New Cock Sparrer 7″ “Here We Stand” b/w “We’re Alright Now” Available Everywhere Now

Happy Release Day to the legendary Cock Sparrer! The lads’ new 7″ single for “Here We Stand” is officially available everywhere fine records are sold TODAY!

With the spectacular third single off the band’s incredible LP Hand on Heart on the A-side, this record is the ONLY place you’ll hear the vinyl-exclusive B-side “We’re Alright Now“!

Here We Stand” is a phrase has come up more than once in Cock Sparrer’s illustrious history, both as an LP title and in song lyrics. But what does the phrase mean to them?

“It pretty much sums us up,” says guitarist Daryl Smith. “We’ve always been the outsiders, the underdogs…We’ve always felt very protective of others in the same situation and it’s basically us saying that ‘we’re here for you.’”

The vinyl-exclusive B-side “We’re Alright Now” is described as having “a 1970s bootboy stomp feel.” Daryl says, “[It] basically celebrates the fact that we grew up in the era we did…that you can’t judge the past by today’s standards. However, you also need to be mindful of change, not ignorant about it.”

As for why release a 7” as opposed to another successful digital single? In the band’s own words, “We come from an era where the humble 7” was just as important as an LP. More so sometimes…we really wanted to make sure that we marked the LP with an official 7” that was released worldwide via our 3 record labels.”

Here We Stand” b/w “We’re Alright Now” is available in the USA from the Pirates Press Records webstore and is shipping NOW, on 7” Blood Red Vinyl with Black Splatter. Grab your copy there or from your favorite record store while they last!

Customers in the UK should order from Captain Oi! / Cherry Red Records, and those in Europe from Randale Records. Each label will have an exclusive vinyl color.
