Hear STATIC DRESS' soaring new post-hardcore single "crying"

Leeds quartet step into latest era

UK post-hardcore upstarts Static Dress have stepped away from their Rouge Carpet Disaster and into a new era, having just delivered their first piece of music in 2024. The band's emotionally-charged return is called "crying."

The new track takes cues from the soaring, melodic aesthetic of their 2023 debut full-length, with the band marking "crying" with in-the-red melancholy and a mix of screamed-and-sung vocals between frontperson Ollie Appleyard and bassist George Holding.

As for the video, it finds a corpse-painted, crimson-domed Appleyard and the rest of the band spin-kicking through a subterranean jungle full of decidedly fetal flora, and it only gets weirder from there. You can see the rest of the video's Christ allegories, media frenzies, Vaseline-lensed genital-blurring, and jagged glass-clutching moments up above.

It's unclear at the moment if Static Dress are issuing "crying" as a standalone single, or as part of a sophomore follow-up to Rouge Carpet Disaster. The band did, however, precede the official single drop with an interactive puzzle that yielded 300 fans a limited-edition vinyl flexi-disc of "crying."

What is confirmed is that Static Dress will be out on the road with Underoath for much of the year. You'll find their run of global support dates below.
