Lowlife have announced that they will release debut album Payday on 18 November via Hellcat Records.

The album finds Lowlife fusing 90’s hip-hop and alt rock with the sounds of 2000’s pop and punk bands.

Lowlife draw inspiration from a wide range of sources including the likes of Beastie Boys, Rancid and Bikini Kill.

Lowlife’s debut 13-track album Payday features the lead single Elon and latest single Sometimes, which samples a Black Sabbath 70’s demo.

Speaking about the latest single, Lowlife said, “SOMETIMES is about impulsiveness, and the irrational urge to act out.  We were listening to lots of N.E.R.D and loved how they blended rock and hip hop, so we sampled an early Black Sabbath demo thinking it would be easy to clear, turns out a Black Sabbath demo, is still a Black Sabbath song… it wasn’t easy for us to clear but we’re happy we did!”

The band put Payday together over a period of three years.  “We would meet up at the studio a couple days a week and just mess around and have fun,” the band reflects on the making of the album. “The only thing we were clear on is that we wanted to write the music that we wanted to hear and not to make music for any external validation. Whether it be fans, managers or record labels, we agreed that the best music comes from a place of sincerity and trusting your own artistic instincts.”
