Crippled Black Phoenix are to release a new EP entitled New Dark Age on November 27th via Season of Mist who they have recently signed to.
CBP founding member Justin Greaves said about the union with Season of Mist – “Crippled Black Phoenix are lighting lanterns and scaling the highest peak in celebration of signing with Seasons of Mist. For too long we have been placed in situations where we did not quite fit, but now we feel like we found a more understanding home, a home where people care about the end result and do not compromise. This marks a bright, creative and equally dangerous future for the band and Crippled Black Phoenix are very happy with our new partnership.”
The band has also dropped the song Spider Island online for streaming along with the following message about the track – “Our New Dark Age tour EP represents a new chapter in the Crippled Black Phoenix history. I feel like it is time to be truly free of industry and personal bullshit. It also connects what we have gone through as a band with what is going on in the big wide world. It really feels as if we are living in a new dark age. Religious and political oppression, the population being fed constant untruths – all of this reminds me of the priests in the middle ages telling folk about dog-headed monsters living in the woods, but if you repent and join the church, they will protect you. The song Spider Island is more personal. There I mentally put all the bad people… recently there have been a few people who need to go to Spider Island and live a life of torture along with all the other scumbags, who cling to power in the world.”
