Botch releases first single in 20 years, share music video

Latest track is avaliable on the We Are The Romans reissue due out 11/4

Botch

We posted a few weeks ago that Botch might be teasing something and today we know what that was. Today the band released their first new single in 20 years with "One Twenty Two" along with a Dimitri Luedemann-directed video. The track is part of the We Are The Romans re-issue coming out November 4th through Sargent House.

Guitarist David Knudson on why Botch decided to release a new single:

During Covid, I was writing my debut solo LP, and mentally, I was sick of everything in quarantine. Lots of frustration had set in at home, and I figured the best way to deal with it was to write something heavy.

I had no intention of writing anything for Botch, but when I was thinking of a singer to collaborate with, I thought, 'Hey, I know the best hardcore singer ever to do it,' so I hit up Dave V. He was super excited and so it just kind of snowballed from there. There was never any intent or conversation about getting back together or writing. It just happened so naturally and was a great release for all of us to make it happen without any of the traditional pressure an 'active' band faces.

Deal with it by getting your 7th booster shot and wearing a mask when you are on the toilet. I saw some f*cking idiot riding his bicycle outside with a N95 mask on yesterday. I hope he rode his bike off a cliff.

anonymous 8/24/2022 7:52:47 AM

'nobody wants to hear from botch' We sure do! Just not from you thanks! 👍😎

anonymous 8/24/2022 7:55:21 AM

Is this supposed to be good news? Is this supposed to be good music?

anonymous 8/24/2022 8:01:02 AM

Narrows > Botch

I'm surprised Home Depot has given these guys that much time off

"Deal with it by getting your 7th booster shot and wearing a mask when you are on the toilet. I saw some f*cking idiot riding his bicycle outside with a N95 mask on yesterday. I hope he rode his bike off a cliff." hahaha "I saw something I didn't like, so I hope the person dies." God damn you need help. Caring about the behavior others to the point of wanting them dead is as liberal as it gets.

This is what all these posers here on LG have been jizzing over for years? Wow, this is pure shit poser garbage.

VodkaVeins 8/24/2022 8:46:13 AM

You never heard Botch until now? lol. Anons are pussies...

anonymous 8/24/2022 8:47:08 AM

Botch is better than 99% bands posted on here. About time

anonymous 8/24/2022 8:49:11 AM

They would have been better off not releasing anything.

anonymous 8/24/2022 8:50:15 AM

VodkaVeins 2 minutes ago You never heard Botch until now? lol. Anons are pussies... You wouldn't dare say that to my face.

anonymous 8/24/2022 9:07:08 AM

I can't imagine anyone over 15 impressed with this music. Shit is for dorks.

anonymous 8/24/2022 9:14:31 AM

We Came as Romans > Botch ^^^^^ fake news

anonymous 8/24/2022 9:15:09 AM

When I went to see Botch in '99, deathcore wasn't a thing yet. They basically invented it. Suicide Silence and Chelsea grin should be paying Botch royalties on all their releases. Also Converge ripped off Botch and Coalesce and some model from France. And I bet Korn listened to early Botch as well and based their sound on it at least partially.

Bad comments.

anonymous 8/24/2022 10:14:55 AM

the red chord and despised icon were never influenced by botch. also disembodied >

anonymous 8/24/2022 10:15:11 AM

GOAT status

anonymous 8/24/2022 10:42:14 AM

safe to say they botched this whole reunion

easyhateoven 8/24/2022 10:51:05 AM

love it!

anonymous 8/24/2022 10:59:47 AM

Botch and Coalesce are the best in this genre. Hands down

anonymous 8/24/2022 11:16:46 AM

^ early sepultura beat them both to it.

anonymous 8/24/2022 11:55:01 AM

i just wanna hear em play rock lobster

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:12:28 PM

I know this might sound outrageous to you people, but Botch is more important than every single person on this site, and the site itself.

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:13:23 PM

Botch? More like bitch

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:18:17 PM

Botch is more important than every single person on this site, and the site itself. A bar so low that an earthworm could limbo under it

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:22:30 PM

Botch was always good at best back in the day. We Are The Romans is good for a re listen on a rare occasion but it's really not that great of an album. Talented dudes, just gets boring after a couple songs

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:45:54 PM

I can't imagine anyone over 15 impressed with this music. Shit is for dorks. This comment pretty much sums up Botch's music and pull within the scene, but also sheds light on shitty 2000s metalcore as a whole. Those same 15 yo dorks are now in their 40s and are over weight alcoholics. I couldn't imagine listening to something so incredibly shitty...

anonymous 8/24/2022 12:48:20 PM

Band rules. Comment section is full of dudes who go to shows and stand in the back texting the whole time. Just finish your normie FOX News conversion and start shopping at Bass Pro Shop already.

I just crowdkilled my 15 year old song listening to this

"Deal with it by getting your 7th booster shot and wearing a mask when you are on the toilet. I saw some f*cking idiot riding his bicycle outside with a N95 mask on yesterday. I hope he rode his bike off a cliff." Conservatives are still so intensely mad at a 3 square inch piece of paper. Haha

anonymous 8/24/2022 3:02:06 PM

I only laughed at like 3 of these comments.

anonymous 8/24/2022 4:03:36 PM

f*ckin guy in this statement is so self righteous. Motherf*cker is acting like he's the Dumbledore of mathcore. It's pretty straightforward dude- people care more about what you did 20 years ago in Botch than everything you've done since. Get off this high and mighty bullshit about moving forward and do the only thing you will be remembered for- writing music for botch

anonymous 8/24/2022 4:04:56 PM

anonymous 8/24/2022 7:46:46 PM

Botch rips. New song slaps.

anonymous 8/24/2022 11:08:29 PM

Wow this shit is weak. Mediocre rock riffs over shouting and some people go apeshit lolll
