Napalm Death unveil Dear Slum Landlord

Napalm Death have released a video for Dear Slum Landlord.

The song is taken from their 15th full-length Apex Predator – Easy Meat, which was released in January.

Vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenaway says: “Being a very queasy and deliberately monotone kind of song, we felt simplicity was the key with the video for Dear Slum Landlord.

“Suitably, thanks to two production people in Oliver and Costin — who really understand the contrasting elements of Napalm Death — it’s simple, desolate, black and white and just that little bit grim, befitting the subject matter of interconnected housing/labour exploitation which does its best to remain hidden from view.”

Napalm Death recently issued a live video performance of How The Years Condemn, taken from the grindcore documentary Slave To The Grind.

They’ll also tour North America with The Melvins later this month.
