One of the UK’s most exciting new talents – the alt-metal outfit VEXED – will release their hotly-anticipated new record Negative Energy on 23rd June via Napalm Records.

Bursting onto the scene with their highly-lauded 2021 debut, the crushing Hertfordshire trio depicts the violence they’ve gathered since their first release. A soundtrack of brutality – chaotic, traumatic and based on the band’s most gruelling personal experiences.

The huge new track fearless breaks in with an all-consuming, panic-stricken lead riff, making a stand against lazy comparisons, and hate in the music business. Blistering with disorderly intensity, VEXED don’t mince words with pure honesty and all-consuming instrumental strength.

The band comment on the new single: “We wanted to start with a huge riff and a strong message. ‘Anti-Fetish’ is us confronting the constant comparisons and ungrounded hate that bands receive. It’s become completely accepted in the scene to cross the line of constructive criticism and just dive bomb into hatred and prejudice. This song is us setting the record straight by calling out the blatant discrimination.”

Negative Energy
is the pinnacle of VEXED‘s musicianship, with gripping, profound and brave lyricism. Instead of opting for the forced positivity many of their contemporaries demonstrate, the Hertfordshire trio channel every ounce of their Negative Energy into these 13 tracks – recharging themselves for an uphill battle.

The band comment: “We are so proud to present to you our second album. Since our first release, we have each endured traumatic experiences, surrounded by death, betrayal, pain and grief. In order to find any strength, we first had to accept that we weren’t okay, then take our trauma and face it head on, sharing our vulnerability, fears and weaknesses. Instead of forcing ourselves to try and be positive we put all our negative energy into the album in order to begin our own repair and to overcome.”
