Cover shot – HEALTH
Following an interview on Apple Radio’s The Zane Lowe Show, and a cover feature on Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist, HEALTH have released their latest single, ASHAMED. The corrupted R&B pop banger–a raw and emotional gut punch–is the latest preview of the LA-based industrial-rock band’s highly anticipated new album, RAT WARS, due out December 7 via Loma Vista Recordings. The track is out now alongside a video directed by HEALTH’s bassist/producer John Famiglietti and James Kid, and capturing Famiglietti’s recent visits to the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, CA and DragonCon in Atlanta, GA.
ASHAMED follows the album’s two lead singles CHILDREN OF SORROW and SICKO, which earned praise and support from Revolver (Best Songs of the Week), Guitar World (Essential Guitar Tracks), Uproxx (Best New Indie), Loudwire, Stereogum, The PRP, Lambgoat, Consequence, Brooklyn Vegan, and more (Bloody Disgusting debuted the gory video for SICKO).
The follow-up to 2019’s VOL. 4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR, HEALTH’s fifth album is the most violent yet vulnerable of their career. It is somehow fitting that such a brutal collection of songs is at the same time their most comprehensive artistic statement.
Meticulously aggressive production detail collides with painfully personal confessions and a strange savage grace is paired with icy gallows humor… surprisingly it’s still fun as hell.
Produced by Stint (Oliver Tree, Demi Lovato) and mixed by Lars Stalfors (SALEM, The Neighbourhood), the 12-track LP joins the lineage of groundbreaking heavy acts like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry, which re-drew the borders between metal, electronic and pop music. It might be The Downward Spiral for people with at least two monitors and a vitamin D deficiency.
RAT WARS is available for pre-order on limited edition vinyl, cassette, and more HERE.
