The track is accompanied by a headtrip of a visual that showcases the duo’s dynamic brand of shock and awe.
The genre-obliterating tandem of Ho99o9 have pulled back the curtain on their plans for domination in 2022.
In the same week that the duo was announced as the first of three on the second leg of Knotfest Roadshow run under legends Slipknot and Cypress Hill, the pair are now furnishing some real firepower with a new track produced by none other than Travis Barker.
Though keeping their cards close to the chest with regards to details on a new album, Ho99o9 have confirmed a new collection of tracks is on the way and have shared “Battery Not Included” as the first showing of the next iteration of the band.
A caustic mesh of programming, punishing percussion and stylized distortion, the track is menacing in its delivery and captivating in its seamless weave of artistic influences. Given the volatility of the single, the band spoke about how the recent social climate has permeated in their sound.
“There’s only but so much mental & physical affliction + oppression the human psyche can [endure] before they reach the pinnacle of no return. I think we’ve all had our moments where we’re fed up, our mind isn’t rational, our eyesight is only seeing red & within that sequence, emotions can get the best of us, if any. The first single is aimed to focus on once past the conscience state of no return anything is liable to happen when pushed past your limits.”
Watch Ho99o9 erupt on “Battery Not Included” below. Tickets for the Knotfest Roadshow featuring Slipknot, Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 go on-sale Friday January 21st.
