British rock group Massive Wagons just unveiled a new single and video called “Billy Balloon Head”! The song comes from the group’s forthcoming recording, Full Nelson, which is slated for an August 10th release via Earache Records. Check out the video above and pre-order a copy of the twelve-track album on limited edition signed CD and vinyl, or via iTunes, including 3 instant song downloads.
“Billy Balloon Head” follows the first two singles, “China Plates” and “Under No Illusion”, and once again sees the group focus on important social issues, this time the growing prevalence of intolerance, ignorance and racism. Frontman Baz Mills commented as follows:
“I really have no idea if the term “balloon head” is one used anywhere else in the world but where I’m from. Maybe it is, I don’t know - but if you’re a balloon head then as far as I’m concerned, you’re the sort of person with nothing much in the way of being nice, being tolerant, being open-minded, or having much going on upstairs full stop. The song’s a stab at racists and ignorant people. I’ve no time for it; be nice or fuck off. That, in a roundabout way, is what ‘Billy Balloon Head’ is all about. If you’re gonna be a twat, fuck off and be a twat somewhere else, on your own. Bottom of the sea preferably.”
