Gen and the Degenerates release debut single 'Underwear'

Underground rockers, Gen and the Degenerates strut into place as they release exuberant debut single Underwear.

London, 23rd April 2021 Underground rockers, Gen and the Degenerates strut into place as they release exuberant debut single Underwear. A track that represents the bands refusal to conform, a voice for the unheard and a statement that represents everything they have to offer; it’s fast paced, gritty and everything you need to listen to right now.

The single is a proclamation of unbridled sexuality and attraction, something that comes from vocalist Gen Degenerate’s rejection of labels and societal pressures. Commenting on the track Gen said ‘Underwear’ is our loud, proud statement of Intent. I wrote those lyrics for all those, like myself, who are sick of letting others define their identity and their relationships. It’s a rallying cry to everyone who wants to be defined on their own terms. Our anthem for a generation of lovers, fighters and degenerates. I can’t wait to hear the words “I don’t care what’s in your underwear” screamed back at me at shows, it’s going to be a liberating moment.” A cathartic track, Gen and the Degenerates loudly deliver ‘Underwear’ with all the attitude and intensity it warrants in a feisty performance video.

Having signed to Marshall Records earlier in the year, Underwear marks the band’s first release with the label. Bringing the grit of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with the Rock n Roll spirit of The Struts, the band are making a commitment to the sound and music that they’re making, promising to keep it loud, live and with a clear point of view. 

The empowering track will also be available on a limited red 7” vinyl out on June 25th alongside the band’s second single. The vinyl can be pre-ordered here. http://genandthedegenerates.com/ 

Gen and the Degenerates will also tour the UK in the Autumn, working with indie promoter This Feeling who have previously championed the likes of Red Rum Club, Saint Agnes and more. Tickets on sale 10am from www.thisfeeling.co.uk/genandthedegenerates
