Health Collaborate with Lauren Mayberry (CHVRCHES) on A New Version of Their Song “Ashamed”

L.A. industrial-rock band, Health, have released a reworking of their track, “Ashamed,” in collaboration with CHVRCHES vocalist, Lauren Mayberry. The original version appeared on their latest album, Rat Wars (Loma Vista Recordings), with this new take featuing Mayberry on two verses, blending with Health singer Jake Duzsik. Listen to the track and read more below.

On Tuesday, KEXP released Health’s exhilarating Live on KEXP session showcasing Rat Wars tracks “Unloved” and “Ashamed,” as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 original “Major Crimes” and their Deftones cover, “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away).” The trio of Duzsik, John “Johnny” Famiglietti, and BJ Miller are now out on a European tour of festivals and headlining dates, including Roadburn, Tons of Rock, and more. Later this year, they’ll play Chicago’s Riot Fest and Louisville’s Louder Than Life festival, before they head back to Europe for more headlining shows.

Health’s long and willfully unconventional career arc has coalesced in Rat Wars, their acclaimed 2023 album (Loma Vista Recordings) that cements them in the lineage of groundbreaking heavy acts like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry, who re-drew the borders between metal, electronic and pop music. It could be The Downward Spiral for people with at least two monitors and a vitamin D deficiency. Released digitally in December, and produced by Stint (Oliver Tree, Demi Lovato) and mixed by Lars Stalfors (Salem, The Neighbourhood), Rat Wars is now Health’s highest streaming album, with 24 million global streams to date. Their fifth LP also debuted at #1 on Apple’s Alternative Top Albums Chart and in the Top 10 of Spotify‘s Top Albums Chart, while earning the trio guest appearances on Amoeba’s What’s In My Bag, Comedy Bang Bang’s CBB.FM, Joe Pug’s The Working Songwriter, and more. Recently, album track “Hateful” won the Best Record From Games and Interactive Media category at A2IM’s 2024 Libera Awards for its appearance in the hit video game Ultrakill.

2024 is shaping up to be Health’s busiest year to date. Metal legends Lamb of God, whose guitarist Willie Adler is featured on the menacing Rat Wars track “Children Of Sorrow,” just announced they will once again team up with Health for a new remix of their track “Laid To Rest” on their Ashes Of The Wake (20th Anniversary Edition) LP due out August 30th, 2024, via Epic Records/Legacy Recordings. In April, Health released their first collaboration with chart-topping rock band Bad Omens and electronic sensation Swarm on another powerhouse track, “The Drain,” from Bad Omens’ Concrete Jungle [The Ost] (Sumerian Records). A ‘selected works’ thematic album compilation playlist, featuring the band’s most beloved tracks, was also recently released across all DSPs. In February, Health’s installment for Spotify Singles–a darkly vibrant reworking of Deftones’ classic “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)”–debuted just ahead of their headlining Rat-based Warfare Tour that saw sold-out shows Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Portland, Toronto, Seattle, and San Francisco, among others.
