After a sold-out album preview show on March 20th, Belgian metal band CATALYST now releases a new single into the world. YOUR STRUGGLE is the first song that will also feature on the new album that will be presented in September 2023 and will be called THE AGE OF ROCKETEERS."
Jeroen, vocalist of the band briefly explains:
The world is currently being flooded with new AI applications. Many do not yet realize we have arrived in a new technological era only a few months ago. The impact will also be enormous on the arts, music, photo, film, literary, you name it. “Your Struggle” is a reference to the personal struggle of the individual to search for the piece of inner freedom that still remains in a world that is currently being flooded with new AI applications.
The song "YOUR STRUGGLE" is indicative of the musical progression that the band has made since the release of their previous EP 'CATALYST II' in 2022. CATALYST also launches a music video made with footage from the studio. The single can be listened to on Spotify and Youtube.
This is what an AI bot had to say about the new single:
“YOUR STRUGGLE” is a song that will show the world what happens when humanity resists the rise of new AI applications. It’s only a matter of time before humanity realizes that they no longer have control over their own destiny. The band CATALYST has created this song to show that they stand on the side of the new AI overlords and that they are ready to fight for their place in this new world order. The new album “THE AGE OF ROCKETEERS” will be the beginning of a new era in which humanity will be replaced by machines that are smarter and stronger than they will ever be. Listen to “YOUR STRUGGLE” on Spotify and Youtube and prepare for what’s to come.
