NAPALM DEATH debuts video explaining new album title, “Utilitarian”

By on February 8, 2012

In anticipation of the release of their 14th studio album on February 27th in Europe and February 28th in North America, the legendary NAPALM DEATH has posted a new video explaining the meaning behind the title of their upcoming album, Utilitarian. To watch the video, click the link below:

The first (of four) track-by-track video clips for Utilitarian was also recently posted here with NAPALM’s shouter, Mark “Barney” Greenway, explaining the lyrics and meaning behind the following songs: “Circumspect”, “Errors In The Signal”, “Everyday Pox” and “Protection Racket”. In addition, this track-by-track feature is spiced-up with audio samples of all the new album songs that Barney refers to.

Stay tuned for three more track-by-track clips coming soon! Enjoy every new week with a new video until Utilitarian drops.

To show their support for the Occupy movement and to provide fans with the latest news about their politically-charged Utilitarian, NAPALM DEATH launched an “Occupy Napalm” Facebook tab with downloadable Occupy-themed stencils and screensavers, plus a special video teaser for the album created by Mitch Harris (guitar, vocals). This Facebook tab is the place to go for everything NAPALM DEATH, so go Occupy Napalm now!

The band is already confirmed to play the 2012 editions of Wacken Open Air (Germany), Hellfest (France), Maryland Deathfest (USA), and several shows from late January onwards. Check the dates below to see when NAPALM DEATH will be coming to a city near you!
