Premiere: 72% ‘Drowning In A Sea Of Bastards’ – Taken From New Split w/ Modern Technology

We’ve become huge fans of Human Worth as not only do they release the most mesmerising music, that’s firmly planted in the noise-rock spectrum, they also put their money where their mouth is, with a percent of the profits being donated to various charities, which have previously included The Hackney Foodbank and Harmless.

72% 'Drowning In A Sea Of Bastards'

So it’s with great pleasure we’re able to bring you the chilling new video from noise-rock deviants 72% and the track Drowning In A Sea of Bastards, taken from Human Worth‘s up and coming release, a split 7” with Modern Technology. The band comments…

‘After releasing our last album How Is This Going To Make It Any Better? with Hominid Sounds we began writing the follow up at the start of 2020. Drowning In A Sea Of Bastards was one of the first tracks to appear during rehearsals for a short tour we had booked in early March that year. The tour ended and a few weeks later everything stopped due to the pandemic. Along with that, all rehearsals and writing was put on hold.


After months of inactivity, an opportunity to get together in the studio presented itself and we masked up to get in and record the only song we had prepared! Our guitarist, Joe Brown, set to work on a video once we were all safely back in our houses. This is all came together while separated by 136 miles, emergency surgery & pandemic restrictions. We are really proud of this horrible song & creepy video. We hope you enjoy it!’

Curious? You should be, now watch the harrowing video below, although please be beware, we at The Shaman hold no responsibility for the inner turmoil you’re about to feel over the next three and a half minutes…

More On 72% & Modern Technology Split

Human Worth are proud to present their first split 7″ featuring brand new tracks and exclusive bonus materials from two of noise rock’s heaviest 72% and Modern Technology.

The two bands met sharing a bill for Baba Yaga’s Hut in London in March 2020. Little did they know that this would be one of their last shows before the world upended and the COVID crisis engulfed UK’s live music scene. A year on and there’s some light at the end of the tunnel, so to celebrate the bands have managed to wrangle together these new tracks recorded in and amongst the pandemic.
