Earthless Issue Statement Regarding Sexual Violence At Recent Live Show: “We Stand Against These Actions And Want To Express Our Support To Every Woman”

Earthless have issued a statement regarding acts of sexual violence that were committed during one of their recent live shows. The band condemned the egregious actions, while also voicing their support for the victims.

The group said the following:

“Hello friends, it has been brought to our attention that women in the audience at one of our recent shows were the victims of sexual violence. We stand against these actions and want to express our support to every woman.

We wish for our shows to be a safe space for women and everyone to enjoy live music and share the love and joy that it brings to us all. We ask that anyone who isn’t a feminist or cares for the wellbeing of women to refrain from attending our shows and for them to take a hard look at themselves. We are deeply saddened and hope these behaviors end now.

If you have been a victim of sexual violence at our shows or you think we can support you in any way feel free to reach out. We believe you, we are here for you and you are not alone.”

Earthless Preview New Song “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons”

Earthless have shared a preview of their new 41-minute single “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons.” That song serves as the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on January 28.

Earthless To Release New Album “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons” In January

Earthless will be releaing their new album, “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons,” on January 28. The effort will feature two songs including the 41-minute title track and a 20-minute song called “Death To The Red Sun.“ You can find a teaser for “Death To The Red Sun” below:

More information on the record was shared in a press release:

“The album and its title were inspired by an ancient Japanese legend in which a horde of demons, ghosts and other terrifying ghouls descend upon sleeping villages at night, once a year. Known as Hyakki Yagyo, or the “Night Parade of One Hundred Demons,” one version of the tale states that anyone who witnesses this otherworldly procession will die instantly—or be carried off by the creatures of the night. As a result, the villagers hide in their homes, lest they become victims of these supernatural invaders.”

Bassist Mike Eginton continued:

“My son and I came across the ‘Night Parade of One Hundred Demons’ in a book of traditional Japanese ghost stories. I like the idea of people hiding and being able to hear the madness but not see it. It’s the fear of the unknown.”

Drummer Mario Rubalcaba added:

“It definitely has a darker, almost evil kind of vibe compared to stuff we’ve done in the past. There’s more paranoia and noise, and some of Isaiah’s whammy-bar stuff kind of reminds me of these Jeff Hanneman moments in ‘Reign In Blood‘, where it just seems like everything is going to hell. It’s pretty fun.”

Earthless Release Cover Of Black Sabbath’s “Never Say Die”

Earthless have released their cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Never Say Die.” This track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ new Black Sabbath tribute album “Best Of Black Sabbath [Redux],” which will be released on October 30, along with a tribute to Black Sabbath’s “Vol. 4.“

Earthless commented:

“We were originally going to record ‘After Forever’ or ‘Lord of this World’ but those songs, which are two of our favorites, didn’t really fit our style of playing. Mario came in with ‘Never Say Die’ and we all agreed that a faster pace song would suit us better.

Also it was kind of cool to record a track that wasn’t from the first four, or six Ozzy era records. We recorded the song in our buddy Gabe’s living room, had him play a little organ, had Brendan Dellar from Sacri Monti come in and recorded the vocals. It was a very cool collaborative effort with friends. Those moments don’t happen too often.

Thank to MER for asking us to be part of this tribute to one of the greatest bands ever to grace our ears.”
