RedHook: Off With Your Head

Sydney based alt-rock band RedHook has released a new song to feature on their upcoming album 'Postcard From a Living Hell'.


'Off With Your Head' is a crushing, politically-charged rap-metal rave monster powered by venomous lyrics that rage against various types of mob-fuelled injustice, from the conservative war on women's bodies to the dark side of cancel culture.


Singer Emmy Mack explains the inspiration behind the track:


"I wrote the lyrics to 'Off With Your Head' at a time when I was feeling overwhelmed, appalled, and devastated by a number of horrifying injustices going on in the world around me. Over in the US, the overturning of Roe v. Wade robbed women and girls of the fundamental right to make informed decisions about their own bodies, the consequences of which I, along with many others, knew would be deadly and devastating. While in my own backyard, I watched on in horror as cancel culture was weaponised by a sick person with a cruel vendetta to destroy an innocent woman I loved and admired. I felt sick with anger, and powerless to do anything about it, so I poured everything I had into this song."



The song starts with a heavy alternative rock beat. The range of singer Emmy Mack is astonishing to listen to as she varies from deep screams to a powerful vocal. There is an aspect to the song which has the capability to grab any listeners attention and force them to listen to the meaningful lyrics behind the heavy rock.


RedHook will support the release of 'Off With Your Head' with their biggest national headlining tour yet, presented by triple j. The band will be visiting fans across 11 regional and metro stages in Jinibara/Maroochydore, Meanjin/Brisbane, Jellurgal/Burleigh Heads, Goomburrup/Bunbury, Boorloo/Perth, Tandanya/Adelaide, Ngunnawal/Canberra, Naarm/Melbourne, Dharawal/Wollongong, Mulubinba/Newcastle and Eora/Sydney this April and May, with support from Bad/Love, Belle Haven and Grenade Jumper. Tickets available HERE.
