Refused announce new album 'War Music'

After the release of their brilliant comeback record 'Freedom' back in 2015, their first in eighteen years, Refused have now announced their plans for a new studio record, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'War Music' will become the Swedish punks' fifth LP to date, and is set to be released on the 18th October via Spinefarm Records / Search & Destroy, with the lead single 'Blood Red' arriving this Friday 2nd August.

Speaking about their return, the band added, "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 cancer and we still believe it can be cured. We still believe that the patriarchy is cancer 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.”
