Nequient is now streaming their new single "Death Bridge" alongside a music video animated by Cory J. Peak of Closet Witch. The song spans everything from grinding riffs to more thrashy sections, ultimately providing you with a wide range of heaviness to headbang to!
“I don't write a ton of lyrics about the trials and triumphs of being in a rock 'n' roll band, but when I heard the progression of riffs that our guitarist Patrick came up with for 'Death Bridge' and the revving sounds that our bassist Keenan added to the intro, it conjured a very specific image in my mind," said vocalist Jason Kolkey. "Every band that's ever hit the road has the experience where you're speeding down the highway to your next show when the weather turns on you and you start having some uncomfortable thoughts about your own mortality.”
"Cory and the rest of Closet Witch are old friends of ours: We shared a bill with them in Iowa City for the very first show that Nequient ever played outside of Illinois, and afterward, Cory showed us some of his hand-drawn animation. We were really excited for the opportunity to apply that creativity to one of our songs. We went with 'Death Bridge' because it's a fun, thrashy tune with some great drumming by Chris and because Cory felt the lyrical narrative lent itself to a visual treatment. From there, we gave him free rein as he created the fictional band (Deerslayer!) and crafted the bizarre, hallucinatory sequence during the instrumental break. He captured the wild shifts in emotions that are inherent in the song while lending the video his unique style and sense of humor."
