Rock/Pop-punk duo Good Guy Dies will in November release a song against domestic violence.
Titled “Hit Me Back”, the single is based on a story of a relationship which spirals into domestic violence and confronts the idea that love can be expressed in a relationship through violence.
This particular belief is rife through many Eastern European relationships as testified by the Russian saying: “if he hits me, he loves me”. This song encourages women all over the world to stop hiding their abuse.
Good Guy Die are a fresh new act on the UK music scene, who powerfully protest against injustice and discrimination.
Made up of Latvian vocalist Cherry Makej, and guitarist Joe Hodgson from Northern Ireland, the pair have spent the past two years perfecting their sound and style.
Their album was produced by George De Angelis (Seal, Rod Stewart, LeAnn Rimes).
Good Guy Dies’ music is an eclectic fusion of sounds and genres – classic rock and punk pop, synthesized with elements of electronica, underpinned by thunderous driving beats.
Cherry’s powerful yet sultry vocals are complemented by Joe’s punchy guitar playing with a profusion of razor-sharp riffs. They deliver compelling and electrifying live performances and their stage persona oozes charisma and attitude.
De Angelis, Ivor Novello award winning songwriter and producer said: “I really enjoyed producing the Good Guy Dies album. They have some really great songs and what I like is that they're not scared to tackle subject matter that other bands either wouldn't think of, or would be too scared to talk about. I’m thinking particularly of "Hit Me Back" and "Whether She Wants It Or Not". I also love the fact that they're always up for experimentation and are always seeking a unique direction; something which gives me great latitude on the production side of things.”
‘Hit Me Back’ will be release on Friday 14th November.
