See You Next Tuesday Stream First New Song in 14 Years, “Hey Look, No Crying”


In the late aughts, Midwest mathcore weirdos See You Next Tuesday released a pair of off-the-wall albums—Parasite and Intervals—via the now-defunct label Ferret Music. The band went on hiatus in 2009 with few plans to reunite but absence makes the heart grow fonder and See You Next Tuesday will release their new, third album, Distractions, in February 2023.

The first taste of new music comes in the form of the single “Hey Look, No Crying,” which you can stream below. If you were a fan of See You Next Tuesday before, you’ll be a fan of the songs on Distractions. The 14-year break didn’t take the edge out of the band but the songs are more streamlined and less chaotic for the sake of it, taking a more modern grind and mathcore approach.

There’s a deeper meaning behind the song, as vocalist Chris Fox explains. It’s a fitting choice to break their silence with, seeing as See You Next Tuesday have been relatively inactive over the last decade and change, only getting together for the occasional show, until now.

“It is more or less about looking back at your life and basically being in mourning for the moments of your life that you’ll never get to relive as you are ultimately aging, slowly moving towards your own death alone and becoming less and less relevant to the world. I struggle heavily with the idea of death and growing old and fixate on it a lot which I express a few times on this album. At times I am devastated by remembering and realizing the moments I should have cherished more at the time that they were happening. And then I get back to reality where I’m there by myself and separated by years from that moment.” 

You can listen to “Hey Look, No Crying” now. Distractions is set for a February 17 release via Good Fight Music.
