Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison‘s new band are heating things up with their first single ‘Blood Host.’ The new tune will be on their self-titled debut release, due out on Oct 1 on Roadrunner Records.

‘Blood Host’ made its premiere on Revolver, check out the song here. “It’s very coincidental that ‘Blood Host’ is our first track and video because it was the first song I wrote for this project when it was nothing but a mere idea at best,” Jordison told Revolver. “Songs, of course, followed, and molded into an overall feel, concept, and now a full-length album.”

Jordison also talked about the track in detail, explaining, “‘Blood Host’ has it all: hypnotic riffs, soaring choruses, pummeling breakdowns, and the lyrics are infectious in every sense.” He continued, “ We are very proud of the track and it pretty much lets you know where we are coming from, musically, and what we are all about live. Scar the Martyr, up close and personal.”

Speaking of live, Scar the Martyr’s plans for the future include an upcoming tour with Danzig and Huntress that kicks off later this month. Click below to see all the dates and tour stops:
