Song Premiere

BAPTISTS Are "Calling" You Out To Jam Their Killer New Track

They want you to wet your pants and bang your head

I’ve done a pretty horrible job at keeping my love for Vancouver’s Baptists a secret since their debut release. So it should come as no surprise that I'm stoked to present a new song from their crushing Kurt Ballou produced follow up, Bloodmines.

The track, “Calling,” is a stand out song that really features everything you love about Baptists, at a slower tempo than usual. It’s one of the many ways you’ll find them exploring new territory on Bloodmines, while maintaining their brand of pure intensity paired with incredible chops.

I asked Danny Marshall (Guitars) how the song came together, to which he replied:

I had wanted to try a mid-paced song that was really bass driven for quite a while. Bands like Shellac, Jesus Lizard, Young Widows, too – I really like how the rhythm section plugs along at a really menacing pace in a lot of their songs, and wanted to try something a bit more in that vein. It was a little outside of our comfort zone at first, and I wasn't sure if it was even going to suit our band. In my mind the song also really hinged on a long drum fill kind of thing, at kind of an awkward pace and feel. It took some work to come up with exactly what Nick wanted to do, but I think it worked out really well. Personally, this is my favorite song on the album.

Bloodmines is available October 13th via Southern Lord Records.
