SKYND have unveiled a brand-new single, Robert Hansen. The dark new tune kicks off the duo’s Chapter V era, with vocalist Skynd explaining: “I was surprised not many people talk about Robert Hansen, the ‘Butcher Baker’. I personally consider him one of the most evil serial killers in American history. He not only had a high-victim count, he literally hunted his victims in the woods like wild animals sometimes. I can’t think of any other serial killer who’s done that to the extent that Hansen did. That’s why I had an urge to write about it. The hunting, the run, run, run seemed logical to use because the mental image I had while writing the song with [SKYND producer and multi-instrumentalist] Father, was a young girl running barefoot though the forest.” The track comes accompanied by a PR Brown-directed music video, who shares that, “Robert Hansen was a particularly twisted monster. For the video we explored an uncomfortable space through the lens of watching a baker at work. His violence was too brutal to show or frankly glorify, so we expressed through yeast and powder. We filmed the forest while it was snowing and it was not lost on any of us just how cold his victims must have been. Alaska must have been a thousand times worse, surviving only on adrenaline as the women were set loose like game. Skynd delivered a haunting portrayal as the voice in their head. This video and the whole process stands out to me as one of the more difficult to shoot but maybe one of the most rewarding in terms of the finished piece. Run, run, run.” [via Kerrang]

Kontrust on ‘i physically like you’: “Riggiding – uncontrollable energy!” The first single taken from the new album madworld embodies the perfect fusion of Kontrust trademarks and crazy fresh vibes.
