HIDE announce new album and share new single + video “Chainsaw”

Chicago duo HIDE are back with news of their new album Hell is Here, set for release August 23rd via Dais Records.

Listen & watch below to the video for the first single “Chainsaw“.

The lyrics to “Chainsaw” aren’t written by the band, rather, they are a slew of verbal assaults they have received repeatedly on the street, often while in the company of a child. The video is a collaboration with film makers Chris Hefner (Chicago) and Menthol Pictures (NYC).

Hell is Here tracklist and artwork:

1. Chainsaw
2. 999
4. Everyone’s Dead
5. Hell
6. Respite
7. 1/2 Trash
8. Grief
9. Pain
10. Raw Dream

HIDE cut their teeth in the DIY spaces of Chicago and have continued touring vigorously since. Last year the band toured Europe, Russia and UK in addition to multiple North American runs. Known for their energetic live performances, the duo also work as interdisciplinary artists together, creating films and visual art installations as well.
