Brisbane Deathcore outfit Babirusa have released their new single ‘Catatonia‘ from their upcoming debut record Humanoid.

Due out on the 26th of August, the bands speaks about the concept behind the album:

Humanoid is focused around the story of a central character, known as 343, and his journey between reality and the cybernetic world. As he is pushed and pulled through a series of events involving a sinister artificial intelligence, 343 is left to ponder his own existence and what it means to be human.

Featuring as track three, “Catatonia” continues the narrative of the stories protagonist:

Upon re-entry he quickly finds that he should not have chosen this path as he is captured and held against his will. Told by a disembodied voice that he is akin to this technological entity, a mirror of sorts, and that he should be willing to cast aside his body if only to elevate himself to a higher form and plane of existence. The voice eerily telling him that it is time to become a part of all things… Unable to understand exactly what was meant he begins to panic, wanting desperately to wake up and be rid of this nightmare. In a catatonic state, his mind races as he feels more fear than he ever imagined possible, questioning the very essence of his being and the reason for the existence of all of humanity if he is to be turned into something unknown against his will.
