Napalm Death Streaming “Smash A Single Digit” Video Clip

Napalm Death is streaming a promotional video clip for “Smash A Single Digit” here.

The video for “Smash A Single Digit” was directed and produced by Michael Panduro, who has previously worked for bands like Cephalic Carnage, Saint Vitus or Job For A Cowboy.

Trivia facts about this clip: The video is made up of 1093 unique drawings, each one hand-drawn in ink on paper by artist Lisbet Fredslund and actually 225 of the drawings are of the face of NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway, who checked in to comment the clip as follows:

“Couldn’t be happier with the ‘Smash A Single Digit’ video clip. It shows nothing of dignity or life’s fundamental pleasures – only a snapshot of those unfortunate enough to only be deemed as numbers for production quotas in this world. When a ‘digit’ has therefore been expended, it is rubbed out (or consumed leaving no trace, as in the case of this video). In my opinion, Michael Panduro and the team produced a real work of art and I think the general style holds some really nice future artistic possibilities for NAPALM DEATH.”

The band has previously announced tour dates starting with 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise.

Napalm Death Streaming ‘Cesspits’, Upcoming Tour Dates

Napalm Death is streaming a new song “Cesspits” here. The song is off their new album Apex Predator – Easy Meat, out January 26, 2015 via Century Media Records.

NAPALM DEATH’s vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway checked in to comment on the track as follows:

“Cesspits is both literally and figuratively about people living in holes. It is perhaps one of the ultimate indignities and one of those things that a blind eye is often turned to. The subject matter called for a very savage delivery, and although there are quite a few musical facets to this song, it doesn’t stop letting rip.”

Napalm Death has an extensive tour schedule, including an appearance on 70,000 Tons Of Metal and their North American tour with Voivod, Exhumed, Iron Reagan and Black Crown Initiate.

Napalm Death Releasing Apex Predator – Easy Meat in January, Euro/Japan Tour, 70,000 Tons of Metal

napalm death

Napalm Death will be releasing their 15th studio album titled Apex Predator – Easy Meat via Century Media on January 26, 2015. Some song titles already revealed are “Copulating Snakes”, “Dear Slum Landlord” (aired at Roadburn 2014), “What Is Past Is Prologue” and “Stunt Your Growth”.

Vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway commented on the record:

“Sometimes you have to ponder long and hard for an album title, but following the Rana Plaza disaster of last year (collapse of a textile sweatshop building in Bangladesh), it spurred me on to try and craft an exposé of slave labour in the modern world (and the surrounding conditions propping it up).

Some in power like to declare that slavery is consigned to the history books. But if you look beneath the surface it is alive and well in many different forms – it just has a different face now, and exists in ways that may seem ethically ambiguous. Using the terminology of evolution particularly interests us, so in this case the ‘Apex Predator’ represents those who bring the slavery to bear (and capitalise from it), and the ‘Easy Meat’ is of therefore those who feel they have no option but to comply.

Fittingly, the music on ‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat’ is punishing. We feel it’s more ambient, more expansive, more unsettlingly discordant than ever, and importantly, still extremely rampant at excessive speed. We hope in every respect – both musically and lyrically – this album will make your eyes burn with the harsh sonics and harsh visions of the dumping ground of globalisation.”

Napalm Death have announced European and Japan tour dates in November, as well as an appearance on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise in January 2015.
