Refused have released the official video for their new track “Dawkins Christ”, which will appear on the group’s highly-anticipated new record, Freedom. The thrashing anthem is set to a collection of old film clips and scenes of a religious nature. The band issued the following comments regarding the track:
The title [Dawkins Christ] refers to the famous biologist whose atheist theology has inspired a semi-cult who in turn sees him as a messianic figure, an irony that partly inspired the lyrics. The music draws from the film scores of Hans Zimmer and Ennio Morricone as well as pre-Reign in blood Slayer.
Check out the video after the break.
Freedom will be released on June 29 via Epitaph Records.
