Hard rockers Like A Storm have just released their new music video for their track “Pure Evil“. The video was shot south of Chicago by Vince Lundi at the abandoned Methodist Church of Gary, IN, notorious for being one of the most dangerous cities in America.
Lyrically the song addresses the dark side of religious and political power. Guitarist Matt Brooks states, “The cover ups, scandals and exploitation that pervade the highest levels of church and government are just sickening. “Pure Evil” seemed like the perfect way to sum up this absolute hypocrisy – these people appear so righteous, but at their core they are the worst of the worst.”
The track, which blends heavy riffs, double-kick drumming, soaring solos, and an anthemic chorus, is off of the band’s album Catacombs released this past spring via Century Media Records/RED MUSIC. Catacombs is available for purchase and on all streaming devices HERE.
Just this past month, Like A Storm announced their December U.S. headline tour. The band, best known for innovating the use of the didgeridoo with heavy rock, will hit the road with direct support from Palisades starting on December 11th in Lincoln, NE and will wrap on December 22nd in Las Vegas, NV. Fans can purchase VIP and general admission tickets on the band’s website www.likeastorm.com.
Like A Storm will be touring in support of their brand new single, “Complicated (Stitches & Scars)”, off of their third studio album, Catacombs, which was released this past summer via Century Media/RED MUSIC. The record, which debuted on the Top 5 Billboard Heatseekers Charts, Top 50 Billboard Emerging Artist Charts, and Top 100 Billboard Album Charts, was produced by Like A Storm’s very own Chris Brooks, Matt Brooks, and Kent Brooks.
Reviews for Catacombs have been strong from around the world:
Alt Press calls the music “A Melodic Metal Masterpiece.” Whilst Alt Corner out of the UK labeled Catacombs, “Early contender for Album of the Year.”
The record is currently the Editor’s Pick at Japan’s biggest Rock publication Burrn Magazine. And German outlet Time For Metal describes Catacombs as “Alternative Metal as its Best.”
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Like A Storm is the most successful New Zealand rock band in US radio history. First gaining notoriety for incorporating the Didgeridoo into their breakout track, “Love The Way You Hate Me,”, the band’s last 6 singles“Love the Way You Hate Me,” “Wish You Hell,” “Become The Enemy,” “Break Free,” “Pure Evil,” and “The Devil Inside” have all charted at US Active Rock Top 40.
Like A Storm has toured the globe with some of the biggest names in rock – including Alter Bridge, Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Shinedown, Three Days Grace, on top of headlining North America extensively. They have also been invited to perform at the world’s biggest hard rock festivals including: Download (UK), Nova Rock (Europe) and Rock on the Range (U.S.). Their reputation for touring the world relentlessly led Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge/Slash to once label them, “The hardest-working band in the business.” Like A Storm recently wrapped a massive U.S. run supporting Godsmack & Shinedown, where their high-energy live show garnered thousands of new fans on social media. Sully Erna from Godsmack invited Like A Storm up on stage to perform a cover of ACDC’s “Highway to Hell” at their final show in Texas.
