Speaking of band’s forthcoming mini album, Barney Greenway says: "You can certainly consider Resentment Is Always as an extension of, or partner recording to, the Throes album. We had long since wanted to put a mini-album out - in the spirit of the old days - and found we had enough quality tracks even after all the Throes bonus tracks to do that.

"Hopefully, this mini holds some nice twists in its own right for people, and certainly covering People Pie by Slab! made us really stretch ourselves, which feels great artistically. In the end, resentment is certainly seismic - it can trigger the complete erosion of humanity in many situations. That was the point that I really wanted to hammer home overall."
