Heavy metal purveyors INCITE are back with the crushing new single “Deadbeat” from their forthcoming EP, due out later this year via Minus Head Records.
While the song’s lyrics may be inspired by society’s lazy, less savory characters, fans will surely identify with its video, which shows the band members living repetitive, “deadbeat” lives while cooped up during quarantine.
Produced by Steve Evetts (DevilDriver, Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Soulfly) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music, “Deadbeat” is INCITE’s first single featuring new guitarist Eli Santana (Huntress, Holy Grail). “Deadbeat” is available digitally at https://incite.bandcamp.com/album/deadbeat-single, as well as on Spotify, iTunes and Deezer.
As the foursome nears two decades as a band, the renegade disciples of trailblazing metal architects like Slayer, Sepultura, and Machine Head, INCITE continues to raise the torch for trend-killing and hipster-smashing metal. INCITE is as much a part of the fabric of the style championed by Pantera as the surge of newer bands like Power Trip and has forged its own identity over the course of five albums.
The group’s last album, 2019’s Built to Destroy, was a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal with reverence for the past, and boasted a progressed, matured sound for INCITE. The group’s upcoming EP promises to deliver on these elements and more, and will certainly be praised as INCITE’s finest work to date.
