Fans of German metal commandos Primal Fear, listen up. Code Red is almost here. In advance of the record’s official unveiling tomorrow, Friday, September 1 via Atomic Fire, the band offers up a final appetizer with “Cancel Culture”. Accompanied by a captivating lyric video created by Ingo Spörl of Hard Media, the track is themed around a topic that has been heavily discussed in recent years.

Producer/bassist Mat Sinner comments, "There are countries where you just disappear if you speak your mind. These are intolerable conditions. But I'm not backing down. I've always been a rebel; I don't want to conform. And I don't have to play in certain countries either. It's that simple."

Adds frontman Ralf Scheepers, “The way the culture of having discussions with each other has gone down the drain has become unbearable. People tend to have no more respect for each other and that's a dangerous development and perspective. It's the same sad development with all these ‘keyboard warriors’ out there who hide behind a made up user name to release their hate, jealousy, or frustration. I will never take this as a 'Welcome to the Internet’ invitation; it's simply a no go!"
