Brighton punks THE BAR STOOL PREACHERS have released new single and video for ‘Lighthouse Keeper’.
‘Lighthouse Keeper’ is the third single off their upcoming new album ‘Above The Static,’ which is out the 31st March via Pure Noise Records.
Speaking about the new single ‘Lighthouse Keeper’ frontman Tom McFaull said “Vulnerable, beautiful and moving. Recorded live on it’s first take, Lighthouse Keeper may well be the most beautiful song the Bar Stool Preachers ever create. Guaranteed to bring even the hardest of hearts to their knees with it’s life affirming message of strength, and individuality. Lighthouse Keeper is a song for everybody, and heralds the importance of acceptance, patience and kindness in a world that is so often cruel and quick to conformity. Whatever you want to do, do it. Whoever you want to be, be it. Live proud, live loud, and know that you are so, so loved. It takes more strength to be yourself in a world that demands perfection, than any version that somebody else wants you to be, so be yourself, because that’s enough.”
With help from some talented friends: Kevin Bivona (The Interrupters), Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphy’s/Flogging Molly) and Ben Hannah (Nosebleed), the band are back bringing you their latest collection of chest-pumping, fist-raising, soul-saving songs, in their unique brand of party music. The album is called ‘Above the Static’ and whilst being a beautiful collection of raucous rock and roll, dancing ska and huge heartfelt punk anthems, it’s also a lifeline to anyone else who feels like they’re drowning in static in the modern age. Described as having the “perfect blend of intelligent punk anthems and poignant, unsentimental love songs, combined with the most infectious music you’ll hear this decade”, this album and these shows are long awaited, and not something you’re gonna want to miss. With pre-order starting January 2023, there’s never been a better chance to join the Bar Stool Preachers on their meteoric rise to becoming a household name.
