Racetraitor is now streaming their brief, crushing new single "Pastoral Monolith" featuring vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, The (International) Noise Conspiracy). It's a short one, but it'll kick your ass. In keeping with its Lyxzén-ness, the video for "Pastoral Monolith" is an homage to The (International) Noise Conspiracy's for "Smash It Up".
"The song is about the lasting and devastating impacts of British colonialism in Nigeria," said Racetraitor of the single. "In the past few weeks, we have seen Israels attacks on Gaza which also have their historical roots in British colonialism. The song features guest vocals from Dennis Lyxzén, who is a longtime friend and co-conspirator of the band. The video has images and quotes from various activists and artists who have fought back against colonialism, settler colonialism, and their capitalist systems."
Racetraitor's upcoming record Creation And The Timeless Order Of Things features additional contributions from Tim Kinsella (Joan of Arc, Cap'n Jazz), Stan Liszewaki (Terminal Nation), and Sanket Lama (Chepang), plus Ethan Lee McCarthy (Primitive Man) contributing a noise track.
Creation And The Timeless Order Of Things is out November 17. Pre-orders are available here.
