Cattle Decapitation has released the studio version and music video for their latest single, “We Eat Our Young,” which they previously performed live a few months ago. The track is set to be featured on their upcoming album Terrasite coming out on May 12, and is a powerful, end-of-the-world style song.
According to guitarist Josh Elmore: “After a record like Death Atlas, you have to make a turn. Everything about that album – the concept, artwork, music, etc. – was a final statement. The only way to move forward is rebirth. In approaching the newest record, it was not only necessary to keep the musical trajectory the band has been aiming towards since the beginning, but also to further explore the ambient/textural elements that were part of Death Atlas“
Vocalist Travis Ryan said: “I already had the concept idea from years back and since Death Atlas was so dark and brooding, I wanted a completely opposite effect – I wanted this to take place in the daylight. I’ve always found daytime horror to be really unsettling so I wanted to make sure what was going on on the cover took place in the light of day, which also finds its place within the lyrics.”
