Independent punk rock band Lost in Society is presenting its own state of the union address in its latest single.

The band debuted the video for its latest single ‘We Want Change‘ Thursday.  The song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming EP Love and War, which is scheduled for release Oct. 2 through Wiretap Records.

The video features the song’s lyrics in large, bold font against a backdrop consisting of footage of protests and civil unrest that has happened across America throughout the nation’s history.  The combined lyrical and visual presentation is meant to help translate the song’s sociopolitically charged message.

Front man Zach Moyle talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“’We Want Change’ basically encapsulates our current frustration and outrage at what is going on in our country right now,” he said. “We’re seeing a system that supports violence against marginalized groups and doesn’t hold their peers accountable for their actions. This song is a call to not be silenced, or intimidated. We stand with these movements as allies, and this is our way of showing our support.”

The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single will appeal to fans of bands, such as The Distillers and American Television with its gritty vocals and equally grinding guitars, bass and solid time keeping.

‘We Want Change’ is available to stream and download here.

In related news, Lost in Society is scheduled to perform a live streaming show at 6 p.m. Sept. 13 though the official Facebook page of the Blue Bird Theater.  The band’s performance is presented through AEG.

Bassist Nick Ruroede had the following to say of how the show came to be:

“One of our buddies in Denver reached out to us and mentioned Bluebird was doing these cool Livestreams so he ended up connecting us and we were able to put something together,” he said. “Like everyone else we miss playing live so we’re pretty excited for a full band live stream.”
