The Empty Threats are a queer post-punk band based out of Adelaide, Australia. Their latest single, "Evil Eye," is an absolutely epic post-punk power ballad. The song is more along the lines of a band like Interpol than more classic artists of the genre, but there is an odd sense of menace to "Evil Eye" that you don't truly get with Interpol. Stu Patterson's vocals are more crooning than you'd typically expect with any form of punk, but that somehow adds to the edge of the song. It's an oddly charming song that has a chorus that is sure to embed itself into your mind for days to come.
You can listen to "Evil Eye" below. Monster Truck Mondays is due out June 22 on P.A.K Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on The Empty Threats, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
