Liverpool trio Salt The Snail, have finally released a studio version of fan favourite from gigs, ‘Lazer Quest’.
Opening with sharp riffs and a pounding beat, ‘Lazer Quest’ is a tense track from Salt The Snail. It’s thrilling and moves at a quick pace, no wonder it’s been a fan favourite when it comes up on the set list.
Frontman Krystian Snail said about ‘Lazer Quest’; “‘Lazer Quest’ is a live favourite that snail fans have been asking to be released for a long time. It is a track born out of frustration at a world of fake news and political spin, drowning in online content to the point where it is hard to know who to follow and what to believe.
“Sometimes it feels like it’s easier to just get back in your box and be the quiet, little consumer you’re supposed to be, confused into submission.”
You can feel the tension that Krystian talks about on the new track. The heavy melody, along with the feeling of being swarmed by so much information that it’s hard to know what’s fake or real. It’s a track that builds and builds in an angst-filled whirlwind two minutes.
The chorus sees Krystian sing repeatedly “hit me with your lasers, your lasers, your lasers…”, which could be misconstrued for “hit me with your latest” and in all honesty, it’d be just as appropriate.
Salt The Snail’s video to accompany the new single is a whacky Hunger Games meets 80s Arnold Schwarzenegger film The Running Man. Set in a laser quest building, a group of people are locked in and warned the only way to win is not to die.
The video features cameos from other Liverpool acts such as SPQR, while each person faces a grizzly end till there’s only one left standing.
Check out the video below and see who makes it out alive and who meets their end.
To celebrate the release of ‘Lazer Quest’, Salt the Snail are hosting a single launch night appropriately, in Liverpool’s Area 51 Lazer Quest. A unique setting, the band will take over the lazer quest on Friday October 26th.
After their single launch on Friday night, the band hit the road taking on the rest of the UK.
‘Lazer Quest’, the new single from Salt the Snail, is out now.
