The roots of hardcore supergroup Bloodclot began in late September 2015 when Cro-Mags vocalist John Joseph reconnected with former Murphy's Law guitarist Todd Youth. "We've always talked about doing this record together," Joseph said. "Todd had songs written and I had notebooks full of lyrics. I went out to L.A. to do a triathlon and injured my calf muscle, so I couldn't race, and Todd said he couldget some studio time. So, we went in and cut the demo. While there are things we may perceive as a negative in our lives, in fact the universe has a bigger plan, and that experience ultimately resulted in the record." Soon after they brought in their friends that had been playing in Queens of the Stone Age, Joey Castillo and Nick Oliveri, to the lineup.

"We didn't decide to try to play anything, these are the songs that happened when we started jamming, and I love this band because there are no egos involved. Our goal is to make the best music possible, period. I love it when those guys contribute with melodies, and I've even helped with some of the arrangements. Because we all think alike, our lyrics deal with the issues of the day, and that makes for better songs."

The band will release their debut album, Up in Arms, on July 14 via Metal Blade Records. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere their new song, "Manic." Check it out below.

Joseph says of the track, "I listened on my iPhone while I was in the gym training, left immediately, went home and wrote the lyrics. It's that kind of a feeling. Lyrically, it's about people mistaking kindness for weakness. Big fucking mistake."
