The Hellfreaks Releases New Song “Hit Me Where It Hurts”
Budapest-based punk-metal band The Hellfreaks, consisting of Shakey Sue (vocals), Tamas Banhegyi (guitar), Gabor Domjan (bass) and Adam Szumper (drums), released a new song “Hit Me Where It Hurts” on January 12, 2023.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming fifth studio album “Pitch Black Sunset”, following “Old Tomorrows” released in 2021.
It was written by Gábor Domján, Zsuzsa Radnóti, and József Takács. The accompanying music video was directed by Péter Molnár.
The band said of the song, “’Hit Me Where It Hurts’ is about hope and despair. Hope is able to move mountains. But what if the desired dream stays a dream? Then hope turns to prison. Intoxicated by a desire that never comes true, we reach the dead end, where the brain clearly sees the way out, but our heart won’t let us make the necessary steps. All that’s left is suffering. This song is an invocation for the metaphorical punch to eliminate the last piece of false hope, the real culprit in such a situation.”
- The new album comprises 9-track and is set to be released on April 14, 2023.
It is their first project in three years since the 2020 album “God On The Run”.
The band said of the album, “Since our last album, our world around us has turned much darker than what we ever expected. Covid, war, inflation. Enough reasons for introspection to find out if there is any light left in us. An excursion between the best and worst parts in us. Pitch Black Sunset is about how these contraries interfere with each other: the past and the future, peace and chaos, eastern and western, life and death. This album invites you to a car ride straight into the canyon between these opposites. Does it end in a car crash? Sometimes. But we found beauty in it.”
