Toronto rockers Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs are set to release their debut, self-titled album on July 28th via Dine Alone and Burger Records. Today, the group have premiered the record’s latest single, “Ragnarok.” Carried by a steady drumbeat and flurry of soaring riffs, the song stands out as a raucous, epic anthem.

Speaking on “Ragnarok”, Coffey says: “‘Ragnarok’ is the first part of the 15 minute trilogy on the b-side of the record, but the last part to be written so I wrote it to build into the themes of the other two songs (“Teenage Release” and “PHD”). It’s about self-actualization, and realizing what and where you want to be. The part before the chorus, “tell me the name of my guiding star” is like learning your real name for the first time, like when Clark Kent found out he was Kal-El. I always thought I’d live and die in my ergonomic office chair until I realized that I was pretty much born to rock. Ragnarok is also the name of a rad sword in most of the Final Fantasy games!

Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs recently wrapped up a month-long tour with labelmates and fellow Canadian rockers, The Flatliners and The Dirty Nil. Today, they share additional summer shows featuring stints alongside Yukon Blonde and The Sheepdogs. Peep the dates below while you rock out to “Ragnarok.”
