Napalm Death Have Released A New Single, A Bellyful Of Salt And Spleen

Following the release of singles Backlash Just Because and Amoral, Birmingham grind titans Napalm Death have unveiled another new track: A Bellyful Of Salt And Spleen.

"A Bellyful Of Salt And Spleen, you could say, is about building and breaking down in the same discordant breath," explains vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway.

"The building came in the sense of many layers of coruscating industrial ambience, all marching to the beat of a home-made drum kit consisting of rubbish bins, oil drums and industrial screw parts and other bits that Shane could find littered around the studio grounds. The scope and gravity and density just demanded a vocal that was as baritone and anguished as I could push out of myself.

"The breaking down side of it was the intention to just focus minds to understand that people who traverse continents, suffocate in confined spaces or drown grasping for assistance are as keen to live in dignity and peace - and without violence and hunger – as the rest of us. As ever, quite simply, we are all human beings and if that means anything anymore, a helping hand is the least we can offer."

A Bellyful Of Salt And Spleen is taken from Napalm Death's upcoming album Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism, which is due out on September 18 via Century Media Records.
