Napalm Death have issued the first single (and lyric video) from their first new album in five years, Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism, which is slated to arrive on September 18 through Century Media Records.

New song "Backlash Just Because" can be streamed here:

Napalm Death vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway comments on the track: "This song in particular really spurred me on when I was writing lyrics for the album overall. It's raucous and traditional, but also quirky and discordant and ultimately catchy-as-anything in the context of rampaging noise. Lyrically it was directed at the spiteful art of creating easy targets and fomenting paranoia and revulsion, which is something that I feel has become de rigueur in very recent times. I really let loose on the more sporadic vocals at the end of the song – it's a real barkfest at that point. Lovely."
