) are set to release their new single ‘Gone’ on 3rd May via Riot Records.
‘Gone’ holds a very special place in the guys’ hearts, dealing with the epidemic of mental health and the loss of someone close. You can hear the angst and the anguish in the song and despite the dark topic, it is still a razor-sharp frenzied punk song that is riddled with emotion.
‘’When you lose someone close to you it’s not easy. Mental health is so important. Self-medication through alcohol and drugs can lead you down a slippery slope of mental and physical decay, maybe until it’s too late. This track is about mental health issues, substance abuse and the death of friends and loved ones. Please take care of yourself and look out for those around you. This song is dedicated to the life of Pete Domio. Rest in peace Pete.’’ – UTI.
