HIGH ON FIRE has released “Spewn From The Earth,” another new single from their upcoming LP, Electric Messiah. This is the second and final song the band will release from the new LP due out this Friday.
“Cryogenically frozen giant kings of old, awake and smash through the bowels of Earth to free themselves,” says vocalist and guitarist Matt Pike. “In a campaign to usurp their throne from man, and impregnate the populace once again.”
High On Fire just kicked off a European co-headlining tour this month alongside ENSLAVED. The band will then head back to The States to participate in this year’s Adult Swim Festival this coming weekend at The Row in Downtown Los Angeles before heading back to the UK.
High On Fire will tour in North America this fall on the “Speed of the Wizard” tour, presented by Revolver Magazine. The dates will be co-headlined by MUNICIPAL WASTE with Toxic Holocaust and Haunt in support. The three-week trek will kick off in Dallas, TX at Canton Hill on 11/2/18, hitting both coasts before wrapping up in San Diego, CA on 11/25/18. Tickets are now on sale.
“Spewn From The Earth” and “Electric Messiah” are now available on all streaming services and as iTunes instant grat tracks. Meaning, if you pre-order the LP on iTunes, you will receive both songs as instant downloads. High On Fire will release Electric Messiah via Entertainment One (eOne) on Friday, October 5, 2018.
“I had a dream about Lemmy,” says Pike, explaining the inspiration behind the title of High on Fire’s title track, “Electric Messiah.” “When Lemmy was still alive I always got compared to Lemmy,” the gravelly-voiced guitarist elaborates, “so I had this dream where he got pissed at me.”
“He gave me a bunch of shit, basically, and was hazing me. Not that he didn’t approve of me, but like I was being hazed. The song is me telling the world that I could never fill Lemmy’s shoes because Lemmy’s Lemmy. I wanted to pay homage to him in a great way. And it turned out to be such a good title that the guys said we should call the album Electric Messiah.”
