This is the second single from the upcoming album “Ruin Everything” which hopefully will be released later this year (planned date December 2024).

The track is about a sudden change in direction upon a realisation whilst travelling to work on a daily basis . As per the 1st single ‘The Fear Inside ‘ this track is also a lighter approach to HEDRA’s usual style but with a slightly less commercial arrangement in sounds and, was previously released as a demo on the 2022 E.P. The Pecking Order mixed by Kozi Studios by Hedra’s original bassist at the time, this now revamped version produced at inner sound audio by Sam & Joe Graves the new sound gives us the punch it needed for release. 

 “This song is dedicated to the people that go to work for pittance, the ones that struggle for their arts, emphasis on the song was to tell people that we have to ‘get going’ if we’re going to make a difference, if something doesn’t work then try something new ‘try plant the seed’, those words came about from watching a friend take a sudden interest in plants and environmental input, after constantly pointing out a poor working environment he decided to change it” says Jim Marten (Vocalist)

Novacaine Rating: 9/10 - "Love Hedra, and I am so excited to hear the new album later this year!"

About Hedra:

Formed in 2014 by guitarist Kamil Korsak with Jim Marten on vocals, Hedra released their first EP, Mind Dimension in 2016.

The band lineup has been through various changes in the intervening years, but with JamesRedden joining in 2022 to bash the skins and Daniel Older taking over bass duties in 2023, Hedra are on a mission to bring their music to every corner of the UK and beyond.

With influences ranging from Iron Maiden to Muse to Soundgarden to Mastodon, the unmistakable and individual sound which conjures images of dark dystopian times makes Hedra stand out from the crowd while also appealing to those outside of the metal sphere.

The band have a strong work ethic and an insatiable hunger to perform live, entertain, share their music, and help the metal scene become stronger and more open to everyone. Passionate performances captivate audiences, with the camaraderie displayed by the band adding to the overall sense of belonging. Marten is an assured and commanding frontman who rides the waves created by Korsak and Older’s intricate guitars and Redden’s drums; always leaving a crowd wanting more.

Hedra have released numerous singles and two further EPs since Mind Dimension, Polaris in July 2022 and The PeckingOrder in November 2022. Each EP the band has released has been based on themes that tell a story. The most recent release centres around the handling of the pandemic.

Hedra won band of the year for their performance at Mearfest Flame 2nd Sep 2023 which was one of the many highlights of 2023.
