Genre-pushing punks Oxymorrons have announced their highly anticipated album, Melanin Punk, which is set to be released on October 20th via Mascot Records. The band have also released the third taster of the album with single Graveyard Words,”. The song demonstrates the bands diversity as they seamlessly traverse styles and dynamics from punk, emo and pop punk to hip hop and electronic influenced sounds all in under 3 mins with some huge sing-a-long moments to boot. Oxymorrons are an exciting prospect in the alternative landscape and with the new album set to feature collaborations with Hyro the Hero, Kid Bookie, Troi Irons, KANNER and Netic it shows that they aren’t afraid to cross musical boundaries and open doors for future fans and bands alike.

When asked about the inspiration behind “Graveyard Words”, Oxymorrons collectively explained, “It’s about speaking with intentions. Words carry weight and you can manifest positivity but also negativity with the things you say – on the extreme side of the spectrum it could cost you your life. It’s about the laws of attraction through words. The chorus sounds like a threat coming from an individual – like ‘yo watch yer mouth or I’ll f*ck you up’ – but it was really written from the perspective of the universe/karma warning us humans. A small example is we try not to use the word ‘hate’ in our vocabulary when describing something we don’t like. We’re not always successful, but just trying to remove that word so that we don’t attract hatred into our life and leave that portal open for hate to come through. You attract what you project, and we project positivity.”
