“Still Life with Maggots” is the first single from the upcoming album. The single was recorded live off the floor and shows the growth the band has made together over the past 11 years. This album is the eighth addition to the band’s repertoire and they are looking to show off a new side to their fans:
We’re trying to give people a raw-ass document of abrasive sludge and noise rock in the most hi-fi package possible. We’re not interested in polish or smoothing over any rough edges… just achieving something of high sonic quality that presents the band that we are today…
Following the theme of mortality persistent through the album, “Still Life with Maggots” is about existential dread and the general feeling of anxiety some people experience daily. Taking a lighter path than in previous years, The Great Sabatini is less focused on complicating their parts and set on being direct along with working together and highlighting each other’s strengths. Not wanting to emulate any bands, they do, however, point to some band favorites like Botch, Melvins, and Neurosis as inspiration to consider different elements like new time signatures and feels.
