Self Defense Family Release New Track “The Supremacy of Pure Artistic Feeling”




Self Defense Family have released a second track from their upcoming Run For Cover Records debut LP today on Talkhouse alongside an essay by vocalist Patrick Kindlon which dives into the complexities of the isolating nature of creativity. The track, titled “The Supremacy of Pure Artistic Feeling” is from the upcoming Have You Considered Punk Music which will be released on June 29, 2018. Pre-order for the album is currently available and Self Defense Family will tour the US with Sannhet this June (all tour dates below).

On their debut Run For Cover Records album, vocalist Patrick Kindlon asks the listener to take a close look alongside him at the bottomless drive to create that he’s spent his life exploring. “It’s about feeling very intensely about a thing you’re becoming increasingly aware the rest of the world doesn’t give a shit about,” says Kindlon. “It’s like how people feel about their cats: they love their cat, but you don’t give a shit about their cat.”
