Australian death thrashers TRUTH CORRODED have unleashed the bands second song Victims Left Lepers from the bands upcoming new album ‘Bloodlands’, which will be released through Unique Leader Records worldwide on March 22.
The song is accompanied by a confronting video clip that depicts the desperate plight of asylum seekers in offshore detention and targets Australian political figures who engage in racism and fear baiting for political gain.
Bass guitarist and lyricist Greg Shaw offers the following regarding the songs subject matter and video clip: “Victims Left Lepers is a protest against the treatment of asylum seekers in offshore detention and the fear baiting and racist policy pursued by certain politicians for political gain. The clip challenges and ridicules these politicians and provides a historical context and contrast for their deplorable actions to be considered” The video clip was produced by David Hall at Uneasy Sleeper who has worked with acts such as Misery Index, Today Is The Day, The Melvins and KEN Mode.

The song is the second single from the soon to be released album which was mixed by Chris ‘Zeuss’ Harris (Hatebreed, Soulfly, Overkill) and features guest appearances by artists such as Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, Terrance Hobbs of Suffocation, Mark Kloeppel of Misery Index and Ryan Knight (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder)
