Napalm Death To Release New EP “Logic Ravaged By Brute Force”

Napalm Death will be releasing a new EP titled “Logic Ravaged By Brute Force” on February 7. The effort will be available digitally and on 7″ vinyl and it will feature the new title track, as well as a cover of Sonic Youth‘s “White Kross.“

Mark “Barney” Greenway commented:

“In keeping with Napalm Death custom, we had a vast swathe of new songs with many different flavours. 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.”

The EP can be purchased in the following vinyl colors:

  • Black [Unlimited]
  • Blue [200x copies via CM Distro Europe]
  • Light Green [100x copies via CM Webshop Europe]
  • Neon Yellow [100x copies via CM Webshop USA (out February 28)]
  • Orange [600x Exclusively from the band on the road!]

Mark “Barney” Greenway On New Napalm Death Album: “We’re Almost Ready To Put It Out”

During a recent interview with Heavy New York, Mark “Barney” Greenway offered an update on the new Napalm Death album. He said the following:

“We’ve been kind of promising something for quite a while, but unforeseen circumstances kind of got in the way. And this one has taken a lot longer. We’re all good with that now — we’ve kind of accepted the fact that it has taken quite a while. And recently, there was also a couple of other small delays — minor things — here and there. But, yeah, we’re almost ready to put it out. Overall, I’m not particularly pleased with myself that it’s taken this long, from my contribution to it. But it is what it is.”

Napalm Death’s Shane Embury To Miss Upcoming U.S. Tour

Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has announced that he will be missing the band’s U.S. tour with Municipal Waste, Sick Of It All and Take Offense. During his absence, Vernon Blake will be filling in. Embury commented:

“Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, I will not be able to grind on the U.S. tour with Sick Of It All and Municipal Waste. Driving the bass bulldozer will be Vernon Blake, long-time friend and veteran grindcore/hardcore dealer with his Rigid Records label.”
