"Welcome To Hell" follows Black Midi's official release of their Cavalcovers EP in March, and is teamed with a Gustaf Holtenäs-directed video.

Hellfire will follow Black Midi's 2021 second album Cavalcade. Guitarist and vocalist Geordie Greep said, "if Cavalcade was a drama, Hellfire is like an epic action film."

Greep added, "Almost everyone depicted is a kind of scumbag. Almost everything I write is from a true thing, something I experienced and exaggerated and wrote down. I don’t believe in Hell, but all that old world folly is great for songs, I’ve always loved movies and anything else with a depiction of Hell. Dante’s Inferno. When Homer goes to Hell in The Simpsons. There’s a robot Hell in Futurama. Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Jewish writer who portrays a Satan interfering in people’s lives. There’s loads!"

Hellfire was written in lockdown following the release of last year's album, and is produced by Marta Salogni.
