God Complex Release First Single Breeding Filth From Upcoming 'Created Sick' EP

Tuesday, 07 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

God Complex are set to make one hell of a mark with the release of their forthcoming 'Created Sick' EP, due out this autumn.

Despite only forming just last year, the Merseyside band have put out the blistering singles Hate Runs Through Me and Insignificant, while their live schedule has included tours with bands such as Employed To Serve, Venom Prison, Holding Absence and Lotus Eater.

Produced by Loathe’s Erik Bickerstaffe, their forthcoming EP is set to arrive via Venn Records on October 5 and explores both personal and political messages. Guitarist Kyle Holt explained:

"We see people growing more enraged as the world becomes more polarised in the face of numerous man-made threats. We want our music to be a catharsis for anyone who listens, as well as a wake-up call from passively accepting what they’re experiencing. Once you accept that you’ve been handed a set of circumstances that are impossible to overcome, and you realise the expectations society places on you are based on a set of outdated ideals, it is easier to open your eyes to the morally bankrupt side of the human race.

"This sort of subversive attitude ultimately influences how we want to style ourselves. The goal we all have is to craft an image that is in your face, that’s echoed in the lyrics of each track.  No subject is off limits to us and we leave no stone unturned."

Listen to the EP's first single, a two-and-a-half-minute brutal assault on the senses entitled Breeding Filth, below. Dicussing its subject matter, Holt added:

"Breeding Filth was created before the current incarnation of God Complex came to be. It was always intended to be a single, so it made perfect sense to include it on our first EP. The subject matter was largely influenced by a news article on the Assad regime’s chemical weapons attack on a Syrian town called Khan Shaykhun in early 2017. Initially, focused on war atrocities, the track grew into a more encompassing commentary on the dark nature of humanity and how it shapes the world we live in."

Catch the band at London's Upsurge festival later this month and at Venom Fest in Bristol in September, before they hit the road with label mates Rough Hands in October. Tickets are on sale now.
