Tourniquet announces the long-awaited new album – ANTISEPTIC BLOODBATH

The title track, ANTISEPTIC BLOODBATH, speaks of the way our society prefers to sanitize brutality. We can have our tidy Christian faith, or continue with no faith at all, as long as we don’t consider the painful bloody price that was paid …for us. We use animals for our food, profit, and amusement, but would rather not know about the needless, often systematic suffering that is inflicted on them by a callous and greedy humanity. “Don’t upset my comfort zone – brutal truth, leave me alone”. The great news is that we have the ability to choose. This album encourages us to make good and humane choices in our daily lives that reflect these images.
