Napalm Death: premiere new video clip for "Dear Slum Landlord" via NPR Music; North American tour starting soon!
Napalm Death:  premiere new video clip for "Dear Slum Landlord" via NPR Music; North American tour starting soon!
UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH are about to start a massive touring campaign across North America as part of the "Savage Imperial Death March Tour" together with The Melvins and Melt Banana. Therefore, a new video clip for the track "Dear Slum Landlord" off NAPALM DEATH's 15th and much praised current studio album Apex Predator - Easy Meat has been launched now.

This very special clip was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight Media and includes performance footage shot by Oliver Barth / Visions In Fear, and is being premiered today exclusively via NPR Music.

NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway checked in to comment on the video as follows: "Being a very queasy and deliberately monotone kind of song, we felt simplicity was the key with the video for 'Dear Slum Landlord'. Suitably, thanks to two production people in Oliver and Costin - who really understand the contrasting elements of Napalm Death - it's simple, desolate, black and white and just that little bit grim, befitting the subject matter of interconnected housing/labour exploitation which does its best to remain hidden from view."

Here is a list of all upcoming live dates for NAPALM DEATH announced so far (New additions marked *), including several additions (and sold out shows!) to the North American run as well as newly confirmed European dates for the summer:
