Malevolence commented:

“We are devastated to announce that due to unforeseen personal reasons beyond our control, we are unable to join The Acacia Strain for their US tour starting this weekend.

We have tried everything in our power to figure out a solution but unfortunately we haven’t been able to make it work.

We are not in the business of cancelling shows and we don’t take it lightly.

In all the years we have been a band, you can count the amount of shows we’ve cancelled on one hand.

We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to The Acacia Strain, I AM and 156/Silence and their teams, as well as everyone who was excited to see us over in the states.

We will back as soon as we can and will make it up to you all.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support”

Malevolence Premiere “Still Waters Run Deep” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “Still Waters Run Deep.” This track is from the band’s new album “Malicious Intent,” which will be released on May 20. Vocalist Alex Taylor commented:

“This video is a deep dive into the history of Malevolence. We dug through hours of old archive footage and picked out some highlights from over the years as the song is a tribute to the journey we have set upon together and the bond it has formed between us. After hundreds of shows and thousands of hours in the van and practice room, being a part of this band has been the most rewarding experience of our lives and this video reflects the evolution and progress of Malevolence over the last 12 years.”

“Anyone that has followed us for a while knows that Malevolence is capable of delivering a fairly wide spectrum of different sounds. Sometimes we want to write ballads, sometimes we want to write big choruses and sometimes we want to write songs that make you want to smash everything in your house to pieces. One of the hardest, darkest and most aggressive tracks from ‘Malicious Intent,’ ‘Life Sentence‘ is dedicated to anyone that thought we had gone soft!”

Malevolence Premiere “On Broken Glass” Music Video

Malevolence have premiered a new video for their new song “On Broken Glass.” This track is from the band’s new album “Malicious Intent,” which will be released on May 20.

Vocalist Alex Taylor said the following about the video:

“The video was filmed on location in Malevolence’s home town Sheffield. Directed by long time friend Daniel Prieß, the concept of the video was simple; to capture the raw energy of Malevolence in a live environment. Everything behind the video was done completely DIY by the band, from hiring the venue, stage and crew to inviting close friends and family down to the shoot. The video encapsulates the loyalty and passion that Malevolence’s fans have for the band.”

He also added the following about the album:

“‘Malicious Intent‘ is a demonstration of strength. It is the next step in the evolution of our band and is the product of hard work and creativity over two years of difficulties, lock downs and complete upheaval to every day life. The album embodies the progression of our sound but also our growth as individuals and I feel like with each release we put out, our sound matures with us.

The subjects that we touch on with this album will resonate with those who are seeking self reflection and progression. This is something we as a band will always strive for as we continue to carve our own path and build new foundations in the heavy music world. If you are a heavy music fan, there is something on this album for you. These are heavy metal anthems that will stand the test of time!”
