London punk band SOLDIERS OF DESTRUCTION have reformed after a lengthy hiatus and have announced the release of their debut album, Cause And Affect on June 18th via American’t Records. The four-piece, who are now based in Las Vegas, NV, have today revealed the album’s lead track, Undefeated, with an accompanying lyric video. Check it out below.
Frontman Morat tells us, “Undefeated came about when that useless orange turd was in the White House, but it pertains just as much to Boris Johnson and his muppets in the UK. It’s very easy to get downhearted when they rob everyone blind to line their own pockets and literally get away with murder, but for every step they take back to the dark ages, we take a step forward. Gay marriage is legal, weed is legal or decriminalized in a lot of places, and as slow as progress seems, there is still progress. So long as we never give in, we are undefeated.”
The album features seven older songs which the band have updated and seven brand new songs, with Morat intimating that, “It’s kind of cool that our new fans don’t know which songs are old and which are new, because we’ve kept the same attitude.”
The collection also features a guest vocal appearance from Nick Oliveri (Kyuss/QOTSA) on two tracks, Amphetamines and Also Gazes. Morat explains; “I’ve known Nick for years. When we recorded the song Amphetamines, it was a no-brainer to ask him if he’d scream on it.”
Stay tuned for more news from SOLDIERS OF DESTRUCTION soon.
