Destruction release Under Attack video


Destruction have released the video for their track Under Attack.

The song is taken from the band’s upcoming record of the same name, due out on May 13 via Nuclear Blast. It can pre-ordered on the label’s webstore.

Destruction bassist Marcel Schmier says: “We really took our time for this album. After the summer festivals, we went into the studio every couple of weeks to record brand new songs and ideas in between all the touring activities.

“We took several studio sessions instead of one long one, to keep the ideas fresh and have time later before the mix to change bits and pieces that we did not like. Maybe this was the most effective writing we did in the last years.

“Due to the fact we had more time in between the albums, there was a lot of musical output and creativity, but also less pressure. From my point of view, you can definitely hear the crispiness in the songwriting and the kick-ass attitude we brought from the shows into the studio.”

Destruction have scheduled a run of shows in South America and Europe throughout the coming months.
