Melodic metalcore Brits Bleed Again have dropped their video for "Decimate", the second track taken from their highly-anticipated debut album, Momentum. The album will be released through recently signed US label Sliptrick Records on May 1st.
Vocalist, James Dawson talks about the musical and lyrical inspirations of the song: "Decimate has definitely been influenced by my love for mainstream hardcore. We wanted to make a track that would have very little, or zero singing on it, a track that hits hard throughout. When we were writing this song, we knew straight away that it wasn't like anything we had done before. We knew it would stick out on the album, but in a good way."
"Lyrically this song has many different meanings. My first thoughts were that we take for granted what our past generations did for us in this country in WW1 and WW2. This grew into more political thinking in that I feel at times as if the government are constantly trying to scare us and control us into believing everything they say. Also, I was thinking at times that our past generations had a more simple life, even if it wasn't a very wealthy one. I feel at times that if we are to repair what I believe are very deep cracks in our society's, that we may have to destroy everything and start again. Rebuild."
