Count the Dead (Official Video)

8 OCTOBER 2021 (LONDON, UK) – The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara announce the release of their new single, ‘Count the Dead’, which released worldwide today. The track is the first taste of their forthcoming second studio album Trust No Leaders, due 2022.

The events of 2020-21 have exposed the fragility of our global systems and the flawed foundations on which modern societies and economies are built. ‘Count the Dead’ brings attention to complex issues concerning the value of human life. The song draws attention to the social and economic injustices that plague society, and the violent health inequalities that have been further exacerbated by the global pandemic, which has now claimed more than 4 million lives worldwide.    

"We composed this song as an outrage towards the governments across the world who have failed to act and protect their communities. It advocates for protest against world leaders, whose negligence and recklessness have resulted in one of the largest ‘avoidable’ losses of lives in generations." - The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara

Continuing the themes addressed in ‘Love in the Time of Pestilence’, ‘Count the Dead’ is the second instalment of songs addressing the ongoing pandemic and global crisis. At a time when the world appears to be more divided than ever before, discourse has never been more important, and urgent.
