Anti-Clone Debuts Chilling Music Video
Ahead Of New ‘Human’ EP
self release
27 July 2022

“Human – An anthem rooted in the horror of what it means to be human. Its intention is to hold a mirror to humanity (or lack of) and explore just how far we’ve fallen in the sense that we fetishise war, and that we hold guns and gods above basic human rights, decency and life. Every time you turn on the TV, or read the news,  you are greeted by the same bleak reality be it the war in Ukraine, or the most recent school shootings in the United States. Human is a case study into the psyche of the human race and how we can learn to be better” – CLΩNE

Originally formed in 2011, Anti-Clone have come a long way since the Axe and Cleaver in Boston in the UK.

The nu-metal/industrial juggernaut released their debut EP ‘Hands Sewn Together’ in 2014 to critical acclaim, garnering reviews in magazines such as Big Cheese and Terrorizer.

Produced by Matt Hyde (Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Machine Head), his wealth of experience with some the world’s best known metal bands was invaluable in shaping fledgeling band’s sound.

On the back of this release they went on a full European tour with Ragga metal titans Skindred, exciting audiences from France to Poland and everywhere in between.

Anti-Clone followed up 2014’s ‘Hands Sewn Together’ with 2016’s ‘The Root of Man’, again produced by Hyde. The general reception of the album was fantastic, with a 4K review from Kerrang! and a 7/10 from Metal Hammer, among many, many more.

The success of this album saw Anti-Clone joining such acts as Mushroomhead, Hacktivist, Bleed From Within and Dope, as well as playing at the 2016 edition of Bloodstock festival, 2017’s inaugural HRH Metal, Amplified Festival and a headline slot at one of the stages at MacMillanfest.

2017 also saw the band embark on their debut headline, exciting audiences all over the UK.

Major line-up changes saw the band undergo a period of hibernation from 2018 onwards. However, Anti-Clone are very much back in the saddle now with 2022’s comeback release ‘Human’.

Produced by David Radahd-Jones at RED Studios in Manchester, his attention to detail led to the honing and refining of what the band wanted to accomplish in this new phase of its existence.

This release sees the band explore a new more melodic sound, while retaining the cutting edge that established them in the first place. Get ready to experience the new Anti-Clone, and the new world order.
