Mark “Barney” Greenway Says Members Of Napalm Death Caught COVID-19 Following Fall 2021 U.S. Tour

During a recent appearance on “The MetalSucks Podcast,” Napalm Death frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway revealed that members of the band ended up catching COVID-19 following their fall 2021 U.S. tour with GWAR. The positive cases resulted in the band having to stay in the States for an extra 10 days.

Greenway said the following

“The tour itself was great, but you had to be kind of a little bit vigilant to try as best you could to not be mixing with too many people who you didn’t know — for obvious reasons at this point in time. Which is completely alien to my way of doing things usually, but, of course, we completely understood why that needed to be the case. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop all of us from getting COVID right at the end of the tour, so that was rough [laughs], to say the least.”

He also added:

“[It happened] right at the end of the tour after we finished, actually. [That was] good in some ways but not in others. I mean, I had to stay over for 10 days in the States when I didn’t want to. And it was a big old financial hit for the band on top of everything else. The COVID tests that we had to do while in the States, the cost was eye-watering. We’d already got that, and then we had to pay for accommodation [at the end of the tour], and that was the financial hit. But on the other side of things, we got travel insurance, so we made sure that everybody got travel insurance, just in case they became hospitalized. Nobody did in the end, but we were covered for the hospitalization but not for the accommodation, so we still had to pay for that.”

Shane Embury Says Napalm Death’s Next Album Will Feature “More Extreme Experimentation”

Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has taken to social media to offer some insight into his plans for the band’s next album. He said the following:

“Besides all of the other music I have been deeply involved with – during these past couple of years I have not lost sight of the next @theofficialnapalmdeath album! These last few albums due to to our extensive have taken time to out together… especially the last album. As it was released I already had thoughts on this next one so have been recording riffs and thinking a lot about what’s next – more extreme experimentation is on the horizon! but of course there is going to be some heavy as fuck riffing coming also 🤘😁 good night folks.”

Napalm Death To Release New Mini-Album “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes” In February, Premiere New Song “Narcissus”

Napalm Death have announced that they will be releasing a new mini-album, titled “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes,” on February 11. You can find the cover art and track listing for that effort below:

“Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes” Track Listing:

01. “Narcissus”
02. “Resentment Always Simmers”
03. “By Proxy”
04. “People Pie” (Slab! cover)
05. “Man Bites Dogged”
06. “Slaver Through A Repeat Performance”
07. “Don’t Need It” (Bad Brains cover)
08. “Resentment Is Always Seismic” (Dark Sky Burial dirge)

Mark “Barney” Greenway commented:

“You can certainly consider ‘Resentment Is Always…’ as an extension of — or partner recording to — the ‘Throes…’ album. We had long since wanted to put a mini-album out — in the spirit of the old days — and found we had enough quality tracks even after all the ‘Throes…’ bonus tracks to do that. Hopefully, this mini holds some nice twists in its own right for people, and certainly covering ‘People Pie’ by SLAB! made us really stretch ourselves, which feels great artistically. In the end, resentment is certainly seismic — it can trigger the complete erosion of humanity in many situations. That was the point that I really wanted to hammer home overall.”

The effort’s first single, “Narcissus,” can be found below. Greenway added the following about that:

“‘Narcissus’ just seemed to fit the bill as one of those rampaging tracks that we always seem to gravitate towards as an album opener. The low-slung concrete mixer bassline at the start really ushers it in nicely. It was written at a time when the ‘alt-right’ was parading itself around, so, lyrically, I like to think it exposes the vanity and personality cult of that whole thing.”

Napalm Death Premiere “Contagion” Music Video

Napalm Death have premiered a new video for their song “Contagion.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism.”

Mark “Barney” Greenway commented:

“Although we can only hope to provide a snapshot in four-minutes, what we wanted to try to illustrate with the ‘Contagion’ video is how difficult it has been made to do something as fundamental as moving freely as a human being. There is downright absurdity in that some people have to resort to mortal danger doing things like riding atop trains whilst others can move seamlessly and freely without a second thought. We advocate for an end to borders of all description. Complementing that, the sweaty live footage was shot brilliantly by Ljuba Generalova in Napalm Death’s virtual second home of Berlin and the music, you might say, just motors along like a train.”

Shane Embury added:

“Musically, ‘Contagion‘ is geared towards manic intense live mosh pit action but with an added 4AD noise quirk homage chorus! Also, having so many friends in the Latin community, through a couple of them I learned and read about the perilous journeys that families embark on for the chance at a better life. As a parent, I think of my children’s future all the time – the things we take for granted I wanted to reflect lyrically!”

Super7 Release New Action Figure Based On The Demon From Napalm Death’s “Scum” Album
