'Greasy Hotel'

King Nun have shared powerful new song 'Greasy Hotel' - tune in now.

The past 18 months have seen a growing awareness of conduct at live shows, in particular with regards to making them safe spaces for female fans.

Organisations such as Girls Against have highlighted the issue, with a number of bands also speaking out.

King Nun's new song 'Greasy Hotel' is based on an incident at one of their gigs, where a girl reported to the band that she had been "grabbed" by a male fan.

The striking new song speaks to itself, but here's a message from King Nun's frontman Theo...

"'Greasy Hotel' was written after we were told a girl had been grabbed during one of our shows. This was made worse by the fact the guy reporting it said she shouldn’t be there if she was concerned about this happening."

"I felt so angry and guilty I didn’t know what to do with myself. This was the first time we’d experienced anything like this and it was definitely a scary and eye opening experience for us. I wrote the first version in a couple of minutes. We wanted the lyrics in the chorus to stand out and I felt it was important for the audience to hear ‘Take your hands off of her’ mid set. The song serves as reminder of our stance on this, as well as helping to vent on what I feel is a really important issue."

Tune in now.
