Betraying The Martyrs Unveils New Vocalist

Betraying the Martyrs have announced their brand new frontman Rui Martins and release new single / video "Black Hole," out now via new label Out Of Line Music. You can check out the video below. "Black Hole" is the first piece of new music the band offer after their critically acclaimed 2019 album, "Rapture," showcasing their new lineup and welcoming Rui Martins as their new frontman.

This brand new song depicts how a toxic relationship can imprison and deceive someone, eventually going through all the phases that one usually has to go through, to realise what is wrong and finally be set free. It doesn't matter how hard one tries if the other person is unwilling to improve themselves and their mutual relationship. To suffer is to learn, but to also kill a part of us. The protagonist is reborn at the end, but he paid a high price, and the scars are visible.


About the band's philosophy and how Rui contributes to the musical work of Betraying The Martyrs, the band make clear: "We DEFINITELY upgraded to BTM 2.0! Most of us are perfectionists about our own art, so we're super stoked and excited to have people's opinion and reactions about this new track. We're well aware that changing the frontman can be a little tricky sometimes (even if bands like Northlane, Chelsea Grin, and Lorna Shore showed us that it could be very successful,) but we're very confident Rui's the perfect fit, and we hope people will welcome our new recruit with open arms and show him the support he deserves. Rui's abilities will definitely take things to a whole new level, as he has a great approach for both the heavy side and the more melodic part of our songwriting.

"Rui knows perfectly what BTM was and also is now in 2021. He has a great vision of what BTM fans expect and also where we want to go. Rui is bringing a lot of great ideas for his vocals, lyric-wise, melody-wise...and his vocal range is incredible: he can go from super heavy guttural screams to high pitched beautiful clean vocals; it's a real pleasure to be able to work with someone so talented, and we're definitely planning on using his range to its maximum potential to serve BTM's upcoming music."

Betraying The Martyrs Discusses Brexit

Aaron Matts from Betraying The Martyrs has released a new video discussing Brexit, which can be seen below. The band comments:

"We're living in divisive times, in a time where we should be celebrating nothing but diversity; the so called 'liberation' of England from the EU has been voted for by the majority and therefore should be celebrated, but without a single ounce of satisfaction to those who voted out with misconceived racial and anti humanitarian agendas. Share love, share music."

New album "The Resilient" dropped back in January via Sumerian Records and is available at this location.
