Napalm Death to release new EP in February
UK grindcore pioneers Napalm Death have announced a new 7" / digital EP to be released via Century Media Records on February 7. The release will kick off the start of the band's "Campaign For Musical Destruction" headline European tour alongside Eyehategod, Misery Index, Rotten Sound and Bat. The EP, titled Logic Ravaged By Brute Force, includes the brand new title track as well as a freshly recorded cover version of "White Kross," originally performed by Sonic Youth. The double-A-side EP is also meant as first teaser for the band's upcoming studio album, expected to surface later in 2020. Frontman Mark "Barney" Greenway comments: "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."
