Deathcore is in the midst of a comeback, which makes it a great time to get a killer new song from Bodysnatcher, who proudly fly the genre's flag. "Deathcore kicks ass," says vocalist Kyle Medina. "A lot of bands shy away from labels they don’t deem ‘cool’ enough. But we don’t give a fuck. We like what we like, and we play what we play. We all love hardcore and metal, so we’re going to play hardcore, play metal, and play breakdowns. And that’s how the band is going to be, forever."

The new song is called "E.D.A." and it's off the band's upcoming album Bleed-Abide, which is due April 22 via MNRK Heavy (pre-order). It starts out as a chaotic song that's nearly in mathcore territory, before going full deathcore around the two-minute mark. It's the album's second single, following the brick-heavy "Absolved of The Strings And Stone" from back in October, and that one's pretty great too. Watch the videos for both below.

"The song is about the feelings I dealt with from my mom's passing," said guitarist Kyle Carter of "E.D.A." via press release. "It talks about how I felt robbed and didn’t even know the real person she was because I was only twelve when she died. It talks about how it feels like her death has defined who I am in so many ways, but I don’t even remember her fully. It’s a tough subject for me even still, and it’s very frustrating and confusing. I feel very strongly about this song, and I hope it helps anyone who might feel a similar way."

About the album overall, Kyle Medina says, "Bleed-Abide is the ultimate culmination of what the band has been building for years, and I believe the best material to date. The instrumentals have matured and become heavier hitting and the lyrics dig deeper personally and more relatable than even This Heavy Void. There is something for everyone in this album: slam riffs, breakdowns, two steps, choruses that stick…" Drummer Chris Whited adds, "This is the album I have always wanted to put out."
