Your Demise unveil video for new song ‘Karma’

Posted in News with tags , , , on 17th January 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Taken from the band’s forthcoming new EP Cold Chillin’ , Karma – which has been made available for free download – is a feral musical uppercut, loaded with riffs, grooves and vocal venom.

The accompanying video was shot and directed by upcoming director Felix ‘Phoenix’ Dickinson, and continues the Your Demise tradition of striking visual statements that, more often than not, set the Internet ablaze; be it via their album artwork, merchandise or music videos, Your Demise are not a band to follow trends or convention, and Karma is certainly no different.

Enlisting the help of their fans, friends and Britain’s inclement January weather during Karma’s intense 48 hour production, Your Demise have once again returned with a bang: say what you will about them, this ain’t a band of half measures, and they don’t do things quietly.

The EP will be unleashed on February 7th, 2013, to coincide with the band’s UK headline dates, and marks the bands’ first official release since their departure from Visible Noise Records. For the EP‘s release, the quintet have teamed up with long time collaborators Impericon.com and Leeds based D.I.Y label Pinky Swear Records, with Impericon handling the CD edition and PSR an exclusive vinyl pressing. “Impericon and Pinky Swear are both very dedicated to music, and separate themselves from the bullshit that can hang around in the music industry,” says Stuart; “They have shown us great passion and support, and have helped us in our mission to create a really special and personal release, which will also be very cool for our fans.

To support the EP release, Your Demise will headline the UK in February 2013, and they’re enlisting the help of their friends from around the world to do so; joining YD will be new UK hopes Heights, hotly tipped Canadian hardcore band Counterparts and eclectic Japanese mob Fact.
