FEWS needed to take a breather.
Well, wouldn't you? The band's live shows - frenetic, visceral, pulled taut with outrage and meaning - are hard enough to even look at, let alone participate in.
Decamping to the Swedish city of Malmö, FEWS have constructed a new base in a new town, and it's put some air back into their lungs.
New single 'Business Man' is the explosive return, a grinding, punk-driven piece of guitar noize, completely unrelenting in its approach.
Maxim Kelly directs the video, matching shots of FEWS in the rehearsal room against a trawl through the city's outskirts.
He explains: "Anyone who has had the pleasure of watching FEWS live will attest to the veracity of their live performance. The intention was to create a straightforward, confident and authentic video for 'Business Man'. Trying to capture the energy of that stage performance combined with a snapshot of everyday life in Malmö and a more intimate view of their off-stage personalities."
Check it out now.
Catch FEWS at Boston Music Room, London on October 26th.
