Ex-IRON MAIDEN Singer BLAZE BAYLEY Releases Video For 'Eating Lies' Song

"Eating Lies", the new Richard Pembridge-directed video from British heavy metal vocalist Blaze Bayley (IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE), can be seen below. The song is taken from his ninth solo album, "Endure And Survive", which was released on March 3 via Blaze Bayley Recording. The disc was recorded at Birmingham, England's Robannas Studios and said to be "an exciting and enthralling sequel" to his 2016 release "Infinite Entanglement", which was the first of a trilogy of releases following a sci-fi concept and storyline.

Throughout the "Endure And Survive" world tour, Blaze is being backed by his main recording and touring musicians, picked from British metal band ABSOLVA and including Chris Appleton (guitar, backing vocals), Martin McNee (drums), Karl Schramm (bass, backing vocals).

In addition to the established bandmembers as above from ABSOLVA, "Endure And Survive" also contains a talented array of collaborators: Luke Appleton (ICED EARTH, ABSOLVA) on backing vocals; Michelle Sciarrotta on nylon acoustic, backing vocals, voice actor; Jo Robinson on backing vocals; Mel Adams on backing vocals; Liz Owen on backing vocals; Thomas Zwijsen on nylon acoustic, Anne Bakker on violin, backing vocals; Corvin Bahn (Uli Jon Roth) on accordion; Aine Brewer (voice actor); and Rob Toogood (voice actor) on backing vocals.

The spectacular album artwork was created by Andreas Sandberg, with additional images from Christopher Steenstrup who is also working on a Blaze Bayley video game.

"Endure And Survive" was recorded between October and December 2016, produced by Blaze Bayley and Chris Appleton, mixed and engineered by Miguel Seco, mastered by Ade Emsley (IRON MAIDEN, TANK, PHIL CAMPBELL). As with the previous record, the songwriting has been a collaboration between Blaze, Chris Appleton and Michelle Sciarrotta.

Bayley told AXS.com about "Endure And Survive": "The trilogy starts last year with 'Infinite Entanglement', which is the story of someone being selected for a mission to go right across the galaxy to a new earth-like planet discovered by telescope. He discovers that he's not actually in a tight-fitting spacesuit, but his consciousness has been downloaded into a machine body. He only discovers that when he's on the mission. Then he has to decide, 'Well, I think like a human. I feel like a human, but I have no flesh and blood. Am I human?' And, it's a question of identity and going to a new place with no regrets and no past, but leaving behind everything that you know and consider to be home and knowing it's a one-way journey. On part two, 'Endure And Survive', it is the end of this mission. It takes a thousand years to get to the new earth-like planet; there is no faster-than-light travel, so he has to 'endure' this journey of a thousand years. As he gets close to the planet, he starts to realize that he was never meant to get there. The ship's computer and the ship itself are programmed to get rid of him, to throw him out into space, to treat him like a piece of junk. Now, his mission is accomplished, his DNA is never supposed to reach that point. And that is the 'survival' part. He has to survive this attempt on his life, the attempt to obliterate him, to destroy him. That's why it's 'Endure And Survive'.

"This second album is much darker, but it also has songs like 'Fight Back', which is about out of sheer spite, not giving in. You know they want to get rid of you and you're just hanging on for sheer spite. 'Dawn Of The Dead Son' is about coming back from it, making a decision in your own mind that you will not let go. That you will not give up, no matter what, as the drowning man, you refuse to drown. That's what it's about.

"There are many of these subjects on the album and it's much darker. So far, live, everywhere we've played in the U.S., we've played a lot of new songs from the 'Endure And Survive' album and from 'Infinite Entanglement' and fans have gotten really into it. They've gone down really well and the album is doing well."
