Watch: black midi ‘Eat Men Eat’

black midi – the UK-based trio of Geordie Greep (guitar, vocals), Cameron Picton (bass, vocals) and Morgan Simpson (drums) – present a new single ‘Eat Men Eat’ from their upcoming album Hellfire, out July 15th. Watch its accompanying video, directed by Maxim Kelly below!

Musically, ‘Eat Men Eat’ is a fusion of Rock and Flamenco, the latter being the working title found on early setlists. The lyrics, written by Picton, tell the story of a couple’s quest to overcome a militaristic Mine Captain cursed with an acid tongue as well as their own uncomfortable internal grumblings. The recording also features more than 50 fan submitted recordings layered into the end of the piece as well as palmas and various other percussive elements provided by Demi García Sabat.

Written in isolation in London after the release of last year’s Cavalcade, Hellfire builds on the melodic and harmonic elements of its predecessor, while expanding the brutality and intensity of their debut, Schlagenheim.
