Red Handed Denial, who recently announced the May 24 release of their new album, "A Journey Through Virtual Dystopia" (Paid Vacation Records), have released a second song and video from the 10-song album: “One More Night”.

“This might be my favorite song we’ve ever done, definitely my favorite on the album,” vocalist Lauren Babic says of the four-minute track. “There’s something special about it. I think it’s a really fresh take on what rock/metal can be by combining EDM and future bass elements. It’s not the heaviest on the album by any means, but there is a heaviness and sense of despair that translates in the vocal delivery so powerfully.”

The band previously released the single “Parasite” and its Alex McFarland-directed video.

A Journey Through Virtual Dystopia is a testament to my discontent with how reliant we became on technology during the Pandemic,” Babic continues. “We’re reaping the consequences. Mental health has severely suffered. When the world opened, a lot of us struggled and felt different. I feel different too. We get a false sense of security from platforms like TikTok and Instagram. We’re stuck in a cycle of little dopamine releases from every swipe, but we’re not content. When I get away from these apps, I find clarity.”
