The EP, which shares a name with the title track, was written out of anger from watching Donald Trump’s journey to the White House.Guitarist Stew Page said: “The song is Spring Parks’ middle finger to the Republican nominee and the things he stands for.“In the song we try to get the message across that despite having all the money in the world true power lays with the people.” The EP also features the tracks Dark Side.The four-track EP was recorded and produced by the band and mixed by Ed Sokolowski at EAS studios. Bassist Ant said: “This was the first song that we all had a part in the writing process and it’s probably our favourite song to play live.The EP also includes the tracks Shipwrecks and Cease Fire.“I wrote the lyrics to Cease Fire as our tribute to the young Syrian refugee Alan Kurdi who was found washed up on a beach in 2015,” explains Page. “It’s our protest song and our stand against war.”The EP artwork shows various Star Wars ships and the Death Star blowing up a giant TV displaying an image of Trump.Spring Park play The Bear in Northampton on Friday, November 18.
