Alien Weaponry Unlock Title Track From Forthcoming Album ‘Tangaroa’

New Zealand metal act Alien Weaponry are set to unveil their forthcoming album, Tangaroa this September and have dropped the album’s title track this week. Not ones to shy away from speaking out about issues that should be made aware of often, this one proves to be anything but.

Clocking in at just over six minutes, ‘Tangaroa’ is an electric blend of metal grooves and kicks while delivering a message both in English and the band’s native tongue Maori, detailing the effects of climate change. Teaming up with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for the single release, lead vocalist/guitarist Lewis de Jong shares:

“We decided to write this song about how the ocean is being suffocated by humans and their waste. The ocean is an important part of my life, and it’s important to protect it.”

Drummer Henry de Jong further highlights:

“‘Tangaroa’ is a heavy and angry message about how we are destroying the ocean with pollution and overfishing. The video ties in with this message, with us drowning in plastic conveying the struggle of ocean life.”

Alien Weaponry’s album Tangaroa is out September 17 through Napalm Records. Pre-order here
