THE INFESTED Announce New Album ‘Raw Ensemble’

The InfestedRaw Ensemble is the third full length by The Infested (Leeds, UK) and is due for release later this year.

The band has been on a hiatus for a number of years now (with the exception of a reunion show in 2017), however songwriter and founding member G has continued to write music and release new material.

Raw Ensemble features new songs plus a couple of revamped originals, recorded in a DIY home studio fashion and aims to sound less polished compared to 2013’s Eaten From The Inside. Every instrument and all vocals were performed and mixed by G with some additional vocals added by co-founder Lee, who hasn’t been in the band since 2006.

Lyrically versatile, Raw Ensemble is The Infested’s most personal yet and openly approaches G’s continual battle with social anxiety, mixed with current British sociopolitical themes. Musically, Raw Ensemble is a mixture of fast-paced hardcore ska punk, shouty and occasionally heavy, but not lacking in melody.
