In anticipation of the release of their 14th studio album, Utilitarian , on February 27th in Europe and February 28th in North America, the legendary NAPALM DEATH has posted a new video of Mark “Barney” Greenway discussing the Occupy Movement and riots. To watch the video, click the link below:
To show their support for the Occupy movement and to provide fans with the latest news about their politically-charged Utilitarian, NAPALM DEATH launched an “Occupy Napalm” Facebook tab with downloadable Occupy-themed stencils and screensavers, plus a special video teaser for the album created by Mitch Harris (guitar, vocals). This Facebook tab is the place to go for everything NAPALM DEATH, so go Occupy Napalm now!
The band also just released the second part of their amazing Utilitarian track-by-track series (the first track-by-track can be viewed here). In this video, Barney guides you through the next four songs on the album: “The Wolf I Feed”, “Quarantined”, “Fall On Their Swords”, and “Collision Course”. In addition to featuring an explanation of the meaning behind each song, this track-by-track is also spiced-up with audio samples of all the new album songs that Barney refers to.
