Nergal commented:

“With the utmost pride and… kind of relief;,I present to you, the second ME AND THAT MAN album — ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1′. This time ’round, I wanted to take on a different challenge and curated an album of 11 songs — each with their own character and vibe, alongside the most talented and important individuals across the whole scene. Together, we take trips to the lands of blues, folk, country and even spaghetti western. Only time will tell if we hit the mark, but I deeply believe so. I’m very proud of this piece of work and it has been a monumental task to achieve.

I would like to thank EACH one of our guests for being part of this project: Mat and Matt, Niklas and Jørgen, Corey, Alan, Addi, Brent, Vegard, Sivert, Anders, Rob, Jerome, Johanna and Nicke. I LOVE you all from here to the moon and back! Without the passion and heart you granted us, this wouldn’t have been possible!”

Two songs from the album, Run With The Devil” (feat. Jørgen Munkeby) and “Burning Churches” (feat. Mat McNerney), have already been released and a video for the third single, “Surrender” (feat. Anders Landelius and Rob Caggiano), can be found below:

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere Animated Video For New Christmas Song “Burning Churches”

Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have released a new Christmas song titled “Burning Churches.“ This track features Mat McNerney (Grave Pleasures, etc.) and an animated music video for it can be found below:

Nergal commented:

“If someone would have told me one day, I’d release a Xmas song, I would have burst into laughter. Hell freezes over and I present to you, ‘Burning Churches‘. This time I team up with Mat McNerney from the legendary Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures, DHG and Hexvessel. Make yourself comfortable around the Christmas tree, stoke the fire and grab yourself a drink! Hallelujah.”

A press release offered more info on the track:

“The story of ‘Burning Churches‘ goes much deeper than a first glance or listen might suggest. The new single tackles the dark, mournful tale of a young boy who was abused by a priest in his childhood. By swearing vengeance on the church and radicalizing himself, he transforms into a sort of satanic anti-hero who seems to gather more followers by the second. ‘Burning Churches‘ to the ground, one by one, he gets his revenge. Me And That Man presents the story in yet another grim snapshot with an elaborate comic strip depiction.”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere “Run With The Devil” Music Video

Me And That Man have premiered a new song titled “Run With The Devil.“ This track features Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) and an official video for it can be found below:

Nergal (Behemoth) commented:

“This one was a lot of fun! When I first started thinking of the imagery to the track, I wanted to create something more than a music video, I wanted a music movie which carries on from where ‘Nightride‘ left off. Don’t take it too seriously, we’re metaphorically burying the past and bringing in a new! A great way to introduce the next incarnation of Me And That Man… but what next? Stick around, there is plenty of rather splendid things to see soon!”

Nergal (Behemoth) Planning To Release New Me And That Man Album In 2020

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, Nergal (Behemoth) revealed that he is planning to release a new Me And That Man album in 2020. However, it is still unknown who will be replacing John Porter, who left the band last year. Nergal said the following:

“I’m definitely gonna do some sessions with Me And That Man, my other project, we’re in a stage of writing new music, so let’s see how it goes. I’m planning on having the record out next year. It’s taking time, I’m not rushing.”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Part Ways With John Porter

Behemoth frontman Nergal’s blues, country and folk project Me And That Man have parted ways with John Porter. Nergal confirmed the news in the below interview with uDiscover Music. Despite this, he did add that a new album will likely be released in 2020.

Nergal said the following:

“I’ll try to be as diplomatic as I can. It wasn’t the easiest collaboration in my life, which means that it was the most difficult collaboration in my life. [Laughs] I’m talking man to man, because there’s been some man-female collaborations that were a bit harder. But [for a] man-to-man collaboration, it was very hard. So it just wouldn’t work. Either one would kill one another sooner or later, so better to stay alive and separate.”

He also said that with Porter gone it’s “pretty much [him] driving this train” and that he would “like to transform the name of the band to ‘Me and This Man’.”

He went on to say there will “definitely” be another album:

“Probably in 2019 we’ll start recording. We’re already fucking around with ideas, so it might see the light of day in 2020.

He also said the following about what it might sound like:

“I already have a concept that I don’t wanna spoil here now — I’m not gonna tease — because it’s still in my head, but I think it’s pretty spectacular. So I think it’s gonna be cool. I love the idea. I hope people will dig it. But it’s gonna be a completely different form — it’ll be totally different. And then I’m open for maybe the third record — if there’s a third record — do something else again. And I try to be as flexible as I can — as long as I express myself the way I want. It’s not like BEHEMOTH, [where] we have this solid setup, and it is what it is, and everyone has its spot and place. With ME AND THAT MAN, I like it to be like a river; it just flows, and, ‘Okay, let’s take a curve,’ ‘Let’s do this.'”
