Sean Dickson, lead singer, explains a little more of how the track, and the collaboration, came about:
“We were excited when we started seeing this mysterious slogan, “No Music on a Dead Planet” appearing, it really captured our imaginations and we wanted to find out a bit more about what it was all about. We looked up Music Declares Emergency and saw all the great work they are doing to increase awareness and help spread the word.
So we wrote a song together and used “No Music on a Dead Planet” as the title, it is the first song the band have written completely together which seemed fitting as it is clear the only way things are going to improve is by everybody working together, to try to improve things, bit by bit, decision by decision.
As a band we feel that music can help bring everybody together to address this critical issue at this critical moment in time, right now, before it’s too late.”
The video was shot underneath a submarine, in Scotland's beautiful West Coast, and sees the band joined by placard wielding family and friends just down the road from the nuclear base at Faslane, an irony not lost on all involved.
