The new album by Stockholm post-punk hero's Viagra Boys was produced by Matt Sweeney (Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Run the Jewels), Justin and Jeremiah Raisen (Yves Tumor, Kim Gordon, Sky Ferreira) as well as past collaborators Pelle Gunnerfeldt and Daniel Fagerström.

Ever the band drenched in satire, they return with their brand of horn-filled, searing post-punk and rejection of standard genre trope's to deftly lay waste to society's normalization of toxic masculinity, racism, misogyny, classism, and self-obsession. Even the album's title has a layer of satirical depth; the transliteration from Swedish of the term used for the government's financial support of jazz musicians cuts to the quick of institutionalized classism and prioritization.

"I'm not good at talking about politics, but everything is political when it comes down to it," explains singer Sebestions Murphy. "I'd rather write a song about being defeated, which usually comes from a real place and says a lot."
