The Howlers release a hardcore new single, “Further Down The Line”


On October 5th, London’s desert rockers The Howlers released a new song, “ Further Down The Line.” The Howlers have received critical acclaim across the board for their wild live performances, rapidly surging as one of the UK’s must-see bands and gaining support from Official Charts UK, BBC Radio 1, The Independent, and many more. Peers and comparisons include Black Honey, The Amazons, and Miles Kane.

“Further Down The Line” kicks off with a catchy drum beat that sets the track up for success. A simplistic guitar rhythm, one that is a reworking of the exact guitar chord used in “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly,” comes in and elevates the song, while the lyrics get stuck in your head as Adam (vocalist) reveals that he is beginning to come to terms with what it means to grow up and mature as a person with the lyrics: “Move a little further down the line, move a little further down the line / Sometimes I feel I understand what it takes to make a boy a man.” Afterwards, the guitar solo that follows the chorus ties the track together. The track is self-reflective – as the lyrics talk about moving further down the line, the melody thrusts the song forward, suggesting the Western theme and implicating how the band has matured.

The Howlers state that “Further Down The Line” was a “landmark moment in their songwriting,” going on to say that, “Adam brought it into a session with Chris from Black Honey and laid down our demos in a day. It’s about that time in our lives when we realize that the grass isn’t always green, the coming of age period where you’re forming your identity at the same time as taking on the responsibilities of growing up.”

Adam from The Howlers said this about the meaning behind the song ” … I wasn’t happy and it showed, if it wasn’t for a boss I had at the time who pulled me aside one shift and said ‘Look you’re meant for more than this,’ I would probably still be in that cycle like most of those I grew up with still are. Just because something is difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible, [and] I’m eternally grateful he packed me off to a careers advisor that day on my lunch break and kicked my arse into gear to change my life. He made me go to night school, adjusting my shifts so I could get there on time and that eventually lead to uni, the first of my family to do that.”
