Palaye Royale unleashed “Fucking With My Head,” “Nervous Breakdown” and “Hang On To Yourself” throughout 2019. The band closed out the year with the most political song of their career, “Massacre, The New American Dream.”

Guitarist Sebastian Danzig revealed the name of the latest track in an interview with AltPress where the band discussed the upcoming album.

“We’re actually focused on things that are happening in our lives and everyone else’s lives around us,” he reveals. ‘Massacre, The American Dream’ is like that: We’re writing about gun violence and things actually happening in the world, thinking that we can have a small voice in this really big world. If we have a little bit of a voice, we’re going to use it.”
