Vexed to release second album ‘Negative Energy’ on June 23

U.K alt-metal outfit Vexed will release its second album, “Negative Energy,” on June 23, 2023, via Napalm Records. The record follows Vexed’s debut, “Culling Culture,” released in 2021. The first single and video, “Anti-Fetish,” is available now.

“We wanted to start with a huge riff and a strong message,” the band said. “‘Anti-Fetish’ is us confronting the constant comparisons and ungrounded hate that bands receive. It’s become completely accepted in the scene to cross the line of constructive criticism and just dive bomb into hatred and prejudice. This song is us setting the record straight by calling out the blatant discrimination.”

“We are so proud to present to you our second album,” the band said. “Since our first release, we have each endured traumatic experiences, surrounded by death, betrayal, pain and grief. In order to find any strength, we first had to accept that we weren’t okay, then take our trauma and face it head on, sharing our vulnerability, fears and weaknesses. Instead of forcing ourselves to try and be positive we put all our negative energy into the album in order to begin our own repair and to overcome.”
