Northlane Announce NEW Album “Alien” Out August 2nd | Video Out Now “Bloodline” | US Tour 2019

Northlane new album alien

From Sydney Australia, Northlane have announced the upcoming release of their fifth full length album “Alien” that comes out on August 2nd with UNFD.

‘Bloodline’ sheds light to a very personal story and from the beginning it starts off very strong and continues to build into a fury! You can truly feel the passion, the hurt and the aggression in every verse of this song. “‘Bloodline’ was one of the first songs that came about in the writing process for the album. When we were trying to decide what we wanted to write about, we decided early on that we wanted to keep the album pretty personal. I wanted to tell the stories of my upbringing and the ups and downs that come along with that,” says Marcus Bridge.

I was raised in hell but I made it out, raised in a place I shouldn’t have been, and no child should have been. But I’ve been able to break free.”

While some long-time listeners might assume that the title Alien is a continuation of the space and futuristic themes that have characterized previous Northlane albums, it’s instead a reflection of the alienation Bridge felt as a child “who grew up in a weird, unusual household and who was bullied at school because of it.” This album for me, is a journey of overcoming your troubles and an inspiration for anyone that is in a difficult situation. There is a way out!

“Details Matter”
“Talking Heads”

Check below for the ‘Bloodline’ Video and continue down for the lyrics…

I can’t escape you
No matter how far I run (can’t escape you)
I can’t erase you
From who I’ve become (you’re a part of me)

Memories coursing through my veins
Like the scars in yours, my roots remain

I was raised in hell
I made it out by myself
I was raised to bleed
Bad blood runs wild and free

I thought you were dreaming
Eyes rolled to the stars
Sinking slowly in muddy water
Set beneath the tar
You left me in dark

We grew up scared
Bruised and battered
Youth torn and tattered
As long as you were sky high
Nothing fucking mattered
Hotel homes in the cross
Under the bridge and lost
With your heads in the clouds above

You call this love

I was raised in hell
I made it out by myself
I was raised to bleed
Bad blood runs wild and free

I thought you were dreaming (hell raised me)
I thought you were dreaming
Bad blood runs wild and free
