Listen: Visage Share Preview Of New Song "Never Enough" - Day 1

The new Visage album 'Hearts and Knives' is released on the 20th May. It's their first album in 29 years. and to celebrate the lead up of the release they are previewing one track every day for 10 days.

Day 1 - "Never Enough"

About the song, Visage say:

"29 years in the making, the opening track of album four needed to start with a bang and it does. 'Never Enough' merges thundering Moroder-esque basslines with layers of Robin Simon's effected guitars. Real drums with copious amounts of fills power the track. The highlight however is the main keyboard riff which features boldly in the intro and chorus." 

"The lyrics reflect a stormy and failing relationship and set the tone for a more personal approach to the song-writing on the album."
