Combichrist Premiere “Understand” Music Video

Combichrist have premiered a new video for their new song “Understand.“ This track is from the band’s new album “One Fire,“ which will be released on June 7.

Andy LePlegua commented:

“This might be the most important music video I’ve ever made. I’m addressing themes and personal feelings that to date I’ve kept hidden. Anxiety, fear, the unknown, and how they take a toll on people’s lives, on my life. This is the third video I’ve made with director Jason Alacrity, and his ability to translate these wild impulses and different ideas was a great challenge.

But he, and the cast, really did an amazing job making the song come to life in an even more intense way. ‘Understand‘ isn’t just about knowing, it’s about learning.”

Combichrist Announce North American Tour With Silver Snakes

Combichrist have announced a North American tour with Silver Snakes. The band will be touring in support of their upcoming album “One Fire.” Andy LaPlegua commented:

“Welcome to the birth, growth, death, and rebirth of a band. Combichrist has become a purely visceral creature, driven by instinct and emotion; stripped of all pretension. It’s raw and uncompromising – it’s fueled by expressions of lust, anger, pain and hate. The never-ending evolution of a sound has finally come full circle. It’s time to feed our demons. It’s been way too long since we visited the roots of this band, and we are injecting it with the future! I can’t even express how stoked I am to get on the road right now. This new lineup and these new tracks have ignited a fire in me that I forgot I had.”

Drummer Joe Letz Exits Combichrist

Joe Letz has announced his departure from Combichrist. The drummer says he is “currently on a road to recovery” and that it is taking him “to a new place in life.”

Letz said the following:

“After 13 years the time has come for me to make my exit from Combichrist. The decision did not come with ease, but with confidence. I’m currently on a road to recovery and happy to say that it’s taken me to a new place in life. One in which I can begin to forge new paths while building new relationships among new experiences. This is what’s best for me right now.

I have no hard feelings and I wish Andy and all of my former bandmates nothing but the best. Without them my career thus far would not have been possible. All of the friends I’ve made, the places I’ve seen, and experiences I’ve had have been thanks to them and for that I am eternally grateful.

I wish Combichrist continued success and the continued support from their incredible fans. It’s been a gift to play for you.

I love all of you and look forward to what the future holds.

Joe Letz“
