Outrage! Is Now

Album: Outrage! Is Now (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Outrage! Is Now finds Stephen Grainger fatigued by contemporary reactionary culture, where people bicker on social media over the smallest thing.

    "The mainstream is an outraged, radical thing," he told The Independent. "It's not a fringe, underground, counter movement. It's just the way things are. And there are a lot of really substantial reasons to be outraged but also a lot of stupid reasons to feel that way. If you're using that energy for every single thing, and every day, it's exhausting. It used to be every week but it's every day now that there's a new thing people assume expertise in and have an opinion on. And it's like, how could you possibly have such a strong opinion on something you just learned about today?"
