Ahead of their new album Hatchet (out August 31), Hot Glue return with a new cut of emotional and raw slice of indie rock in the form of new single Roadkill, premiering on Pilerats today a day ahead of release.

Written by front-person Pearl Harnath, Roadkill was inspired by the relatable & heartbreaking situation of the end of a relationship that they’d tried everything to fix. Pearl explains “Roadkill feels like one of our angriest with its passive aggressive apologies and accusations. I wrote it at a time where I felt distance growing in a relationship that I had wanted to work really hard to fix. It’s all about abandonment and loneliness and the lengths you’ll go to when you want to convince someone to forgive you.”

With Pearl joined by sister Lily Harnath on bass and drummer Henry Lucas, their forthcoming album keeps things a family affair having, been mixed and mastered by Pearl & Lily’s father & industry mainstay Craig Harnath - who’s worked on projects from Aussie icons including Kylie Minogue and classic film The Castle.

Give Roadkill a listen before it releases everywhere tomorrow, and see below for details on Hot Glue’s Hatchet launch party in Melbourne.
