INCOMING!... New Killatrix track ‘Subterranean’ is OUT NOW on Spotify > bit.ly/killatrix-spotify‘Subterranean’ is OUT NOW on Spotify > bit.ly/killatrix-spotify

“There are good guys & bad guys in every conflict, and we can be served a narrative that often unravels while it's being reported." - Maybe now more potent than ever.

This is the opening track of our upcoming EP 'Future Weapons'. It’s something new and it means so much to us to finally get it out.

"Innocence can easily be flattened by the might that’s been ordered by those who are supposed to be our protectors.

Outcomes can appear very different when you are sitting in the backseat safe and secure.”

Listen to 'Subterranean' on Spotify now, and follow us at the link below to make sure you don't miss the next releases. >
