Ingested Premiere Video For New Song “Another Breath” Feat. Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein

Ingested have premiered a new video for their new song “Another Breath.” This track features Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein and it will appear on the band’s new album “Where Only Gods May Tread,” which is set to be released on August 14.

Ingested guitarist Sam Yates commented:

“In 2018 we opened a fantastic tour in the UK with Crowbar and they were all such down to earth great dudes. Super tight, crazy heavy and had the best stories! Kirk and his wife Robin were so genuine and cool and all of Crowbar would hang with us and shoot the shit most nights.

I was on public transport in the piss down rain writing lyrics for ‘Where Only Gods May Tread‘ and I wanted the opening of what became ‘Another Breath‘ to be this epic, heavy, sad song by someone who could actually sing. My first instinct, my first choice for this song was Kirk. It was that ‘I wonder if…’ moment.”

“Shane [Wesley] took time out of recording with Crowbar to engineer the guest spot himself, and Kirk brought the all-time goods. It was exactly what I had in my mind and he smashed it in record time like an absolute professional. It’s my favourite song from the record; Kirk is truly one of the most slept on metal greats and he was and always will be ‘The Man’.”

Yates also added the following about the video:

“The director for this video was Shayne Minott at Budget Blood Productions. Seeing his style the idea was to do this all out 90s throwback, dark claymation video. Just like the ones that used to play on music TV when we were teenagers.

The story was the ideas and themes of the song itself: defeat, self-loathing, the human condition, shame and control. I wrote the basic outline of the plot and we sent him a lot of content and he came up with what we wanted.

Great to work with and considering his medium he absolutely worked his ass off and knocked it out the park.”

Decapitated, Beyond Creation, Etc. Cancel Most Of Their European/UK Tour

Decapitated, Beyond Creation, Ingested, Lorna Shore, and Viscera have cancelled most of their European/UK tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The following shows will still take place without Ingested and Lorna Shore:

03/13 Glasgow, UK – Slay
03/14 Manchester, UK – Club Academy
03/15 Birmingham, UK – Mama Roux’s

Decapitated commented:

“Due to the rapidly changing circumstances regarding COVID-19, the majority of the remaining Faces Of Death shows in mainland Europe were forced to be cancelled due to government decrees…

Everybody involved in the tour, including the bands, tried their very best over the last few days to save the rest of the tour, but at this point it is simply not doable anymore to continue the European dates.

All the remaining UK shows will still go ahead. However, due to an unexpected family emergency Ingested had to leave the tour yesterday. Our thoughts go out to them.
Due to the travel ban issued by President Trump, Lorna Shore unfortunately need to leave the tour early…

To everybody who bought a ticket for any of the shows, we want to thank you very much for your support. If you were able to attend one of the Faces Of Death shows, we hope you had a great time. If you have a ticket for one of the remaining UK shows, we ask you to understand the current situation and hope you will still be able to attend the show.

To everybody who has a ticket for one of the remaining European shows, we are sorry for the inconvenience. Tickets can be refunded at your point of purchase, but please be patient.

Last but not least, thank you to everyone involved and to Decapitated, Beyond Creation, Ingested, Lorna Shore and Viscera for making the first half of the Rising Merch Faces Of Death Tour a success!”
