Launch video for “
(Refuse To Be) Bound By Chains”!

Washington D.C. Crossover Thrashers RED DEATH are releasing their third studio album and Century Media Records debut “Sickness Divine” worldwide today.

Therefore a video clip filmed by David Thelen & Norman Heiner during RED DEATH’s recent European tour with Cro-Mags is being launched today for the song “(Refuse To Be) Bound By Chains”:

RED DEATH’s vocalist/bassist Chad Troncale checked in with the following comment about “(Refuse To Be) Bound By Chains”: “I resist life’s oppression and prefer to live my life by my rules. It’s very much a “Robin Hood” minded song. Featuring four lines written by one of my favorite lyricists, Mr. Jason Tarpey (Eternal Champion / Iron Age).

Previously RED DEATH have release the following singles off their new album:

United by a love for “Master Of Puppets“-era Metallica, “Animosity“-era Corrosion of Conformity, Discharge and the best of 80’s Thrash Metal, RED DEATH was born out of a 2013 basement jam session between drummer Connor Donegan (also of Genocide Pact), guitarist Ace Mendoza and frontman Chad Troncale. RED DEATH became an underground favorite with the release of 2015’s “Permanent Exile“ followed by US gigs and tours with the likes of Power Trip and Obituary. With 2017’s “Formidable Darkness“ album and a line-up that saw Troncale assume bass and vocal duties as well as the addition of Enforced guitarist Will Wagstaff, Having played shows across North America with the likes of Power Trip, Iron Reagan, Municipal Waste, Exodus, Obituary, Terror and also a European tour with Foreseen last year. RED DEATH proved themselves a force to be reckoned with and 2019 saw the band’s return to European stages supporting Cro-Mags prior to the worldwide release of their third full-length album “Sickness Divine” via Century Media Records.
