SPITE Are Back With Mystery Drummer on ‘Thank You, Again’ Feat. Whitechapel’s Phil Bozeman

SPITE 2023

Just over a year ago, SPITE came out of the gate with remarkable record Dedicated to Flesh. The hardcore-come-deathcore band poured out their all on singles like ‘Caved In‘ and ‘Hangman‘ amongst others. The album was their first and last with Darko (US)‘s Josh ‘Baby J’ Miller who has since left the band to focus on his aforementioned pride and joy with Chelsea Grin vocalist Tom Barber.

After visiting Australia in January on Thy Art Is Murder‘s Decade of Hate tour, the SPITE cult are back with new music already, albeit with an unknown drummer, however it’s possible Baby J recorded it before leaving the band – time will tell. The new track is called ‘Thank You, Again‘ and goes incredibly hard. Also, an update just revealed is it features Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel laying down guest vocals on the belter.

The three-minute track sees the Californian band pound bass into your skull with a continuation from where Dedicated to Flesh left off. Vocalist Darius Tehrani brings his all on this one, and he’s also been busy rocking out with supergroup Project Vengeance too. The drums are particularly poignant on this track, creating some hype. Tehrani purges devil-like sounds on this one as the band spins out of tempo into relentless chaos.

Not sure whether this is a B-side, start of a new LP/EP cycle or just a standalone single – either way, new SPITE is here and they’ve left a cryptic message on their socials about it – read this how you will, but either way, they’re angry and this is the outpost for their emotions.
