Mr. Bungle have premiered a new live video for their song “Eracist.” The footage is taken from the band’s new live album/film “The Night They Came Home,” which will be released on June 11. That effort will feature the band’s October 31, 2020 livestream show in Eureka, CA.
Trevor Dunn told Kerrang! the following:
“‘Eracist‘ is a unique song in the ‘Raging Wrath‘ book. There was no initial demo, only a ‘moshy’ riff that [Mike] Patton had come up with in the ’80s, that somehow Trey [Spruance] remembered. Once that was unearthed Patton completed the tune with a double-time bridge and some lyrics about erasure and denial.
It seems to me that it somehow feels contemporary while fitting in with our teenage songwriting style. I guess that’s because it was written over a span of 35 years! You may notice that it’s one of the only songs on the ‘demo’ that actually has a vocal melody. Back in the ’80s we were mostly thinking about drums and guitar, which of course, is really all that metal is about.”
