HEALTH Announce New Album VOL 4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR

Back in 2015, HEALTH returned from a six-year hiatus to release the industrial-fueled Death Magic. Since then, we’ve gotten a collection of remixes and smattering of collaborations including 2017’s “Hard To Be a God" with NOLIFE, the Soccer Mommy featuring and Purity Ring-produced single “MASS GRAVE,” “BODY/PRISON” with Perturbator, and the Youth Code collab “INNOCENCE.”

Today, they’ve officially announced a new album will be dropping in 2019 titled VOL. 4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR. The quasi-title track has been shared alongside an intense video by Zev Deans that sees a team of men shooting machine guns throughout dark and (hopefully) abandoned homes. Flashes of song titles off the new album appear, as well as a phone number at the end: (213) 259-3841. I attempted to call the number but when a voice said “HEALTH phone line, what’s up?,” I quickly hung up (I have a paralyzing fear of talking on the phone). In the name of journalism, though, I pulled myself together and called again. Unfortunately, no one answered this time so I left a voicemail letting them know I was writing a piece and inquiring about what the phone line was intended for. We’ll see if I get a call back.

VOL. 4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR is described as the band’s “heaviest, most genre-obliterating album” and is due out Feb. 8, 2019 via Loma Vista Recordings. The record was produced by frequent collaborator Lars Stalfors (St. Vincent, Lil Peep). HEALTH will tour extensively behind the new album, with a stop in Seattle on Sunday, April 14 at Neumos. Listen to “SLAVES OF FEAR” below.
