Eyehategod, whose eagerly-awaited new album, A History of Nomadic Behavior, arrives on March 12 (Century Media Records), has shared a third song from the forthcoming album, releasing “Built Beneath the Lies.” The song is the third preview of the 12-song album, with the New Orleans-based band releasing both the “bulldozing” song “Fake What’s Yours” and the prescient banger “High Risk Trigger”.
The album’s arrival follows a period that saw the New Orleans based band on the road for three years, preceded by Williams suffering liver failure and a transplant. “We toured our asses off for three years and that’s where A History of Nomadic Behavior basically comes from,” adds Williams before touching on his health challenge: “Death is a part of life, it’s a roll of the dice. Sometimes you take life as it comes, other times you fight to stay alive.” The album was produced by Eyehategod, Sanford Parker (Yob, Voivod) and James Whitten (Thou, High on Fire), with mixing by Whitten. The band recorded at HighTower Recording and Hypercube studios.
Eyehategod singer Mike IX Williams said of the track: “’Built Beneath the Lies’ is another acidic Eyehategod song playing in the background while the back alleys burn with nervous alcoholic tension and people all over cancel their summer plans to stare at the wall…”
