French Punks Nightwatchers Release New Single ‘1905 & The Muslim Exception’

The band drop their first new music in two years, ahead of the release of their second studio album in the autumn

1905 & The Muslim Exception is Nightwatchers‘ first new music since their 2019 debut album, La Paix Ou La Sable. The new single is a small taster of what to expect from the French melodic punk band’s upcoming album, Common Crusades due out in October.

Common Crusades is the second full-length from the French punk band and has the musical and lyrical continuity of their thematic 2019 debut. Political lyrics deal with the conflicts rooted in France‘s colonial-era clash with melodic, subversive, and gloomy soundscapes.

The new album tackles the same issues that shaped Nightwatchers debut but from a different perspective. Both albums deal with events surrounding France‘s violent colonisation and exploitation of its occurred territories.

While the lyrics of La Paix Ou Le Sable is based on excerpts taken from two historical books and written with the objective of raising awareness of France‘s colonial violence, Common Crusades mainly focuses on the aftermath of these conflicts, and how the colonial era still affects modern-day France. In particular, its Muslim population.

1905 & The Muslim Exception is available now on all streaming platforms. Listen/Buy HERE.
