Venomous Concept, the hardcore punk supergroup created by Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Brujeria, etc.) and ex-Brutal Truth frontman Kevin Sharp (Lock Up), have premiered their new track “Fractured“. It’s the third single to surface from the group’s forthcoming new album “The Good Ship Lollipop“, which will be out on February 24th. Andy Lefton directed the below music video for the song, which finds Embury on lead vocals.

He had the following to say about that:

“I was sitting outside the recording studio in Cambridge on a summer’s day thinking about this song, lyrically and vocally. We were a few months into the pandemic and Kevin had gotten into the U.K. to record his vocals for the Venomous Concept album, which was a relief! I sat there wondering what was happening in our world. Fiction seemed to have merged with reality where we all experienced so much stress, so much anxiety. I am not special—the pandemic affected us all in ways we don’t yet realize.

Music was always my comfort, but during this time my family needed me to be strong and I really wasn’t. I was breaking apart and trying to figure out how to put myself back together, and hopefully leave some of the bad bits behind.

Memories came—my childhood, my parents, my family, my children, my friends. Then the words to ‘Fractured’ came… I am still piecing myself back together, trying to be just good enough.”

Guitarist John Cooke (Napalm Death) and drummer Carl Stokes (Cancer) complete the group’s current lineup.
