Napalm Death release first new song in four years

UK grindcore pioneers Napalm Death released their new 7-inch and digital EP entitled Logic Ravaged By Brute Force via Century Media Records today. The release also kicks off their "Campaign For Musical Destruction" headline tour of Europe alongside Eyehategod, Misery Index, Rotten Sound, and Bat. The EP includes a brand-new title-track as well as a freshly recorded cover version of "White Kross," originally by Sonic Youth. You can stream both tracks below. The collectible double-A-side EP is also a teaser for the band's upcoming studio album, expected for release later in 2020. "In keeping with Napalm Death custom, we had a vast swathe of new songs with many different flavors," states Napalm Death's frontman Mark "Barney" Greenway about the EP: "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."
