COCK SPARRER have pertnered up with New Noise Magazine to release their new melodic jam called “Every Step Of The Way”, taken from the band’s upcoming album Forever, out April 21st through Pirates Press Records (US), Randale Records (EU), and Chase The Ace Records (UK). It is included as a GREEN flexi record in subscription copies of their latest issue, and will be available as a WHITE promo flexi as well, included in all Pirates Press Records vinyl mailorders as of April 24th, while supplies last. Check it out below, grab your copy of the mag HERE and scroll down to see the band’s upcoming tour dates.

This full length, their sixth, in 45 years as a band, truly exemplifies how incredible and how special this band is. One would assume that this is the last full length that we will see from these legends; and a fitting one it is indeed. These best friends wear their hearts on their sleeves, and bring an intensity and emotional component to everything that they do – whether it is recording new tracks, or getting on stage to thoroughly impress thousands of fans with their incomparable and truly spectacular live performances.

The band offered the following:

“This is a song about hope. No matter what the situation is there’s always hope and you just have to tap into the positive spirit within you. Each verse describes a desperate situation ranging from young kids fighting in wars, someone going to prison and finally being told that you have a life threatening illness and having to tell your family and friends. But in each scenario there’s ‘something’ which is by your side and which will help you cope. Some people use religion, others believe in guardian angels, some people have the power of community or being in a close family or gang to give them strength to deal with whatever shit life throws at them. But ultimately you’re responsible for your own actions and this song is about the inner strength that can pull you through tough times.”

UPDATE, April 19th – another new song premiered! Listen to ‘Contender’ right here:

The band commented:

We all know a person that has ‘something about them’, the potential to ‘make it’ or at least have a good crack at doing so. Unfortunately many of those people ruin it by treating people like shit. It’s when their confidence turns into arrogance. There’s no need for it. We’ve no time for people like that. Treat people the way you expect to be treated yourself.
