Facing The Gallows, Johannesburg’s longtime champions of metalcore – if not indeed for the genre in South Africa as a whole – have released a music video today for their new single ‘Filth’. This track samples the band’s work on a forthcoming album, anticipated for release in early 2016.
In an interview published at www.lwmag.co.za, the band describe ‘Filth’ as having a very different musical feel to other current material, including clean singing and bouncier riffs, with newer material rather being characterized by faster and heavier sounds.
The album remains as yet untitled, but the band promises more single releases before the final completed work becomes available. In the meantime, Facing The Gallows will be performing live at South Africa’s most iconic music festival, Oppikoppi, on the long weekend of 6-9 August 2015.
