Ahead of their return to Bloodstock Festival this week, Irish groove-metallers, Dead Label have released another new track. Listen to ‘Forget the Names’ below…

Following previously released singles, ‘Slaves’ and ‘Authority of Self”, Dead Label have, today, released ‘Forget the Names’ – a chilling ode to the controversial and cruel mass grave found at Bon Secours St Marys mother and baby catholic order in Tuam.

Vocalist, Dan O’Grady┬ácomments on the new single; “The song is about the Mother and Baby home in Tuam where the bodies of all the children were found in the septic tank. When that story broke, it made me so sick and so angry that the lyrics just poured out of me. It was also, around the time that we were writing the music for this dark, ominous song.

Danny had brought in these punishing riffs that were a little different than he had been writing up to that point, and the lyrics just fit the tone of the music so well, that it came together really quickly after that.

Listen to ‘Forget the Names‘ below:

Dead Label are performing on the Ronnie James Dio stage at Bloodstock Open Air this coming Sunday, August 13th alongside, Megadeth, Helloween, Ugly Kid Joe, Sepultura, Decapitated, Tribulation and many more.
