Anti-Clone unleash ‘Astaroth’ and support Mushroomhead

Boston’s apocalyptic nu-metal madmen, Anti-Clone have infected their world of destruction with new song ‘Astaroth’ available to stream online now. As if it was not enough to attack the world online, they also released the news of support for some of nu-metals flag bearers, Mushroomhead.

Astaroth‘ comes from Anti-Clones debut album release, ‘The Root Of Man’, which proved a Pledge Music Campaign success. Wasting little time since their arrival in this World from 2013, they have spread their noise wide and far throughout the stages of the UK and Europe, leaving no venue unscathed.

Fronting the band, Mr. Clone spoke out about the meaning behind ‘The Root Of Man’: “‘The Root of Man’ is intended to hold a dual meaning. Firstly, it questions the beginning of the human race, starting with Eve committing original sin which resulted in us being cast out of Eden. This is echoed in the title track with the lyrics: “The root of man is evil; the root of man is sin”. This theme is explored further throughout the album, looking at the extremes of human emotion and actions. The second meaning is that ‘The Root Of Man’ symbolises our beginning as a band. These are the roots that we are planting to fully establish ourselves as our own entity, to establish ourselves as Anti-Clone.”

Anti-Clone are set to grace the stage with Mushroomhead and Sanguine on the following dates:

24th March – BIRMINGHAM – O2 Academy Birmingham

25th March – CHESTER – The Live Rooms

Despite being around for as little as 3 years, and this being their debut album, they have turned big heads and acquired the talents of rock and metal royalty along the journey to create the release. Produced by none other than Matt Hyde (Slipknot, Machine Head), and art by Mister Sam (Rob Zombie). Aside from the all-star team behind the albums creation, Anti-Clone have earned fans of big names through their tour support slots alone, Benji Webbe of Skindred spoke of their time sharing the stage: “Anti-Clone have the full package! After having them support Skindred for 2 weeks, I saw them deliver an amazing performance night after night. I believe with the right direction they could be a ruling force in British metal!”

Along side the recent two shows announced as Mushroomhead support, the band are working away at tour dates and new music videos to unleash on the World, 2016 is set to be a big one for destruction.

The debut album ‘The Root Of Man’ is set for release April 29th via Plastic Head Distribution.
