The new song serves as the title track off the band's all-new LP, which will be released on October 5, 2018 via Entertainment One (eOne). "I had a dream about Lemmy," says Matt Pike, explaining the inspiration behind the title of High on Fire's triumphant new "Electric Messiah." "When Lemmy was still alive I always got compared to Lemmy," the gravelly-voiced guitarist elaborates, "so I had this dream where he got pissed at me." "He gave me a bunch of shit, basically, and was hazing me. Not that he didn't approve of me, but like I was being hazed. The song is me telling the world that I could never fill Lemmy's shoes because Lemmy's Lemmy. I wanted to pay homage to him in a great way. And it turned out to be such a good title that the guys said we should call the album 'Electric Messiah.'"
