Sydney’s alt-rock outfit Mac The Knife are thrilled to announce the release of their highly anticipated new EP, ‘In The Shadow of It All,’ out today. The electrifying five-track collection coincides with the launch of their national tour, which kicks off tonight in Wollongong.

Mac The Knife delve into the complexities of human connection and communication on ‘In The Shadow Of It All,’ with the soaring lead single Flee setting the tone for the introspective journey.

Flee explores the agonising frustration of a breakdown in communication, when words fail us and the weight of unspoken thoughts hangs heavy. The song delves into the paralysing fear of stage fright and the desperate yearning to find the right words to mend a broken connection.

Here’s what the band has to say about the single: “Flee is a song about the power and limitations of words,” says vocalist Bryn Chapman Parish. “We wanted to capture that feeling of being completely lost for words, when your thoughts are scattered and you can’t seem to form a coherent sentence. It’s a relatable experience for anyone who’s ever struggled with expressing themselves, whether it’s due to stage fright, social anxiety, or simply a heated argument.”

The ‘In The Shadow Of It All’ EP also includes familiar anthems Less Than Familiar, Labour In Vain, Blood of My Blood and Curb My Bite with fresh explorations of earlier singles by Barley Passable and LLUX. It’s a mix for both die-hard fans and newcomers, offering a journey through the band’s sound with exciting twists.

Don’t miss Mac The Knife live as they bring ‘In The Shadow Of It All’ to stages across Australia! Catch them on tour kicking off tonight in Wollongong.
