Boston area punk-metal crossover mainstay Mongrel has unveiled their new music video for the song “Bored to Death” from their upcoming full length album Reclamation, which is set for release on 25 Sept. on THC-X, the digital imprint of THC-Music, home of American Head Charge, Black Light Burns, Attika7, Slaves on Dope, etc.
“Bored to Death” is the lead off track from the band’s forthcoming album which has been described as “…an awesome album chock full of snot nosed, stiff upper lipped punk anthems with some tasty hard rock licks thrown into the mix” (Ian Webber, 90.3 WKRB-FM). Directing and producing the band’s first proper music video was Jim Foster at Red 13 Media (Godsmack, Graveyard BBQ, Nullset). CD versions of Reclamation can be pre-ordered at http://mongrel.bandcamp.com
The band decided to go with Bloody Good Horror as a launch partner because “we know a LOT of our fans are into the horror genre,” says guitarist, Adam Savage, “so this seemed like a good opportunity to turn them on to a cool site they might enjoy and to get our video out to fans of Bloody Good Horror who might be checking us out for the first time. Definitely a win-win and perfect timing with our upcoming appearance the the Rock & Shock Festival next month!”
“Mongrel is an upstart band with a big sound and comes armed with enough confidence in their talent make an instant impression“, says M. Drew, music editor at Bloody Good Horror. “The band has emerged from some lineup changes armed with grit and fury, funneling that raw power out of their instruments and sending it surging through your speakers.”
