Let's Wrestle release new digital single today!

Today, Let’s Wrestle present a new digital single featuring two brand new songs: “Getting Rest” and “When I Was In Hospital.”

“‘Getting Rest’ is about our first trip to the states when we were completely unknown here (apart from NYC and Austin),” says Wesley Patrick Gonzalez. “Me and Mike Lightning went for a stroll in Baltimore and were being idiots, taking photos of ourselves doing Kung Fu moves, and a homeless guy asked us for a cigarette. He said, ‘Welcome to Baltimore!’ and Mike said he was welcome in London anytime. The man started crying and asked us to get him out of there. This song is about being ignorant to the messed-up stuff that goes on around you.”

“‘When I Was In Hospital’ is a song I wrote when I started thinking about how I’d cope with being terminally ill,” Wesley continued. “It’s more about what I’d say to a friend than actually being ill myself. I’m afraid both of these songs are quite morbid, but get used to it! You are looking at the new Radiohead! Proggy sobbing!”

Let’s Wrestle’s “Getting Rest” digital single is available today at iTunes and in the Merge store. Mike, Wesley and Darkus are on tour in the US now with Man Man and will head east for dates with Superchunk later this month. Follow their tour adventures at their blog.
