Demon Lung Posts New Song Online

Pitchfork.com has premiered “Heathen Child” from Demon Lung’s forthcoming full-length debut. It’s the second song released from "The Hundredth Name," set for release via Candlelight Records on June 4th. Check out the track right here.

The conceptual album was produced by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, The Melvins, Sleep) and features artwork by English illustrator Tom Bates (Vision of Disorder, Amorphis). Discussing the song, drummer Jeremy Brenton reveals, “‘Heathen Child’ is the fifth track on the record and is definitely one of our favorites to play live. We got the gnarliest guitar tone at the end of that song. It’s the part of the story where our hero, the warlock, kills an unbaptized male child in order to make a flying potion from his fat. Don’t try this at home, especially without a sharp knife.”

The band's upcoming tour dates are:

5/23/13 Backstage Billards - Las Vegas, NV w/ Kylesa
5/30/13 Hemlock Tavern - San Francisco, CA w/ Castle
5/31/13 Whiskey Dick’s - South Lake Tahoe, CA w/ Castle
