After taking some time out to recruit a new vocalist and put the finishing touches on their debut full length, British metal 5-piece SHVPES are back with a lyric video for their new single ‘God Warrior’.
Now fronted by Griffin Dickinson, the younger son of Iron Maiden singer Bruce, the band are finally ready to move forward and this new song is our first taster of what SHVPES have up their sleeve. With some punchy lyrics underlined by a fat verse riff and rousing chorus, ‘God Warrior’ seems like the perfect introduction to their new sound.
Griffin says, “We’re finally out of musical hibernation and so excited to start showing the world what SHVPES is really all about. There have been a lot of big changes in our camp over the past year and it’s time to re-lay the foundations. This song’s about the stupidity in following something that’s quite obviously fucking evil. Get ready for what’s coming next.”
SHVPES hit the road as main support on the We Came As Romans and Miss May I co-headline tour at the end of May, with festival performances at either end of those dates. Likely to premiere more new material from their debut album due out later this year, make sure to catch them at one of these shows.
