MASSIVE WAGONS RELEASE MIKE EXETER-PRODUCED SINGLE "ROBOT (TRUST IN ME)"

English anthemic rockers MASSIVE WAGONS have released a brand new track from their upcoming album 'Full Nelson', which releases on August 10th worldwide.

Following on from a triumphant debut performance at the UK's Download Festival two weeks ago, the band have now returned with another treat for their fans - the grooving, heavy hitter of a track, "Robot (Trust in Me)", for which the band worked with famed BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST producer/engineer Mike Exeter.

Listen to "Robot (Trust in Me)" now here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3ZS-VMl-lU>.

MASSIVE WAGONS frontman Baz Mills comments: "Robot (Trust in Me) is us having a dig at angry online conspiracy theorists.  For me, you can believe what you want - flat earth, dragons, lizard people, whatever; I'm totally cool with that - but I have experienced on numerous occasions the seething inner rage of the online theorist when people simply don't agree or buy into it, which is also very cool with me haha, and it doesn't sit well with said jobless, high-as-a-kite, angry angry man.  'You're all sheep!!!  Are you fckin blind?!  Can't you see the numbers?!?  If you take the number of letters in the numbers six six six and multiply them by how many brain cells I've destroyed constantly smoking super strength weed staring at my computer, then minus Jesus' age, subtract my Jobseeker's Allowance and then divide by 9-11, multiply again by the combined age of Barack Obama's children and mother-in-law, you will come to the exact day and time the world might end!!!  CAN'T YOU FCKIN SEE IT YOU SHEEP!!!  YOU'RE ALL GONNA DIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!!'...  Yeah those people.  I deleted from Facebook, surprise surprise, a very angry man with some horrible views, which is why I wrote a song about him.  The track is not really like anything else on the album, it's got a heavy groove, a little psychedelic perhaps.  We really, really like it."

On working with Mike Exeter, Baz adds: "We were immensely privileged to work with Mr. Mike Exeter on this track.  He brought his infinite production wisdom to it.  If SABBATH, Iommi and Mr. Dio think he's the man, then who are we to disagree?  Really cool guy, great to work with and he transformed the track into what you hear.  We loved recording it; hope you dig it."

MASSIVE WAGONS CONDEMN INTOLERANCE AND RACISM IN NEW TRACK "BILLY BALLOON HEAD"

English anthemic rockers MASSIVE WAGONS have dropped another surprise new track today from their upcoming album 'Full Nelson', once again providing a damning social commentary wrapped in a catchy banger of a tune.

Following on from their previous single "China Plates", which takes a candid look at the rise of social media and people's compulsion to share every aspect of their lives online, the band's new song "Billy Balloon Head" this time takes aim at the growing culture of intolerance, ignorance and racism which is sadly prevalent in modern society.

"I really have no idea if the term 'balloon head' is one used anywhere else in the world but where I'm from," comments frontman Baz Mills.  "Maybe it is, I don't know - but if you're a balloon head then as far as I'm concerned you're the sort of person with nothing much in the way of being nice, being tolerant, being open-minded, or having much going on upstairs full stop.  The song's a stab at racists, ignorant people - c***s, basically.  I can't stand c***s.  I've no time for it; be nice or fuck off.  That, in a roundabout way, is what Billy Balloon Head is all about.  If you're gonna be a twat, fuck off and be a twat somewhere else, on your own.  Bottom of the sea preferably."

Check out the new song "Billy Balloon Head" now here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMhk1KAOh6o>.

Listen to the previously-released tracks "China Plates" here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFVtAfYClk0> and "Under No Illusion" here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o7J3qmy1Uw>.

'Full Nelson' is due to be released worldwide on August 10th and features 12 roaring tracks, including a new version of "Back to the Stack" - the band's tribute to legendary STATUS QUO rocker Rick Parfitt - as well as the future single "Robot (Trust in Me)", for which the band worked with famed BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST engineer Mike Exeter.

Pre-order 'Full Nelson' now on limited edition signed CD and vinyl here <http://www.earache.com/fullnelson>.  The album is also available to pre-order on iTunes, including instant downloads of all three tracks released so far, here <http://bit.ly/fullnelson-itunes>.

NAPALM DEATH'S "YOU SUFFER" FOREVER IMMORTALISED IN BITCOIN'S BLOCKCHAIN; EARACHE LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE

Pioneering British independent record label Earache has launched its brand-new website, giving it its first full refresh since its original launch in 1995. The website serves to celebrate all that Earache has achieved over the years... from humble independent record label to international rock powerhouse with stages at Glastonbury Festival and indeed forthcoming at the 2018 Boomtown Fair.
 
See the site in all its glory at www.earache.com
 
Ironically, with the somewhat delayed website launch, Earache is also proud to announce its latest tech adventure. Recently, legendary Earache band NAPALM DEATH hilariously featured in hit comedy show Silicon Valley. Their 1.316 second song "You Suffer" featured as an alert for character Gilfoyle, letting him know when Bitcoin dropped below a certain price. Certified as the world's shortest song by The Guinness Book of World Records the track featured on the band's 1987 debut album 'Scum' and has since taken on a life of its own.
 
See the clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS1KcjkWdoU
 
To celebrate the event, Earache have created the official @NapalmDeathBot on Twitter, tweeting the price of Bitcoin hourly, letting you know if you need to remotely trigger your rig at home. Furthermore, to cement the band and song in the annuls of time, Earache have encoded "Napalm Death – You suffer but why?" into the blockchain, marketing a landmark first for an independent record label.
 
Owner and founder Digby Pearson comments: “Although we are positive that Napalm Death aren’t going anywhere anytime soon – their Glastonbury performance for us last year proved that – we are now ensuring that the band will now live on forever in the blockchain.”

In an age where information and opinions can easily be suppressed and removed from online records, blockchain technology has emerged as an unlikely tool for battling censorship, prompting student activists in China to turn to the technology in the fight against government curbs.  The very nature of the tech means that all transactions become a permanent part of the blockchain and cannot ever be removed or amended.

Using a method known as Base58, Bitcoin addresses are encoded as a string of alphanumeric text, where it's possible to append a comment which itself becomes a permanent part of the chain.  It's here that NAPALM DEATH's thought-provoking lyrics have been enshrined for all time - a simple but poignant message to transcend the ages.

Watch the official video for "You Suffer" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Z1IGjr2cT0
