NORWEGIAN STONER PUNKS BOKASSA UNVEIL VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘MOUTHBREATHERS INC.’
NEW ALBUM ‘CRIMSON RIDERS’ OUT JUNE 21
BAND CURRENTLY ON TOUR WITH METALLICA
Norwegian stoner punks BOKASSA are pleased to unveil the official video for new single ‘Mouthbreathers Inc.’, taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Crimson Riders’, due out June 21st. The video will premiere on the band’s YouTube channel at 5pm BST / 6pm CET today at: https://youtu.be/DZ86JrXrsZk. Subscribe and click on ‘set reminder’ to view the live premiere!
The video was shot earlier this month by Video Ink. The director comments, “Mouthbreathers Inc. was filmed in the same building as Captain America, Sherlock Holmes, and Peaky Blinders – a large crumbling Victorian building in Manchester city centre. Shot over one day, we captured a punked up police raid and a crazy death cult featuring some of Manchester’s best actors.”
BOKASSA frontman Jørn adds, “The video takes part in a not so distant future where suicide cults start popping up all over the world as the comet ‘Reaper’ makes its way towards Earth and a certain impending doom. We follow both the ‘4th Wall’ cult, police, and the media’s perspective while the comet comes closer to impact.”
BOKASSA fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk. Their 2017 debut album, ‘Divide & Conquer’ was lauded by critics across the globe. Metal Hammer UK hailed it as one of the best debuts of 2017, describing them as “intense, unpretentiously creative, and relentlessly rhythmic.”
‘Crimson Riders’ was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian ‘Big Bass’ Gardener. The record is set for a 21st June release on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. Pre-order now at: https://lnk.to/Bokassa.
BOKASSA enthuse, “We are very excited to release ‘Crimson Riders’. Nine songs which revolve around everything from cults, religion, and border patrols to beer-drinking anti-heroes and immortal space pirates! Sonically, the album gives the listener everything from classic stoner-punk tracks, groovy desert songs, and high speed thrash metal, to hardcore-oriented sing-a-longs. This time we also played around with both cellos and saxophone in the studio so expect a few curve-balls here and there.”
