The event will be held at the Ships Of The Sea Museum in Savannah, GA on June 11 and it will now feature the following: Impending Doom, Lorna Shore, Rivers Of Nihil, Bodysnatcher, Evergreen Terrace, Distant, Kharma, Second Death, Depressor, Exit Strategy, and The Holy Ghost Tabernacle Choir. Remembering Never commented:

“Sadly we have to drop this insane fest. Luckily our dear friends in both Exit Strategy and Bodysnatcher will be taking our place. Sorry / you’re welcome. If we are invited to Aura next year, believe we’re taking it. Thank you to the fine folks at Aura and all the bands. We will have some announcements in a small grip of shows in October in the northeast soon. Keep your peepers peeled and your calendars open. You will want to come to more than one.”

Bodysnatcher Premiere “Behind The Crowd” Music Video

Bodysnatcher have premiered a new video for their new song “Behind The Crowd.” This track is from the band’s new album “Bleed-Abide,“ which will be released on April 22. Guitarist Kyle Carter commented:

“‘Behind The Crowd stirs up some serious emotion in me any time I listen to it, or read it because it’s so full of self-doubt. There’s a line in the song – ‘abide by nothing but my own lies’ – that to me was kind of a standout line because I consciously know and realize that I’m not alone and I’m loved by my friends and family, but it doesn’t stop those feelings at the moment. This song describes how I feel most of the time in any social gathering, or even in personal relationships with people. It’s a work in progress and writing this song was a definite step in the right direction for me.”

Bodysnatcher Premiere “Wired For Destruction” Music Video

Bodysnatcher have premiered a new video for their new song “Wired For Destruction.” This track is from the band’s new album “Bleed-Abide,“ which will be released on April 22. Guitarist Kyle Carter commented:

“‘Wired For Destruction‘ lyrically was inspired by our drummer Chris Whited and expanded on by me. For me, it represents the common fear of being forgotten after death. It also touches on the fear of not having control and doubting every action you take. The name says it all really. Death, sickness, and most fears hold a lot of us back from living our life how we really want to, so we thought it was an important topic to talk about.”

Bodysnatcher To Release New Album “Bleed-Abide” In April, Premiere “E.D.A.” Music Video

Bodysnatcher have announced that they will be releasing their new album, “Bleed-Abide,” on April 22. Pre-orders are available HERE.

“Bleed-Abide” Track Listing:

01. “Bleed”
02. “Abide”
03. “Absolved Of The Strings And Stone”
04. “Smashed Perception”
05. “Flatline”
06. “Glass Prison”
07. “Value Through Suffering”
08. “Chaos”
09. “E.D.A.”
10. “Wired For Destruction”
11. “Hollow Shell”
12. “Behind The Crowd”
13. “The Question”

Vocalist Kyle Medina said the following about the album:

“‘Bleed-Abide‘ is the ultimate culmination of what the band has been building for years, and I believe the best material to date. The instrumentals have matured and become heavier hitting and the lyrics dig deeper personally and more relatable than even ‘This Heavy Void‘. There is something for everyone in this album: slam riffs, breakdowns, two steps, choruses that stick…”

Drummer Chris Whited continued:

“This album means more to me than any album I have ever been involved in. We all love [last album] ‘This Heavy Void‘, but we weren’t the well-oiled machine that we are now. We know exactly how we all write together and what we are capable of now, and this album fully shows it. Every one of us put hours upon hours into this album throughout the pandemic. Hearing it all come together as one cohesive piece is amazing. I’m so proud of my brothers. This is the album I have always wanted to put out.”

Bassist Kyle Shope added:

“‘Bleed-Abide‘ really showcases the band’s evolution as a whole and in writing through the past four years. I know each of us is extremely happy with the album’s outcome, and we really can’t wait to perform these songs live. A significant part of the writing process involves hearing the music from a live perspective and trying hard to make sure each track lives up to what we expect from it. Super excited for everyone to listen to these songs!”

An official video for the effort’s first single, “E.D.A.,” can be found below. Guitarist Kyle Carter had the following to say about that track:

“The song is about the feelings I dealt with from my mom’s passing. It talks about how I felt robbed and didn’t even know the real person she was because I was only twelve when she died. It talks about how it feels like her death has defined who I am in so many ways, but I don’t even remember her fully. It’s a tough subject for me even still, and it’s very frustrating and confusing. I feel very strongly about this song, and I hope it helps anyone who might feel a similar way.”
