Blood Command have released their new single “The End is Her”, the second glimpse of the band’s new vocalist, Nikki Brumen (ex-Pagan).
The self-described ‘deathpop’ band are a one-of-a-kind proposition. Hardcore meets metal meets pop meets punk, Blood Command have previously been called ‘one of the world’s best kept secrets‘ by Rock Sound, achieved one of the Albums of the Year in Kerrang! and applauded by Metal Hammer, among others.
Alongside the release of their new single, Blood Command have also launched their Australian merch store. View the collection here
Blood Command mastermind Yngve Andersen comments: “’The End is Her” is for the losers, for the wallflowers and for the people who never quite fit in. It’s a song about feeling so invisible that no matter how loud you scream, no one will hear you. For anyone who burns so brightly but nobody else sees even a flicker of the flame.
I wrote the lyrics at time when I was feeling weak and alone but used this darkness as ammo to become stronger. You never know what is going on in someone’s mind or what they are capable of, so I want this song to remind people to never underestimate the outcasts. That we have the ability to use the doubt of others to ignite something inside of us – to strike a match and light the world on fire.
It felt right to release this track next, as this was the first song I showed Nikki when I first asked her to join the band. I knew she could scream, but I’d never heard her actually sing, so I gave her this song to record and send back to me, just to make sure she was the right fit. I was actually playing a show when she sent the demo back and let’s just say, I partied really hard that night. It was a dream come true.
We’ve shown the heavier side of the new era of Blood Command with “A Villain’s Monologue“. Now it’s time to shake it up with “The End is Her” – quintessential Death Pop, this is the anthem for anyone who has ever thought it won’t get better but has found solace in realising they aren’t the only one who is suffering.”
Blood Command have previously toured with Biffy Clyro, Kvelertak, Rolo Tomassi,and Skindred, following the release of their acclaimed EP Return of the Arsonist, the conceptual successor to 2011’s Hand Us The Alphamale EP. The band have also shared the stage with Refused, Tragedy, ComebackKid, and Gallows, and have played Download Festival, The GreatEscape, 2000trees and Roskilde festivals, among others. Blood Command will embark on an extensive tour of Europe with Kvelertak in 2022.
Now with celebrated UK label Hassle Records and with Nikki at the front, Blood Command‘s power and prestige only rises higher.
