Perth groove metal act Bayview Suspect are having a fantastic year in 2019 so far, first supporting the legendary Phil Anselmo & The Illegals at this year’s sold out Slayfest in Perth, Australia now are releasing a brand new song titled “Stay Away”. The band will embark on a national tour of Australia in July in support of the release.
The new track “Stay Away” is the first new material from the band since their second EP “Survival Or Ruin” which came out on September 14th 2018 through Rockpit Records and which received rave reviews including from Hysteria Magazine stating “This EP has everything you could want from truly imaginative melodic groove metal–vicious vocals, machine gun drum lines, killer guitar and bass runs that tickle the ears like ants on speed”.
On the new single which is available now on all major digital streaming platforms, the band state that it further showcases the progression and evolution of the band which also includes the debut recording of two of it’s most recent members. ““Stay Away” was an exciting song for us, as it was our first release with the new members. We really wanted to put something out, showing the positive change and direction we are heading with our music. This song has a lot of new elements from all the instruments showing not only our progression as musicians, but as song writers. We believe that we are really starting to find our sound and this song really shows it. The song is about xenophobia and the turmoil between fear and acceptance.”
