Bodysnatcher Reveal New Album “Bleed-Abide”, Debut “E.D.A.” Music Video


Floridian deathcore outfit Bodysnatcher will have their new full-length album “Bleed-Abide” out on April 22nd through MNRK Heavy. The first single “E.D.A.” arrived online today (February 17th) in conjunction with the album’s announcement and is available below via its official music video. The bulk of the recording sessions for this new opus took place with the band’s drummer Chris Whited taking on the production duties

Speaking of the album itself, the band’s vocalist Kyle Medina offered:

“‘Bleed-Abide‘ is the ultimate culmination of what the band has been building for years, and I believe the best material to date. The instrumentals have matured and become heavier hitting and the lyrics dig deeper personally and more relatable than even ‘This Heavy Void‘. There is something for everyone in this album: slam riffs, breakdowns, two steps, choruses that stick…”

Whited added:

“This album means more to me than any album I have ever been involved in. We all love [last album] ‘This Heavy Void‘, but we weren’t the well-oiled machine that we are now. We know exactly how we all write together and what we are capable of now, and this album fully shows it. Every one of us put hours upon hours into this album throughout the pandemic. Hearing it all come together as one cohesive piece is amazing. I’m so proud of my brothers. This is the album I have always wanted to put out.”

Bassist Kyle Shope also spoke up about the album, stating:

“‘Bleed-Abide‘ really showcases the band’s evolution as a whole and in writing through the past four years. I know each of us is extremely happy with the album’s outcome, and we really can’t wait to perform these songs live. A significant part of the writing process involves hearing the music from a live perspective and trying hard to make sure each track lives up to what we expect from it. Super excited for everyone to listen to these songs!”

As for “E.D.A.“, the band’s guitarist Kyle Carter had the following to share about the inspiration behind it:

“The song is about the feelings I dealt with from my mom’s passing. It talks about how I felt robbed and didn’t even know the real person she was because I was only twelve when she died. It talks about how it feels like her death has defined who I am in so many ways, but I don’t even remember her fully. It’s a tough subject for me even still, and it’s very frustrating and confusing. I feel very strongly about this song, and I hope it helps anyone who might feel a similar way.”
