Swedish metallers Methane have released a new music video and digital single for “Thin the Herd”, via Big Balls Productions.

The video can be viewed below.

The new Methane song shows a much more, agressive side of the band, with a a heavier, more honest thrash metal sound. “Thin the Herd” is a precurser of a new album and direction for Methane’s music.

The cover artwork for “Thin the Herd” was created by Indonesian metal artist Eka Saptura for Pzychoart, who has done work for Suicidal Silence among others. The cover depicts the social commentary of the song blended with gut wrenching colors and post apocalyptic graphics giving it a haunting underground thrash metal feeling.

The lyrical theme of “Thin the Herd” is a reflection of our society’s anti-social /social behavior, and dedicated to all the attention whores, cry babies and catfish dwelling on the internet, echoing a world of Facebook zombies infecting one another by creating mass hýsteria.

In October/November Methane will start a fall tour campaign that will start with a Hometwon release party in Borlänge, Sweden then continue over the Baltic sea to Estonia and Latvia, as a warm for a U.S. West Coast tour with new label mates Incarnit.
Methane has built a reputation as a live band in the underground European metal scene playing with bands such as Nervosa, Warbringer and The Haunted. This is will be the second time the Swedish thrashers have been to the U.S., the first being way back in 2014 when they did an East Coast mini tour that included The Rage of Armageddon Fest in Brooklyn NY. Methane is currently booking more dates in Europe for 2020.
