Listen to a new song by Akira The Don, skewering general Tory idiocy with a bright and shiny spear of righteousness

Akira The Don has made a new track available via Soundcloud, entitled 'Lemmings'. As its name suggests, it samples the classic video game of the same name and concerns, in Akira's own words, "Tory fuckery" - specifically around the imagined petrol crisis - alongside "Daily Fail woman hating and trolling and Fony 2012. it is very catchy and the kids love it." Listen to 'Lemmings' via the embed below.

'Lemmings' is taken from his new mixtape, impressively titled ATD28: Unkillable Thunderchrist, which is set to feature collaborations with Big Narstie, Polar Bear and One Capone, among others. This track acts as something of a preview for the tape, which you can pre-order from his site, and is due to drop on May 7th. Click here for more information and to pre-order.

In the meantime, you can watch the video for 'Lemmings', which features the blindly-following, cliff-jumping creatures themselves.
