“’Gently’ was written from the perspective of someone with nothing left to lose and yet is forced to question their own motives and decisions“, explains vocalist, James Jest. “The narrative was purposefully left open to interpretation in order to allow more morally grey aspects of the song to shine through.”

Produced, mixed and mastered by Justin Hill (ex Sikth), this upcoming album release by Outright Resistance was recorded at Whitehouse Studios in Reading and Unit 2 Studio in Wembley.
‘Cargo Cult’ seeks to highlight the more negative aspects of modern life. Striving to capture your attention from start to finish with an unapologetic sense of urgency, this album attempts to explore personal themes such as mental health, isolation, and alienation as well as issues that impact us everyday as a society (social media and war for example).
Speaking about ‘Cargo Cult’, the band say, “In a time when media is consumed at a greater volume and faster pace than ever before, we want to challenge the notion of “disposable media” with ideas that we hope will keep listeners coming back for more.”
‘Cargo Cult’ by Outright Resistance is released 1st March 2019.

About Outright Resistance:
Priding themselves on writing songs that aren’t only heavy, but also make you want to bang your head while you listen, Outright Resistance are a 5-piece metal band created in Stevenage, Hertfordshire in 2011. Birthed on the drive and determination to bring the glory days back to the metal scene, Outright Resistance have released two EP’s to date. Extensive tours followed these releases, leading to appearances at Bloodstock Open Air 2016, headlining the Friday night of Beermageddon 2017, and as of more recently – touring Russia as main support to Arch Enemy, alongside 2 headline UK tours. With a recent vocal change in the line-up, the band are now looking to set a statement with the upcoming release of their debut album ‘Cargo Cult’, produced and mixed by Justin Hill (Sikth) in 2019. Building on their previous foundations, their first single from the new album ‘Fang And Bone’ is a sonic punch to the face, giving just a taste of what can be expected from the release; drawing a variety of broad influences. Now with no worries or inhibitions holding them back, the band embark on a journey with eleven brand new tracks. But that’s not what this record is about. It’s about looking ahead, and not staring in the rear-view mirror.
