Deadland Ritual Emerge With ‘Broken and Bruised’ Video
It's a big week for Deadland Ritual, as the band is following up their world concert debut at the Troubadour in Los Angeles with a brand new song. Check out their new video for "Broken and Bruised" below.
The Michael P Blevins-directed clip allows viewers to see some of the live dynamic that happens when singer Franky Perez, bassist Geezer Butler, guitarist Steve Stevens and drummer Matt Sorum put their years of hard rocking experience together into one bluesy, rocking new band.
"'Broken and Bruised' is the song that started Deadland Ritual," Sorum tells Loudwire. "It is the birth of a new band with new music, something we all strive for as artists and musicians, moving forward with a new sound linked to our past and where we came from. I think 'Broken and Bruised' embodies that. The video is straight performance of four musicians doing what we do best, playing live rock n roll." Get a closer look at the video below.
"Broken and Bruised" follows on the heels of the lead single "Down in Flames," and will help set the tone for their touring to come. The band is set for a June run in Europe, returning stateside this fall for a couple of festival appearances at Louder Than Life and Aftershock.
