Refused announce new album War Music

Refused have teamed up with Spinefarm Records and Search And Destroy Records for the release of their upcoming full-length War Music on October 18th. The lead single for the effort, “Blood Red”, will premiere next Friday, August 2nd. A teaser for the track can be found below and you can pre-save it here. The group said of the record:

“In the present moment, we who believe in the equal distribution of wealth in an egalitarian, ecological direct democracy, we who use gender-neutral pronouns and words like solidarity, moral responsibility, intersectionality and class warfare, we who believe in the Marxist dictum, ‘from each according to ability, to each according to need’ are on our back foot, on our backs, backed up against the wall, surrounded by enemies, our movement curtailed, our rights violated. It’s been clear for some time: the sun is setting on our beliefs.

But we still believe that capitalism is cancerĀ and we still believe it can be cured.We still believe that the patriarchy is cancerĀ and we still believe it too can be cured.We still believe in the power of art to transform and expand the mind.And last but by no means least:We still believe in the total violent obliteration of the one percent.Blood red until we’re fucking dead. Let’s go.”
