The band states:
''We are very excited to present to you all: The official video for our new single ‘Humans are Broken’! This song is representative of our new album (also entitled ‘Humans are Broken’) in many ways: The mix of brutality, melody and different genres music-wise, and the engagement with issues in contemporary society lyric-wise. The video functions as a visual counterpart to our reflection on who we are as humans, how we interact with each other and our place in this world.

We are very happy with how this video turned out and hope you guys enjoy watching it as much as we did making it. Special thanks for recording and producing this track goes out to our friend Martin Furia (check out his solo in our vid!), to V.O. Pulver for mixing and mastering, to Gideon Kessler (Kesslr Motion) for again making an awesome music video, Kelly Thans for being a dystopian survivor for a day, and the people at metal business G.v.Gool who indulged all our fancies for recording - and let’s not forget a cuddle for our canine buddies in the vid ?? And thanks to everyone else who helped us out in any way to make this possible!

We can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the song and video, so please shout out to us on social media!

The label has posted the following statement:
"It is with great sadness that we must announce that our CEO & Founder, Erik Lindmark, passed away last night after battling with Sclerosis.
The indelible mark he has left on the Death Metal genre is monumental, both as a business man and as a musician. After building this label from scratch with his Deeds bandmates, Erik took Unique Leader to a level he had never expected it, or the genre, to get to.
During his time in Hospital, Erik was absolutely implicit with his instructions to staff to go full steam ahead with the label in his absence- which is exactly what we intend to do. That being said, we will not be releasing anything in January so that we can make the necessary adjustments and delegations within the company. We would like to thank you all for your well wishes, support and kindness toward Erik on socials and via private correspondence.
