News: Bodysnatcher Unveil Video for New Single ‘Dead Rabbit’

Florida deathcore practitioners Bodysnatcher unveiled a video for their new, stand-alone single, “Dead Rabbit.” The emotional bruiser is a tribute to drummer Chris Whited’s late brother and former bandmate, Adam.

Of the new song, Whited elaborates: “This song was written as a message to my brother, Adam, who died last April. Adam got me into hardcore and playing music when we were younger. He started, and played in, our old band King Conquer and was a massive part in the South Florida metal and hardcore scene. Adam was diagnosed with a severe case of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) when he was only 16 years old. He fought through it for years, continuing to tour through the pain, loss of sight, numbness of limbs, and brain lesions until he physically couldn’t do it anymore.”

Bodysnatcher have a massive tour schedule ahead of them that begins on March 1. The band will be playing alongside AngelMaker, Paleface, Distant, Lorna Shore, Shadow Of Intent, Brand Of Sacrifice, and Boundaries, across multiple tours—See dates below.

Bodysnatcher’s latest full-length, Bleed-Abide, was released last year on MNRK Heavy. Recorded by the band’s Chris Whited at 1776 Recordings with drums engineered by Neil Westfall and Bud Phillips at The Unicorn Room, and guitars re-amped by Phil Pluskota at Sonic Assault Studio. The record is callously grim, ferocious, and threatening, crackling beneath the weight of its own fury and power.
