Napalm Death have unveiled a lyric video for the song “Backlash Just Because.” The track is the first single taken from these U.K grindcore pioneers upcoming album Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism, out September 18th via Century Media Records.
Frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway comments:
“This song in particular really spurred me on when I was writing lyrics for the album overall. It’s raucous and traditional, but also quirky and discordant and ultimately catchy-as-anything in the context of rampaging noise. Lyrically it was directed at the spiteful art of creating easy targets and fomenting paranoia and revulsion, which is something that I feel has become de rigueur in very recent times. I really let loose on the more sporadic vocals at the end of the song – it’s a real barkfest at that point. Lovely.”
