It's a forceful teaser from their new EP...

It's all-change for Children Of The State.

The band fully based themselves in Manchester recently, a move that allowed them to take stock of their creativity.

New EP 'Tragic Carpet And The Magical Wasp Gang From Notre Dame' is the result, recorded in sessions at Liverpool's Parr Street and Elevator Studios.

Overseen by The Coral's Ian Skelly, it's led by bold, barbed new single 'Hot Money', a title that feels wholly apt at this time.

Emerging with a swagger, it fuses together careering post-punk elements with a rhythm born from club culture, akin to 'Bummed' era Happy Mondays reborn in 2k20.

Say the band, it's “a sleazy observation of greed and hyper-capitalism with a German bridge which describes cash as the science of the entire world...”

We've grabbed the video, which - if anything - is even more outspoken, even more defiant than the lyrics themselves.

Tune in now.
