Crossfaith Premiere New Song “Feel Alive”

Crossfaith have premiered a new song titled “Feel Alive.” Frontman Kenta Koie commented:

“‘Feel Alive‘ was the first song that we wrote since COVID-19 brought our world down into chaos. Everyone was forced to be alone and divided by the virus, thus we decided to make this song as a hope that cast the shadow. Also, we wanted to make it with our fans, so we recorded our fans clapping at our first show back since this unexpected disaster. In addition, we worked with Josh from Modestep on ‘Feel Alive‘ so you can hear true essence of UK bass music! This song means a lot to us, and hope this will be the light that shines on you.”

Crossfaith Premiere New Song “Slave Of Chaos”

Crossfaith have premiered a new song titled “Slave Of Chaos.” Frontman Kenta Koie commented:

“This is our message to the powers who try to control us. We have been strangled by your ego and we need to take back control! ‘Slave Of Chaos‘ mixes trap with hardcore punk and rock’s attitude, so it’s different from our last releases. But you’re going to find out about the new Crossfaith style as soon as you hear this song…”

Crossfaith Release New Song “RedZone”

Crossfaith have released a new song titled “RedZone.“ Frontman Kenta Koie said the following about that:

“We’re so excited about ‘RedZone‘. We wrote it for a video game [“Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. 2 XBOOST”], based on one of Japan’s most famous military sci-fi anime series, ‘Gundam‘. The world is still fighting with COVID-19, and right now we can’t tour outside Japan, but we hope you guys can keep jamming this track until we’re back on the road.”

Crossfaith Premiere “Digital Parasite” Music Video

Crossfaith have premiered a new video for their new song “Digital Parasite.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Species,” which will be released on May 22. That effort will also feature: “Endorphin,” “Truth Of Insanity,” “None Of Your Business” (feat. Jin Dogg), and “Your Song.” Kenta Koie said the following about “Digital Parasite”: “[It’s] dirty and heavy. I felt an explosion from the song and I knew the lyrics should be aggressive and offensive.” The vocalist went on to say that the track looks at “people selling their soul to get fame.” He also added:

“We need to be honest to the music, to ourselves and to our audience but some people are happy to start cheating and I don’t care for it. Playing heavy music is how I feel alive. We want Crossfaith to be the band making music that no one has ever heard before.”

Crossfaith Premiere “Make A Move” Music Video

Crossfaith have premiered a new video for their song “Make A Move.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Ex_Machina.” Singer Kenta Koie commented:

“This video was filmed while we were on our summer European tour, which was a great time for us. When you watch it, you can really feel the sort of energy we put into our live shows. And we can’t wait to be back in the U.K. and Europe for our headlining tour this month — check out ‘Make A Move’ and get ready for it!”

Crossfaith To Release New Album “Ex_Machina” In August

Crossfaith have announced that their new album “Ex_Machina” will be released on August 3. According to a press release, the effort is “a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones — as explained in the opening title track, ‘Deus Ex Machina’.” It goes on to say “the other 12 songs featured on the album represent the voice of the resistance — in the form of underdogs known as Demons.” If you missed it, the first single “The Perfect Nightmare” can be found HERE.

Vocalist Kenta “Ken” Koie commented:

“After we released our last album ‘Xeno’, we were thinking about what the next theme is for us. We decided on ‘awake the individuality,’ because we’re always trying to make new things and that’s a big part of the band’s attitude.

“This album is a grave warning for our future. I hope you guys listen to this and think about what the meaning of this album is for you and feel how you feel through this album and start something for your future.”

“There’s no particular religious message. In order to explore the dualism of humans, we decided to include angels and demons, which are opposing elements just like fire and water.”

“Angels aren’t necessarily good and demons aren’t necessarily bad. The most important theme is that we should never stop questioning the world around us.”
