On August third, ahead of an upcoming free entry show that evening at Leeds Brudenell Social Club, Young Legionnaire announced that the Pledge Music campaign in support of their new album had hit 100%.
A month on and the band have finally revealed release details of their new record Zero Worship, dropping its first single Disappear in the process. A sign of all their hard work and a triumphant return from the trio, the heart-pumping, anthemic new release has become an instant earworm, featuring an incredible vocal performance from front man Paul Mullen.
To coincide with its release, the new video for Disappear chronicles the past two years for Young Legionnaire, taking in their mind-blowing performance at ArcTanGent in 2015, right through the sessions producing Zero Worship. Speaking with The Line Of Best Fit on the striking imagery interspersed throughout, bassist Gordon Moakes explained:
“Interspersed are atmospheric visuals from the industrial setting of Turmwerk studio in Woltersdorf, Germany. The building is an old converted pump station set in the woods of Brandenburg, and we tried to evoke some of the spooky majesty of recording in such austere, wintry surroundings. In relief to the montage of images are snippets of lyrics from the song, which (loosely speaking) are an attempt to refute the crackpot ideologies espoused by Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged.”
Zero Worship, the phenomenal new album from Young Legionnaire, follows on from Crisis Works, their debut LP released in 2011. The new album is out November 25th through Superstar Destroyer Records, with Disappear available now for a pay-what-you-like price through their Bandcamp.
