HEALTH have announced their new album, RAT WARS, out December 7th via Loma Vista Recordings. In anticipation of its release, they
have shared two new tracks “CHILDREN OF SORROW” featuring Lamb of God‘s Willie Adler on guitar and “SICKO.” The former arrives with a video directed by James Markidis.
A press release describes RAT WARS as HEALTH’s “most violent yet vulnerable of their career.” The 12-track LP was produced by Stint and mixed by Lars Stalfors. The press release continues: “Written during the most emotionally trying period of the band’s life, the album builds on their chaotic yet re-invigorating pandemic years. RAT WARS captures all the fury and ambition their LP’s have until now aspired to. It’s their boldest statement on the insanity and the insipidness of contemporary life. ‘VOL.4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR’ won over heavy music fans with its thrash riffs dissolving into ambient melancholy and hip hop beats, while the lockdown era, two-part ‘DISCO4’ fully explored collaborative songwriting with peers from across metal, rap, electronic, and indie rock.”
