Meat Wave are constantly being asked about their name, but they get why you would. Pulled from a classic headline in The Onion, the Chicago-based trio will release their new album Delusion Moon via new home SideOneDummy Records on September 18.

Delusion Moon is a record that works as one interlocking piece. Focusing on lunar cycles and the concept of moon sickness [nb: it’s the dark side of the moon, yes, but not as you know it], Meat Wave put themselves in other peoples’ shoes and attempt to work through the insanity of our modern world. It’s a record that’s varied, versatile and endlessly venomous, from the agitation and unease of ‘Network’ and ‘Cosmic Zoo’ to the snarky social commentary of ‘The Gay Contempt’.
Ultimately, Delusion Moon is a cunning satire – an attempt to find clarity among the madness, sucking everyone in and uniting them all in the way only this band can.
