Veil of Maya Debut New Song “Outrun”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Veil of Maya have released a new single, “Outrun.” It’s the band’s second new song this year, after February’s “Viscera,” and parts of it are EXTREMELY poppy. I’ll be curious to see if people are into it are not. It isn’t quite my strain of weed, but I certainly appreciate how catchy it is.

You can check out the song via the below music video.

Last year, VoM guitarist Marc Okubo told MetalSucks’ own Vince Neilstein the following about the band’s next album, which will be their first since False Idol, released in October of 2017:

“I am feeling that remaining a heavy band is the move and kind of going back to our roots is the vibe. I know that there’s still going to be people that don’t like singing obviously, and I’m aware of it, but at the same time, we make a lot of new fans.

“So I kind of want to have a few songs that do kind of have that technical death metal vibe that we used to, but at the same time I’d like to mix that into the progressive world as well.

“I don’t know if going full radio rock is the move for us, I don’t think our fans will believe that. I know that it would be beneficial in some ways… trying to find a middle ground between all of that is what I’m working on.

“But I feel like heavy is the move and if it’s catchy enough for radio, whatever, but that shouldn’t be the main focus of our songwriting.”

At that time, Okubo said the band was hoping for an early 2021 release. It’s probably fair to readjust those expectations.
