Their new single, ‘The Shovel And The Cross’, manages to hint at classic influences like Roky Erickson, New Model Army and Black Sabbath, while still maintaining a bold anything-goes approach that lets singer Lars Nedland showcase his ability to shift from an uber-cool, dark post-punk timbre to formidable theatrical heights with ease.
Anti will be released on March 12th 2021.
The Shovel And The Cross is accompanied by an artfully crafted music video, which you can watch below:
Frontman Lars Nedland comments on the song:
“Facing the absurd is overwhelming. Sometimes you just feel like digging your own grave. After all, we are here against our will!
This song is about the darkness we face while trying to figure out what the hell we’re supposed to be doing here.
The video goes suitably with that theme as it shows my face quite literally falling to pieces. You know, normal, Norwegian stuff. It’s dark here. We try to entertain ourselves.
Want to see me lose face? This is your chance!”
