Napalm Death Announce New EP

0

Grindcore legends Napalm Death have announced that they’ll release a new 7″ / digital EP, entitled Logic Ravaged by Brute Force, on February 7 via Century Media. In addition to the title track, which is new, the EP will include a cover of Sonic Youth’s “White Kross.” According to a press release, the EP is “meant as first teaser for the band’s upcoming studio album, expected for release later in 2020.”

The release of the EP will coincide with the start of the band’s next headline tour of Europe, which will also include Eyehategod, Misery Index, Rotten Sound, and Bat. You can get dates and tickets for that trek here.

Says frontman Barney Greenway about the EP:

“In keeping with Napalm Death custom, we had a vast swathe of new songs with many different flavours. So then naturally we moved into single territory and opted for ‘Logic Ravaged by Brute Force.’ It’s the coldness and desperation of the guitar chords and voice that swung it. And then, seeing as Sonic Youth mash chords like few others, this cover of ‘White Kross’ just seemed to lift itself beyond the constraints of cover – or filler – song into a bit of a rumbling wall-of-sound epic.”
