UK metal band SHVPES have shared a new track.
“Two Minutes Of Hate” is set to feature on the band’s debut album, PAIN. JOY. ECSTASY. DESPAIR, due for release via Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records on the 14th of October.
The song and its video come hot on the heels of the band sharing previous tracks “God Warrior” and “False Teeth.”
SHVPES frontman, Griffin Dickinson says of the new album: “As a concept, this album is about finding the beauty in whatever situation you’re in. Your ability to feel pain, to feel despair is ultimately what allows you to embrace the feeling of joy or ecstasy. It’s like yin & yang. ‘Pain. Joy. Ecstasy. Despair.’ gave me a platform to expel 24 years’ worth of frustration and turn it into something positive; something I can be proud of and something, I hope, the listener can find solace in.”
Check out the video for “Two Minutes Of Hate” below.
PAIN. JOY. ECSTASY. DESPAIR. has been produced by Carl Bown & Jim Pinder (While She Sleeps, Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine).
SHVPES will be appearing as sole support to Asking Alexandria at two very special sold out UK shows this summer.
