Human Releasing New Single "Teenage Bonesaw Massacre," Celebrating 20th Anniversary

Human has checked in with the following announcement about celebrating 20 years of being together and releasing a new single:

"2012 is a very important year for Human, the four piece death metal act hailing from the earthquake riddled city of Christchurch, New Zealand. Not only does it mark the band's 20th year of creating psychotic metal in it’s home territory, but it also marks a true return to form... the lunatics are back and it’s about to get messy.

"Human has chosen to release a brand new single worldwide in May 2012. The track 'Teenage Bonesaw Massacre' showcases the band in perfect balance - heavy, fast paced, and also lyrically amusing at the same time (the song itself is written from the perspective of a hunting party in pursuit of a group of teenage campers in the woods) and it captures Human’s ‘death metal for the fun of it’ attitude perfectly.

"And while the group already boasts a 3-way vocal frontline, the idea of adding some guest vocalists to the song became too much of a good idea to resist. Enter the vocal talents of Ross Sewage (from Oakland, California gore masters Impaled) and Adde Mitroulis (from Sweden’s crazy grindcore merchants Birdflesh and General Surgery). Production credits go to Nik ‘Captain Catsquid’ Coulter, who has managed to capture HUMAN’s live insanity so well in the making of the single."

Vocalist / guitarist / co-founder Scott Spatcher-Harrison explains, “When Human began we didn’t have a serious bone between us. We were metal fans that wanted to head bang and write about gross, idiotic things. More importantly, we were all about having fun and laughing at ourselves. Nowadays, you see a million and one metal bands around the world and they’re all the same - taking themselves pretty seriously, and it made me glad that we didn’t (and never have) fit into that mould. I mean, we smile in band photos y’know? I’m not saying that HUMAN is a joke band at all. Far from it. We like being mental and that comes across in our music and lyrics pretty well. And what could be more honest than that!”

“Teenage Bonesaw Massacre” will debut on New Zealand radio airwaves via The Axe Attack from 8pm (NZST) on Sunday, May 6th 2012 (streaming live at this location). It will then receive airplay worldwide and be streaming free on the official Human website here.
