'New Burn Order' is not just the band's first piece of music in two years but also the first with new bassist/vocalist Toby Thomas.
And it's quite the introduction. Soft and haunting atmospheres build into some unhinged and devastatingly technical heaviness before dragging you back in for a beautifully punishing finale.
Vocalist Alex Reade had this to say about why the song is such a personal release:
“There's a line that says 'You said you were ashamed to share my DNA, I’m sorry to tell you we are counterparts – mirror image, blurred view'... I want to tell them we are cut from the same cloth, my destruction is their destruction, my shame is their shame. They don’t have what it takes to survive this and I’m going to show them I do.
"While you are not responsible for what happens to you, but you are for how you react. True freedom is acceptance that all our feelings, hurts, pains, vices, they belong to us now and we must battle them alone – carry them with pride – I’m not burning to be annihilated but to be cleansed and set free."
