Following on from the release of their much-loved LP 'War Music' last year, Refused are back to announce the details of a brand new EP, expected to land next month.
The new five-track collection 'The Malignant Fire' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Born On The Outs', which sees them cover a sample of Swedish House Mafia's 'Greyhound', and will be available from the 20th November.
Speaking about the new EP, the band's Dennis Lyxzen said, "There are certain traditions within the Refused camp and one of the sturdiest is the idea that after every album there comes an EP. This time however I think that we outdid ourselves. Malfire is my favorite song of the record so it's more than fitting that we shine some extra light on that. This EP was supposed to be something that was released before a tour but in these weird times that tour never happened. However, this still a great EP that follows a great record. More than ever, we need music to lead the way when things are the darkest. Here's a little attempt from us."
While adding about the new single, "Kris has talked about the riff in the Swedish House Mafia song ‘Greyhound’ forever, so we decided to give it our own spin. David and I added some lyrics for this version, which we've called ‘Born On The Outs’. Make no mistake though; this is very much ‘Greyhound’, but with added lyrics about people who refused to take a side in the ongoing fight against fascism. So, you know, another ordinary Refused song.”
