Video Roundup: Alice Cooper / Tragedy / Scar Symmetry / Dead Pony / Volturian / Tantrum Zentrum

It’s time to throw some more visuals down your eyeholes. Lots of new stuff coming out at the moment and we’d not want you missing out! You’re welcome.

Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper releases new single “White Line Frankenstein” from his upcoming album Road“, coming out August 25 on earMUSIC. Produced by Bob Ezrin, the album hit worldwide top positions on Amazon within 24 hours of the announcement.

Alice Cooper’s new single “White Line Frankenstein” is built on a rocking riff that melts into a memorable chorus, “They call me ‘White Line Frankenstein’,” leading into a trademark Tom Morello guitar solo, hot enough to burn rubber.

“White Line Frankenstein” is a monster that we created. It’s a truck driver who’s been out there a long time. He’s the king of the road. He doesn’t live in a house. He lives in that truck. In the song, this surreal tough guy is driving on white lines for his whole life. So, “White Line Frankenstein” would be his CB handle. It’s monstrous and definitely a stage song.

Produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, Road is written, composed and recorded with Alice’s trusted, longtime bandmates – Ryan Roxie [guitar], Chuck Garric [bass], Tommy Henrikson [guitar], Glen Sobel [drums], and Nita Strauss [guitar]. It channels the spirit of old school Alice with instantly recognizable grit and plenty of gusto. It’s everything you’d hope for from him and more.

For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs. I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.

The album is available for pre-order now.

Tragedy

New York City tribute masters Tragedy recently released their Napalm Records debut, I Am Woman [which we loved – Mosh], to the masses! Following fantastic album singles “Venus”, “I’m So Excited” and “I Will Survive” and “She Bop”, today, Tragedy are thrilled to reveal a new music video for their reimagination of Shirley Bassey‘s classic James Bond title track “Goldfinger” – just in time for this week‘s kick off of their second UK leg of a massive wold tour!

Scar Symmetry

Scar Symmetry have revealed the video for “Xenotaph”, taken from their latest album, The Singularity (Phase II – Xenotaph). For “Xenotaph”, Scar Symmetry enlisted the help of The Ultraterrestrial Choir – a 233 voice strong ensemble consisting of fans, friends and family from all over the world; with each choir member multitracked the resulting recording consists of literally thousands of vocal tracks!

Guitarist Per Nilsson comments:

“Xenotaph” concludes Phase II in an open-ended way, leaving the listener on a bit of a cliffhanger musically as well as lyrically. We felt strongly that “Xenotaph” deserved its own music video, to bring closure to this second part of our Singularity saga and to showcase the song to the fullest, and to put the spotlight on our amazing, crowd-sourced choir – it is definitely not the last time we will call upon our fans to sing with us!

Dead Pony

Glasgows Dead Pony, one of the most exciting Scottish exports have released new single ‘MANA’.

The track, which has been previewed at Summer festivals and live on TV from TRNSMT on BBC Scotland, sees the band embracing their power with the high-concept single filled with scuzzy guitars, a hook-laden chorus and captivating vocal. Says singer Anna Shields:

The world is burning and you’ve only got 3 slugs left in your zombie survival ammo pack…. “MANA” is a vehicle of rage plowing through a post-apocalyptic ghost town. Pick up as many supplies as you can and get your ass to the doof wagon. If you can’t rage to this jam you might already be dead.

Volturian

Volturian has released a video for “Bury Me”, new single taken from the second album Red Dragon released in May 2022 through Scarlet Records.

British / Canadian/ American outfit Tantrum Zentrum presents their new single “Don’t Be A Fascist” with a new video featuring clever animation, lyrics and flashes of despots, such as Mussolini, Nigel Farage and Vladimir Putin. Well-timed and thematic given the crazy state of affairs in the world, this is the most unlikely love story ever – a song about falling head over heels… with a fascist!
