about

Society of Beggars return with 'Dance The Evil', a blistering new single that cuts to the core, harkening back to a time of brooding rock songs that speak to truth and are impossible to forget.

Dark and uncompromising, Society of Beggars have stayed the course. From their rock roots, they have created an indefinable sound. With solid songwriting chops, pounding drums and searing guitar, Society of Beggars' sound is heavy but it has heart.

Leaning on their ‘90’s post-grunge influences, 'Dance The Evil', produced by Lindsay Gravina at Birdland Studios, is a brooding and romantic track, that’s deeply personal and immediately memorable.

Leaning on their ‘90’s post-grunge influences, 'Dance The Evil', produced by Lindsay Gravina at Birdland Studios, is a brooding and romantic track, that’s deeply personal and immediately memorable. Dance The Evil climbs to the summit of Witch Mountain and dares you to come along for the ride.

Originally from Adelaide, South Australia, SOB are rock scene veterans. With multiple national tours under their belt and an ever-expanding international fan base, Society of Beggars continue to grow from strength to strength. Now based in Melbourne, they remain an authentic voice in the heavy rock scene and are keen as mustard to unleash to the world, the latest chapter of their sonic story.



For lead singer Yianni Michalopoulos, the journey—full of both heartbreak and wonder—has all been worth it.



“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.”



“As a song, I think the idea of occupying space in another person’s mind, having a connection on an emotional level, whether it’s romantic or whatever, is something everyone can relate to.”



The second single from their forthcoming album, 'Levitator', this is a track that is steeped in mystery and inexplicably draws you in.

Society of Beggars have emerged, ready to rock and 'Dance The Evil' is their most personal work yet. SOB invite you to join the family, as they summon the spirits of witches and rock gods that move the Ouija board marker to YES.

lyrics

Black-eyed lioness
I'll make your blood run deep cherry red
I dance the evil in your head

And I'll be your weapon
I'll drink up all of your darkness and light
I'll be your wolf in the night

Are you gonna go with me tomorrow?
You don't have to stand alone in sorrow
If we have to beg, steal and borrow

Are you afraid?
Are you afraid?
No

Drowned in heartbeats
And they say that we are both bad company
You dance the evil in me

It's no bad desire
And it ain't no crime in these deathlike times
To dance the evil tonight

Have you got enough to beg, steal and borrow?
Will we ever run free tomorrow?
Do you understand what I'm getting at, yeah?

Are you afraid?

Are you bold enough to reach tomorrow?
If we have to beg, steal and borrow?
Do you understand what I'm getting at, yeah?

Are you afraid?
Are you afraid?
No

Deathlike times

Do you understand what I'm trying to say, yeah?
Have you got enough to beg, steal and borrow?
Will we ever run free tomorrow?
Are you afraid?

Do you understand what I'm getting at, yeah?
If we have to beg, steal and borrow?
Will we ever run free tomorrow?

Are you awake now?
Are you awake now?
