My first video post after returning from Bloodstock so please eksyooz eny spulling mesteeks… Still a little the worse for wear!
The Lounge Kittens – “Poison”
The Kittens have just finished a run at The Edinburgh Fringe, have an October tour scheduled and their debut full-length Sequins and C-Bombs is due to drop in a big glittery explosion on September 16th. This, the first song they ever arranged as a trio, is track one from the album which you can still pre-order via Pledge Music.
Broncho – “Speed Demon”
Ahead of their forthcoming UK tour, Oklahoma’s Broncho have shared a new music video for “Speed Demon”, taken from their new album Double Vanity, out now on Dine Alone Records.
Jagged and intense, “Speed Demon” is a two-minute thrill ride. “This is a song about going all the way, and then finding time to finish,” frontman Ryan Lindsey explains. “Finishing is the key to any race. It’s also about Satan,” he adds.
Pain – “Call Me”
First of a double-header featuring Sabaton’s Joakim Brodèn! Pain’s Peter Tägtgren has produced many of Sabaton’s albums and has a new one from one of his projects, Pain, coming out September 9th. Coming Home was being worked on around Sabaton’s The Last Stand, so Peter grabbed Joakim and made him since about a gigolo… as you do. Peter states:
I’m elated to present the first video from our new album. Joakim from Sabaton joins us on this track, and it was an unmitigated blast recording it in the studio.
Sabaton – “Shiroyama”
Back to familiar territory for Mr Brodèn in this song about… well, here’s the skinny:
It’s the nature of time and history that the old ways must give in to the new ways and the modern age. The battle of Shiroyama in 1877 marks the end of an era and is the last stand of the legendary Samurai. Led by Saigo Takamori, the Samurai was down to 500 warriors at the end of the rebellion when they made their last stand on Mount Shiroyama. At the end of the battle there were only 40 samurai left. They drew their swords and plunged downhill toward the enemy positions until the last of them was mowed down.
