May 12 — Bleed From Within debuted the latest single from its forthcoming album, Shrine, and its companion video this week.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Flesh and Stone‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song is the fourth single from the album, which is scheduled for release June 3 through Nuclear Blast Records. The album has also produced the singles, ‘I Am Damnation,’ ‘Levitate,’ and ‘Stand Down.’
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Flesh and Stone’ is everything that audiences have come to expect from Bleed From Within musically speaking. The intense screams are there, as are the equally powerful orchestrations and intense drums, guitar riffs and more. Comparisons can be made at points, to works from Ice Nine Kills, and at others, to works from the likes of Whitechapel. The blend of influences makes the song a heavy, intense work that will appeal to a wide range of metal fans.
Drummer Ali Richardson talked about the song’s lyrical theme and its connection to the song’s video in a prepared statement.
“‘Flesh And Stone’ was born from the idea that future generations will inherit a dying planet,” Richardson said. “The evidence to support this theory is overwhelming, but we are still met with people who choose to deny the fact that this world is finite. Avoiding the traditional performance style video, we instead wanted to create a cinematic fictional world that could no longer defend itself from the sun; a barren wasteland once full of life. In her isolation, our desperate protagonist has resorted to rituals in order to manifest some form of life on this dead world, but it’s too late.
In other news, Bleed From Within has an extensive summer tour scheduled in support of its new album. The tour is scheduled to launch with a handful of festival shows between June 2 and Aug. 18.
After finishing its festival shows, the band will take some downtime before launching a full European tour Dec. 1 in Cologne, Germany. The tour is scheduled to run through Dec. 5 in Paris, France.
