Annihilator have premiered the video for their lead single For The Demented exclusively with Metal Hammer.

The song is taken from the band’s new album of the same name, which was released on November 3 via Neverland Music/Silver Lining Music.

Frontman Jeff Waters says of the track: “This song is for anyone who feels out of place in the world. Whether that feeling comes from other people’s comments and looks about their clothing, hair or musical choices, all the way to people with depression and even more serious mental illnesses.”

“Many of the world’s most important people have been out of society’s ‘norm’ and have used their challenges to their advantage to become important to someone or to society.”

Annihilator will be joining Testament on tour across Europe on November 12. Find a full list of tour dates below, along with the For The Demented tracklist and video.
