'Silenced by the Roar' is the first new song we have recorded and released since our 2016 debut album Tracks of Wire. We feel increasingly silenced by the government's "Crush the saboteurs" mentality and let down by 'piss poor politicians' who are unable to articulate a response to the failures of democracy and the big issues of our times.
"A protest against a stifling establishment..'Silenced by the Roar' matches a needling buzzsaw riff to lyrics that speak of the frustrations of British life in 2017 - essential" CLASH
"A stirring creation filled with an intense & necessary ferocity and might, that we all need now more than ever..cast your eyes upon the majestic punk fuelled power of deux furieuses" GIGLUTZ
"The track is Deux Furieuses’ roar of defiance, simmering with rage and despair: its shadowy menace has got elements in common with early PJ Harvey but cloaked in a much heavier atmosphere" GOD IS IN THE TV
"Visceral energy..punk sharp riffs..piano notes that gradually build over three-and-a-half minutes to a cracking close out" LITTLE INDIE BLOGS
"A choking and despairing claustrophobic post punk primed angular battle cry. In short does it for us. A hymn for what is decent, fair, just and right" THE SUNDAY EXPERIENCE
"Silenced by the Roar’ opens with the line 'If you dance with the devil, gonna get burned' and the kind of atmospheric guitar and drum work that makes the hairs on your neck stand up. The build and anticipation is overwhelming, almost suffocating as Ros sings 'Give me some hope'..This song is all about asking yourself questions, important questions, and preparing for the fight that is coming and that needs you on the front line" LISTEN WITH MONGER
"Gloriously noisy and sharply observant post-Brexit fury from two vital savages. This is an important band" Track of the Day TURN UP THE VOLUME
"Opening with a killer riff, this passionate and compelling song is a visceral fightback against 21st Century evils" KITMONSTERS
