Following the release of their stunning “Image of an Image” video, Greek hardcore punk band Ruined Families brings yet another adrenaline-filled, Situationist-inspired music video to our screens. The 1:45 minutes rager “We Want Everyting” is a call to arms for total self-determination and liberation of desires. (See song explanation and lyrics below)
‘Education’ LP will be out on November 24th on Adagio830. Pre-order is already available in various options/bundle at Bis Aufs Messer’s mailorder! An in-depth interview with Ruined Families will appear on our website just in time for its official release, so keep an eye on.
Once again compiled by Thanos Mitsios, the video of “We Want Everything” is the appendage of a two-piece series of video clips off their new record; while the song itself is pretty unequivocal in its essence:
Stranded by global disarray, we are trying to find ways to navigate in a world that looks increasingly complex and dangerous. Despite loss and defeat, we are fuelled with rage and spite while seeking possible lines of escape.
We do not pursue a return to any version of an idealized past; we desire real change. We want to construct visions of the future that are more inclusive and equal for all. Our volatile bodies act as barriers and battlefields. We may be ugly and strange, but we are determined.
The old world is in front of us. We want everything.
No country explains what human means
as borders remove our basic needs
With commodified sexuality
my body is a battlefield
and the news report a serious accident
I’m like you, but totally different
I’m like you
But, I shoplift desire
from the markets of pleasure
dreaming of errors
right where perfection explodes
Justice vanished as it appeared
There’s no high or low
I’m sick of choices, cause I want it all
This is here and now
