Dead Now

Album: Pedestrian Verse (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Scott Hutchison explained to The Skinny magazine that this soul-tinged clap-along, "is a four minute version of the (usually) flippant statement 'I wish I was dead.'" He added: "Not many people genuinely do wish for that, but I know how it feels to wonder about the relief that the nothingness would bring. I imagine no noise, no light. Fu--ing nothing. Maybe a drip feed of single malt whisky though, if I'm lucky enough to get punted down to Hell."
