Me And That Man have released a video for their new single titled By The River.

It’s the latest track taken from Behemoth vocalist and guitarist Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski’s side project’s upcoming album New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1, which will be released on March 27 through Napalm Records. 

They previously shared the tracks Męstwo and Surrender.

By The River features a guest appearance from Emperor icon Ihsahn, with Negal explaining: “When the rumours first emerged of me collaborating with Rob Halford and Ihsahn, the idea sparked imagination. 

“I guess people would expect a Nergal and Ihsahn partnership to be extreme, but what came out was a bare bones, blues banger! 

“I’ve got to tell you, it wasn’t an easy sell. At first, Ihsahn didn’t think there was much he could add – luckily, I knew different and I gave him a simple instruction: ‘Have fun.’

“A week later I got the track back and I was totally blown away! Considering the status of the man, he is humble and professional to the core. It was my pleasure to work with him and now it’s our pleasure to present to you By The River.”

Along with Ihsahn, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1 also features Volbeat’s Rob Caggiano, Swedish outfit Dead Soul, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, Trivium’s Matt Heafy and Madrugada’s Siver Høyem.

Me And That Man, along with special guests, will hold a release show at London’s Islington Assembly Rooms on March 27 – just days before their European tour.
