Sons Of An Illustrious Father are back with a new single “E.G.” where they rewire our brains into appreciating what we have and who we have in our lives. The song exudes a post-punk air where the riffs cut through the smoky echoes as the hypnotic vocals takes you through old memories and reiterate the lines of a mysterious poem by someone named E.G. Enjoy below:

“E.G.” is from the trio’s upcoming album Deus Sex Machina: Or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla, which will be out on June 1st. The choruses for “E.G.” are actually lines from the poem by E.G., which goes like this:

“Some have gold and high degrees

Have palaces and lands

I’ve but the roof that shelters me

And the one who understands.”

Interpret it as you want it, but we all can agree that it’s telling us to appreciate what we have and the people around us. Anyways, they will start touring soon:
