Melbourne based four-piece Society of Beggars recently unveiled the first taste of their forthcoming album Levitator, with the release of Dance The Evil. The release arrived alongside an official visual, directed by Bridget Mackey.

Set atop rock based sonics, the track continues the bands signature sounds, bringing voltaic guitar lines and pounding drums to Dance The Evil. Produced by Lindsay Gravina at Birdland Studios, the personal track navigates an intimate relationship, exploring the strength of human connection. Frontman Yianni Michalopoulos' commanding vocals ring through the song, with the accompanying visual cutting between shots of the band performing the track by the sea, and a woman within a body of water.

Speaking of the track, Michalopoulos shares: “It feels amazing to finally release another slice of our weird, occult pie with this authentically Rock & Roll presentation. We live in this music, in this constant Rock & Roll dream state. As a band, the records we listen to, the books we read and the films we watch all bleed into it, so to be able to put that energy out there and have people connect with it is incredibly rewarding.”

To celebrate the release, Society of Beggars are set to return to the stage at Melbourne’s home of rock, Cherry Bar, later this month - COVID restrictions pending. The band will continue to tease tracks from Levitator, which is set to be their most personal body of work yet
