Crossfaith Announce New EP, Species

New Crossfaith is on the way! As well as announcing details of their upcoming EP Species, the band have also unveiled a new single, Digital Parasite.

“I felt an explosion from the song and I knew the lyrics should be aggressive and offensive,” explains vocalist Kenta Koie of the metallers' latest track. “We need to be honest to the music, to ourselves and to our audience but some people are happy to start cheating and I don’t care for it.”

As for Species – which is due out on May 22 via UNFD – the five-track release not only contains Digital Parasite, it also contains recent single Endorphin, plus new songs Truth Of Insanity, None Of Your Business (feat. Jin Dogg) and Your Song (which, according to the press release, is not an Elton John cover).

Kenta explains that his hope for the band and the Species EP is – even 11 years into their career – to keep surprising fans: “That’s the main role of the band,” he says. “I believe this EP will set the course for the band for the next 10 years. We’ve already started making more new music. We’re not going to stop.”
