Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the twelvth issue of RULE of THREE (bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Right on cue enter New Politicians with Been In The Wars. It’s a fabulous track with lots of really strong elements including a great vocal hook. When the chorus comes around it just lifts your spirits and in comes that guitar line again.This is sing-along brilliance that gets better with age. A timeless classic. Favorite track: Been in the Wars.

okkibox To me this is one of the most interesting discoveries of 2015 until now. I love their great talent of songwriting. This album definitely sounds better than the fifth and last Interpol album! Favorite track: The Idealist.

K K I have no doubt my favorite track will change over time. The album is dark and shimmering and beautiful. I love Drag a City and Alpha Decay, but this album feels like the band has really settled into their skin and their sound, and there's a shimmer to the melodies that is more developed on this album than on the previous EPs. There's not a weak song on here. Perfect album for late night listening. Favorite track: Cut a Hole.

Track Name: Revelator
Never one for a change of heart
Not my scene but I’ve played the part
In a cage of lions, just caged up liars
Face to face, limb by limb, east to west
I’ve always found that the spades dance best

I need a remedy to enlighten me
Of feelings and phases
Love that we’ve wasted
Your memory is a fantasy
The distance, the places
Oh how you’ve jaded
A lie to please, down on your knees
The savior in me can’t feel your disease

Number one under all the stars
Not my queen but you play the part
With the weight of diamonds, your contradiction incision
Time to live, time to lie
Let’s start a religion, a premonition division

Scars will run deep
In time they are a pawn
Scars will run deep
In time they are a pawn
They get you into trouble
And they do you harm
Scars will run deep
Yeah, in time they are a pawn
Track Name: Cut a Hole
Cross your heart hope you die falling into her
Sever ties bat those eyes, she's bulletproof
Winter comes and she's higher than the building tops
Love and pain, minds insane, hoped the hunting would stop
So you cut a hole too deep
Deep as the river that runs through the veins, she said to you

Lay me on the bed
Lie to me instead
Name you a thousand stars
Couldn't ever get that far
Light this all in flames
Burn the light of day
Misery fades to grey
She will lure your soul away

She will stun, no way out, you're on the run
She has the perfect touch, gives it up, now you're the one
In relation to her carousel mascaraed
Is it what you show or what you say?
So you cut a hole too deep
Deep as the river that runs through the veins, she said to you
Track Name: Been in the Wars
You gave her a pulse
She gave you a heartache
Yet out of all these faces
You still see her ghost
In your dreams

And with every step you take
All the moves you make
We’ve been here before
You’ve been in the wars
With the wait to find that our

Love is a war we wage
Filled with the words we hate
Promises not the same
Even though she’s miles away

The battle was won
You sailed through the oceans
Yet out of all these places
She still holds the sun
In her hands

Love is a war we wage
Filled with the words we hate
Endings to make you see
Scenes they weren’t meant to be
Promises not the same
Even though she’s miles away
Track Name: Images
Sound the alarm
Color swarms below
A calm before the storm
The faintest memories
You call out to your post
The father, son, holy ghost

Her potions seem to settle
Her position in the middle of it all

Just shattered images
Broken dreams that lay ahead
And in all of the ways that she lusts, a misguided mystery
Of shattered images
Broken dreams that lay ahead
And it's all of the ways that she bends that keep you diving into her seas

She is something you can't diagnose
The sounds, the pictures, the prose
You couldn't make it any farther
You've been treading under water

Sticks and stones will break your bones
Words they hurt like hell
She talked too soon, she picked and spooned
Yet you're underneath her spell

It's all of the pictures she's painted
All of the pictures she's painted
I paint myself
I hate myself
I paint myself
I paint myself out
Track Name: Killer on the Mend
Killer on the mend
Clouds beyond the bend
So cold
Shapes in maps, love condemned
She glows
Satellite a far
Silver lining star
In bold
Shapes in maps, love condemned
She glows

Killer on the mend
So cold
Satellite a far
She glows
Track Name: Remission
I am the machine, I am a setting sun left unseen
Filter the light away bound by Eden where we stay
Existence is melody, are you the enemy?
Weathered my sympathy is this the end of me?
I am the obscene I am a void between truth and deceit
Plan the same escape, awake in a mine field full of pain
We are all dead or dying, just about to die in the end, theme for a pen
Lonesome is the heart awaiting your feral embrace, fatal disdain

Just so you know
Baby I will let you down
Have the record show
Maybe you would let me drown
Should’ve told you so
Before I could break you down, now
Just let me go
Surely I will lay you then let you down

I am the machine, I am a monument kept unclean
Existence is melody, are you the enemy?
Weathered my empathy is this the end of me?
I am the obscene, I am an artifact left by disease
Always the same mistake, a day in the life when our sins wash away
We are an entity, a vile lament, a broken compound to weigh my soul down
If ignorance is bliss then I must confess and come clean before it sinks me

Among the stars in the sky, you are the moon in my eyes
Lay me down in the sun, dig our graves one by one
Into the ground we shall lay, enshrine the vows that we made
Say the words stay on track ‘til our hearts fade to black
I’ll climb up to the heavens, pull god down from his throne
Mistletoe, so you know we will stay gold forever
I’ll climb up to the heavens, pull god down from his throne
Slit his throat, so you know, we will, we will
Track Name: The Idealist
From beginning of time love consuming my mind
For you always, for you in the all the ways
You’ve been living the lie, you feel you’ve defined
Veer the soulless, invent the soul less
Insignificant ways that we bare ourselves to waste
Break before the bend, fall before the land

Faintly sensitive
Well I’m made for that
Through the muck and the mire
This love will inspire

Go find a better man
Then you will seek
And be deceived
Just know you’re the only one
In my dreams
I perceive

Romance the sentiment, fearless in your lament
Find the meaningless, find a meaning with less
Lie still within the pain, idle hands will change fate
We are the only ones, we are the lonely ones
From beginning of time love consuming my mind
For you always, for you in all the ways

Faintly sensitive
Well I’m made for that
Through the much and the mire
This love will expire

You were cynical, you were mine
You are magical, here in time
You are beautiful in my mind
You were whimsical
You were, you were
