Bob Vylan have released a new single, Health Is Wealth, taken from their forthcoming Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life album, which is set for release on April 22.

Discussing the meaning of the song, the London duo say: "It’s becoming harder and harder for people to eat… Full stop. But it’s even harder to eat healthy and look after ones mind, body and spirit when the price of food is going up, the cost of living is going up but the wages stay the same!

“We want to encourage people to eat and live as healthy as they possibly can and remind people that when living with a government that is poisoning you with the food that is affordable, lack of investment in the mental health sector and is actively killing the planet with their agricultural and environmental practices, eating healthy and looking after yourself both mentally and physically is an act of revolution.”

In regards to the video for the single, the band say: "There’s no glitz and glamour because it isn’t needed. There’s a message here that we’re passionate about, especially at the moment. We wanted the video to be candid so we got our friend Leon to come join us as we went about a day performing some of the activities and training that we do.

“The main point is the message and we didn’t want to distract from that message with the video so we thought, ‘Well, what does the song talk about?’ It talks about fruit, veg, juices, lentils, chickpeas, activities, reading and a general healthy lifestyle etc, let’s show exactly that in a raw manner and let people digest the message.”

Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life will be released via the duo's own label, Ghost Theatre, on April 22. 

The band are set to kick off a UK/Ireland tour in Belfast on April 8.
