Bass Drum of Death have released a track from their upcoming album, Rip This. “For Blood” is loud, abrasive garage rock at its most potent, with guitars working like bricks smashing throw windows and the wall of noise behind everything like the artillery battery from which their sonic assault can be waged. Speaking to Esquire about the cut, frontman John Barrett gave the following statement regarding the song:
“With ‘For Blood’ I wanted to play around with the ‘quiet-loud-quiet’ formula a bit, since most of our songs are just loud all the way through. Figured it’d be oddly fitting, since the song is about being really fucking hung over.”
You can listen to “For Blood” above. Rip This is set for release on October 7.
