Crippled Black Phoenix, frontet av Justin Greaves fra Electric Wizard, legger i november ut på turné, og 16 desember legger de turen innom John Dee! I denne anledning slipper de en ny EP, titulert New Dark Age Tour EP 2015 A.D., og vi kan her presentere første smakebit fra denne, i form av låta Spider Island!
Greaves har selv følgende å si om det kommende slippet: «Our ‘New Dark Age Tour EP’ represents a new chapter in the CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX history. I feel like it is time to be truly free of industry and personal bullshit. It also connects what we have gone through as a band with what is going on in the big wide world. It really feels as if we are living in a new ‘dark age’. Religious and political oppression, the population being fed constant untruths – all of this reminds of the priests in the middle ages telling folk about dog-headed monsters living in the woods, but if you repent and join the church, they will protect you. The song ‘Spider Island’ is more personal. There I mentally put all the bad people… recently there have been a few people, who need to go to Spider Island and live a life of torture along with all the other scumbags, who cling to power in the world.»
