Alien Weaponry Premiere New Music Video

Alien Weaponry‘s new official music video for their track “Whispers” has received its online premiere streaming below. According to the group, the track is inspired in part by the Foreshore and Seabed Act passed in 2004, and the Trans Pacific Partnership, signed in 2016.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Lewis de Jong:

“These are just a couple of examples of the government not respecting the voices of the people, especially Maori. Even though historic wrongs have supposedly been righted with compensation, when the same thing keeps happening it’s hard to believe there has really been a change.”

A press release for the video further explains the song’s intro, offering, ‘The spoken excerpt at the beginning of the song is part of a radio interview by well-known Radio New Zealand journalist Kim Hill with Don Brash, a former leader of two right wing political parties, and current spokesperson for a lobby group set up to advocate removal of so-called “special privileges” for Maori.’

Ex-Eyehategod Guitarist Explains His Exit

Ex-Eyehategod guitarist Brian Patton has posted the below statement regarding his recently announced departure. The band themselves intend to carry on on as a quartet in the wake of his exit.

“Touring and being away from my family started to get harder after my daughter was born. Then soon after the arrival of my son, I left for a six-week tour. While I was away, both kids had some serious health scares. Being away from my family while that happened, along with an increasingly busy tour schedule, I decided the best thing for me was to step down. To concrete this decision, after a visit with my wife’s parents earlier this year, it became clear that my in-laws’ health was rapidly fading and they needed our help. So my family and I have moved to Greensboro, North Carolina to care for them full time.

Trust me when I say that this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. After being in this band for twenty-five years — over half of my life — to say that I will miss it is a huge understatement. I already miss it. Ultimately, I want to be at home with my family. But more importantly, I am truly needed at home. I love my brothers in EYEHATEGOD, of course, and wish them nothing but the best. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and the music I have played throughout the years. I hope to see you all soon. I plan on playing again in some form or fashion. But for now, my family comes first.”
