It has been said that 2022 is the year of the RXPTR, and if the beginning months of this year are anything to go by, then it’s safe to say that this is definitely the case. UK rockers RXPTRS have been busting out some top-of-the-range singles recently in the build up to their debut album “Living Without Death’s Permission”.
The singles are best described as being full of energy, wild, unpredictable, but insanely catchy. Their EP that was released earlier this year, “Rock Bottom (Is a Stepping Stone)”, is a tantalizing and promising display of what’s to come. The four tracks all have their own personality, yet still tie into that contagious and powerful identity that RXPTRS embodies.
In the lead-up to their debut album, Sonic Perspectives writer Josh Muncke interrupted their evening at the Ill Repute, a local favorite pub of theirs, to pull apart “Living Without Death’s Permission”. Discussing their musical influences, navigating a new writing process during lockdowns, and the intense accident that almost left vocalist Simon Roach decapitated, there was definitely a lot to delve into.
