According to drummer David Sandström:
“The title [Dawkins Christ] refers to the famous biologist whose atheist theology has inspired a semi-cult who in turn sees him as a messianic figure, an irony that partly inspired the lyrics. The music draws from the film scores of Hans Zimmer and Ennio Morricone as well as pre-Reign in blood Slayer.”
“Dawkins Christ” comes from the band’s upcoming album Freedom, which is set to be released on June 30, 2015 via Epitaph Records. Freedom marks Refused’s first new material since their seminal 1998 album, “The Shape Of Punk To Come”.
