He Is Legend "Something Witchy" song premiere

1/31/2014 10:50:00 AM

North Carolina rockers He Is Legend unveil their first new track in nearly five years.
He Is Legend premiere

It's been a long time since you've heard new music from Wilmington, North Carolina band He Is Legend. Shortly after releasing their third full-length, It Hates You, in July 2009, the band went on a hiatus that lasted more than two years. Regrouping to play sporadic shows in late-2011, He Is Legend eventually began putting the pieces together for a new album. But it's been slow going, and fans have waited patiently (or impatiently) for some new material from the band.

Now, nearly five years since the release of their last album, He Is Legend is ready to let everybody hear some of the stuff they've been working on. Today, we are thrilled (stoked, even) to premiere the band's brand new single "Something Witchy" below. The track will ultimately appear on the band's next Tragic Hero Records release. Listen to the song now, then buy it online. And when you're done with that, hop on the band's Facebook and tell em how much you dig it.

It's catchy, but it's less He Is Legend and more radio rock.

Schuylar sounds like a girl at the beginning.

this band is like a breath of fresh air in a stagnant industry.
i wish music this creative and passionate would become a normal thing again.
HIL is seriously one of the best bands on the planet and I'm SO happy they're still at it - can't wait for the new album.

Don't post your anonymous comments with your negativity.

This song is absolutely thrilling. I got chills down my spine at the intro.

This band is absolutely incredible. New album is gonna be amazing. I'm loving this.

He Is Legend could record the sound of elephants shitting and I would still worship every note. They always release a little more bland song as a teaser it seems.
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 1:40:41 PM
they played this live when I saw them a few months back. bad ass band. come back to Illinois soon.

I love the "Something Witchy." I love the overall feel of the song and that chorus is very catchy! So glad to hear a new song from you guys. I am a huge and long-time fan here. I can't wait for the album to drop!

HE is Legend until death LOVE THESE GUYS AND STOKED FOR TH RECORD!!! that is all

What a disappointment. So Radio-rock...
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 6:13:51 PM
i really don't like their new sound...too mainstream, they need to go back to the jazz/blues metal and more melodic voice stuff they used to be, that was REAL He Is Legend...now they just sound like another sell-out band...sadly, dissapointed...
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 6:15:42 PM
schuylar, I love how you record the vocals on your songs, but PLEASE!!! practice more your vocals and stop smoking and drinking whisky! that can be seen when you play live and it sucks sometimes just because for the vocals :( It's just a comment from a Chilean He Is Legend FAN, who loves your music since 2004! I would like to see you playing live in my country and it's nice to know that you'll release a new album!!! This made my day!! cheers!! |m|
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 6:25:44 PM
Come on, name one song on the radio that this compares to.
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 7:55:22 PM
one of my favourite bands!! so pumped on this release!
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 8:07:57 PM
yeah they should have stayed broken up

chorus kinda has a cky vibe
anonymous   posted 1/31/2014 9:38:29 PM
This is classic He Is Legend badass awesomeness. If you don't like it, get the f*ck off this web site and stop wasting your time commenting about it. I for one am stoked as hell for the new album!!!

I gots me a poster & shirt. Dem arts is nice. I'll wait for the full album to buy the media, though.

I stay pretty loyal to you guys, before Schuylars beard, and before it was its own entity. You brought life to the midwest when you decided not to follow the trend of swoop haired girl jean hxc music that had plagied me for most of my adolescence, and I thank/praise you for that.
You keep making music the way you want to, and well, it'll grow on me as it has since suck out the poison.
I do however hope this is the popiest song on the album.
Long live HIL

Good to hear you guys! Sounds Awesome!

I bet the people saying this is "radio rock" don't even understand the underlying stories HIL continue on every cd and how each story is progressing.
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 8:15:16 AM
I'm so stoked to hear new He is Legend
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 8:24:20 AM
Sounds like STP… And I like that. Good one boys!

I am in love with this band's music. Never have they released something that didn't give me absolute CHILLS! Great job, boys! You never cease to make Wilmy proud of you.
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 8:52:35 AM
I love HIL. New track is really good, especially if you've learned to set aside wishing for an "old" HIL sound. Having said that there's no way all these positive LG comments are real lol
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 9:40:33 AM
something tells me most of these comments were made by band members
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 9:48:46 AM
It's Bibis Ellison at beginning.

Rocks Songs doesn't mean aggressive or more heavy but the way you feel! I feel "Something Witchy" :) LOVE U YOU GUYS HIL

What f*cking "radio" are these people listening to? This song, band and vision are incredible.
anonymous   posted 2/1/2014 12:11:29 PM
I would love to know what radio station all of the radio complainers are listening to. I've never heard ANYTHING like this on alternative radio stations.

Morons just want screams and breakdowns. This isnt 2005 anymore. Like thrice, BMTH, Beartooth, ect.... Musicians mature with their taste as they become adults. As should you.....

accessible =/= radio rock
anonymous   posted 2/2/2014 8:23:36 AM
This song kicks ass! Great extension from the last album. Can't wait to hear the rest!

Also... I am VERY doubtful that I will ever hear this on the radio LOL.
anonymous   posted 2/2/2014 10:09:53 AM
Accesable radio rock? Get real man. This band is probably the most talented and underrated band I've ever heard. Tell me what other music you can listen to for hours on end and never get tired of? Now if you guys want to hear "radio rock" then go listen to maylene and the sons of disasters last album. He is Legend has been making the best and most consistent music since 91025, and even before they were He is Legend. you're obviesly not a true He is Legend fan.
anonymous   posted 2/2/2014 6:25:30 PM
Radio rock, its he is legend are you a fan, no a believer of the bunch? If they could sound this good sounding like ehh its ok the album may be as good as it hates you which it does, expand man try to ...understand

They sampled a muse song

the dude who said the singer sounded like a girl at the beginning is a retard. its obviously the girl who does the vocals of (((louds

Love the Legend since they were Uriah Omen, but I gotta' say, ETID has progressed better and grown Southern Metal more than any band in the past 10 years. Kinda like the new HIL song. But I felt that way about It Hates You when the first couple of songs leaked. Then after listening to the album, it grew on me. Can't wait to hear the new album.
anonymous   posted 2/5/2014 4:09:53 PM
I dig it - need a few more listens. Was going to buy a shirt until I was checking out and it's $10.00 shipping for something that costs $4 tops to mail. C'mon guys. You're losing sales upcharging shipping like that.

I still have my original Uriah Omen cd... Can't wait for the new one to be released!

Anyone negatively dubbing this song "radio rock" can eat a big ol' d*ck.

Chelsea Dove is the girl who does all the female vocal tracks. Like in the song (((louds on suck out the poison. her voice is awesome!

I thought this was the new He Is Legend song, not the new MUSE single.
anonymous   posted 3/27/2014 8:07:29 PM
I loved Suck Out The Poison, so this sounds like it'll freakin rock. I think the Hollywood days are gone, but with a sound like this I'm ok with that
