New Cock Sparrer Video & Single “Here We Stand” Streaming Today! Pre-Order the 7″ with the Exclusive B-side “We’re Alright Now!”

As we all know, news doesn’t get much bigger than new music from the legendary Cock Sparrer!

With anticipation at a fever pitch for the band’s upcoming final studio album Hand on Heart and the first two digital singles “With My Hand on My Heart” and “I Belong To You” racking up hundreds of thousands of streams, the time has come to release a proper 7” for the third single, “Here We Stand.” Not only that, the 7” features the B-side “We’re Alright Now,” which is exclusive to this 7”!

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 for pre-order in the USA from the Pirates Press Records webstore NOW, and will ship approximately April 26th, on 7” Blood Red Vinyl with Black Splatter. 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.

The band have also released a video for “Here We Stand,” and the song is available to stream/download on all major platforms NOW!
