British experimental metal four-piece Loathe have dropped their stunning new single, “Dimorphous Display”. The single comes as a declaration for the new year, with the band currently working on the follow up to 2020 studio album I Let It In and It Took Everything and 2021’s ambient instrumental record The Things They Believe. In ‘Dimorphous Display’ Loathe find themselves reaching an artistic synthesis, setting themselves up for the most exciting leg of their career so far.

Speaking about the single, Loathe stated, “‘Dimorphous Display’, in its first iteration, had been in the vault for a good few years before we decided to start work on the song together as a band – so finally being able to release it into the world feels like a great accomplishment. The initial demo was filed soon after we had finished up with I Let It In And It Took Everything but with lockdowns occurring across the world, this gave us the opportunity to experiment with different collaborators and thus final tracking was completed sometime in the middle of 2021 at Giant Wafer Studios. We worked alongside our new friend Eddie Al-Shakarchi on capturing the rawest incarnation of the Loathe sound to date and we are very happy with the result.”

Loathe also recently announced that they will be undertaking a huge 23-date US tour in April as support to Code Orange.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
