Carcass To Release New EP “Despicable” In October, Premiere New Song “The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue”

Jeff Walker commented:

“Well, the COVID situation has put the release of the new Carcass album on the backburner for the time being. Given that we said there’d be new music in August, we thought it would be cool to have a stop-gap release and let you hear some of the tracks that never quite made the cut. Don’t say we never give you anything. Enjoy.”

“Despicable” Track Listing:

01. “The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue”
02. “The Long And Winding Bier Road”
03. “Under The Scalpel Blade” (album version)
04. “Slaughtered In Soho”

Carcass Delay New Album Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

Carcass’ new album, “Torn Arteries,” has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Well there’s no way our new album is gonna get released in August now, what with the ongoing pandemic, CD & vinyl manufacturers have closed and label distribution has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. There’s more pressing things to be concerned with right now, correct? Bunker down, look after yourselves, let’s see the next few months through and we’ll get the album released as soon as there’s some kind of return to ‘normality’”

Carcass Cancel Australian Tour

Carcass have cancelled their Australian tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s an official statement:

“Due to the very unfortunate circumstances surrounding the Download Festival cancellation and now the newly enforced government regulations, Soundworks Touring regrets to inform the public that all appearances on the scheduled Carcass Australian tour have been cancelled. This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make, but one we now have no choice in. Ticket purchasers will receive a refund via point of purchase. We urge everyone to please be patient during the refund process. We sincerely apologise for all disappointment and inconvenience caused by these decisions made. We are 100% committed to rescheduling a headlining Carcass tour to a later time frame when world health concerns settle.”

Carcass Reveal Title For New Album

During a recent interview with Heavy, Bill Steer revealed that Carcass’ new album will be called “Torn Arteries.” As previously reported, that record will be released on August 7. Steer had the following to say about the title:

“[Ken Owen] had a fictitious band called TORN ARTERIES and he recorded everything himself in his bedroom — guitar and he’d actually bang on boxes and kind of scream into the mic. And the whole thing was so distorted, it kind of sounded super heavy, even though essentially you were listening to a guy with a Spanish guitar and a couple of boxes. I think Jeff [Walker] appreciates the connection to the past and the fact that it was another Ken Owen classic. So that was his choice, really, and it stuck.”

Carcass are streaming a new song titled “Under The Scalpel Blade.” The track, which was recorded during the band’s new album sessions, was previously released as part of Decibel’s flexi disc series and it is now available in digital outlets as well. Jeff Walker commented:

“It’s always difficult trying to decide what new song to expose people to, especially given an absence of nearly seven years???? With that in mind here’s a slow throw away number we cobbled together, and NO the title was NOT plagiarized from the Disorder album of the same title before you ask!”
