Swedish metallers SOILWORK have released a brand new song called "Feverish". The track is being made available digitally along with a new version of their last album's single "Stålfågel", featuring ARCH ENEMY singer Alissa White-Gluz.
Commented the band: "We have all been feverish. We have all sometimes given in to the temperature rising inside of us, being ridden by a ghost that made us do things we didn’t want to do, but it somehow felt good afterwards, like a purging of the mortal organism that confines us.
"Some people say that our bodies were originally designed to have a higher temperature. That when humanity first evolved our bodies were constantly feverish, the warmth subduing our control mechanisms and the neurotic, nervous behaviour we seem to be so prone to these days. And that might be one of the reasons we were able to proliferate and conquer the world. and subdue its natural inhabitants. Perhaps it's time to let go again, to unleash the fire still burning within us, biding its time and still hoping to one day be able to take over."
SOILWORK will release "The Feverish Trinity" over the next five months, a trilogy of songs with accompanying videos that, according to the band, will "celebrate the Babylonian Death Goddesses that once made the world a more Feverish and exciting place."
SOILWORK's eleventh studio album, "Verkligheten", was released in January via Nuclear Blast. The first-edition digipack, as well as the vinyl versions, also contain the exclusive "Underworld" EP, containing four more songs. The digipack version also features special artwork with lavish foil print.
"Verkligheten" is SOILWORK's first to feature drummer Bastian Thusgaard, who replaced Dirk Verbeuren in 2016.
