Sydney progressive metalcore crew Northlane have followed up their experimental 2019 album Alien with a frantic new single, Clockwork.

Frontman Marcus Bridge explains that their new effort – which also serves as the official theme song for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Oceanic Nationals esports League – reflects "the pressures and anxieties I felt as we jumped back into writing after an uninspiring year.

"I always want to push myself creatively but with life on hold and with no end in sight, I felt empty and lonely, running out of time as our self-imposed deadline approached."
