Description

“The fear of death is enough to make you want to live.”

New Zealand's legendary Stoner Metal band Beastwars are returning to the world with a new lease on life, literally. Vocalist Matt
Hyde underwent over 6 months of treatment for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2016, he is now in remission. They are today announcing their new album “IV” which was shaped by Hyde’s recent experiences. It will be released on Friday June 28 through Destroy Records.

Along with the announcement of the new album, the band have come roaring back from a three year hiatus with new single “Omens”.

Vocalist Matt Hyde said that through his diagnosis and subsequent treatment, he was given an opportunity to look into the abyss
beyond life as we know it. “Throughout the treatment – I was numb – and it's interesting to have the ability to confront that, to confront the void, to confront the idea of mortality. I didn't make peace with it either.”

That experience – the loneliness and isolation of the long treatment time – gave Hyde plenty to consider. Life, friendships and relationships in his 40's, his then-10-year-old daughter and his band and experiences. What resulted was a record that leaves nothing
unsaid. A howling, raw and powerful voice. Hyde says, “I was lucky that I had music to express what had happened to me – a lot of people don't have that. I was very lucky that we could make a record. I took the time to process it and turned it into something
else.”

To celebrate the album release Beastwars are touring New Zealand and Australia in June/July – presented by Panhead Custom Ales.
They are hitting Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin in New Zealand and then jumping over the Tasman to play Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne shows. All shows minus Christchurch, Dunedin and Brisbane will feature Australia's Wit­chskull.

Beastwars formed in Wellington in 2006. Their 2011 self-titled debut was nominated for Best New Zealand Rock Album at the New
Zealand Music Awards, as were their second and third albums 2014's Blood Becomes Fire and 2016's The Death Of All Things. Beastwars and Blood Becomes Fire were also nominated for the Taite Music Prize.
