JROCK NEWS was first to report when Crossfaith teased a new EP through our interview last month. Now, the band has officially introduced the release which is called SPECIES, a heavy work bringing five tracks to the world on May 22.

Along with the news, the music video Digital Parasite was made public which is extracted from the upcoming work. This song follows suit with the psychedelic, acid theme that we have previously seen with Crossfaith’s latest single Endorfine, also present in the EP SPECIES.

Take a comfortable seat as we infect ourselves into a state of trance with Digital Parasite.

During our interview, vocalist Kenta was very excited when hinting that there would be a very special guest involved which we now know is the rebellious Japanese rapper Jin Dogg, featured in the fourth track None Of Your Business.

Jin Dogg’s work is in general very aggressive and holds a dismissive and cocky tone, so it will be interesting to see how his vocals will be incorporated into Crossfaith’s metal sound.

We have a guest vocalist for one of the songs in the EP, you might be surprised by who it is. Previously we’ve collaborated with many artists like Benji from Skindred, Caleb from Beartooth, and Rou Reynolds from Enter Shikari. These artists are from the rock music scene, but in our new release, we collaborated with someone from a different music scene…

With the new upcoming EP, it’s similar to how we approached XENO or Zion. We just wanted to create stronger songs so I cannot wait to share the new music from the upcoming EP with you all.

Get the EP on May 22 in regular or limited edition!
