Alien Weaponry Premiere “Tangaroa” Music Video

Alien Weaponry have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Tangaroa.” That effort will be released on September 17.

Lewis de Jong commented:

“We decided to write this song about how the ocean is being suffocated by humans and their waste. The ocean is an important part of my life, and it’s important to protect it.”

Henry de Jong added:

“‘Tangaroa‘ is a heavy and angry message about how we are destroying the ocean with pollution and overfishing. The video ties in with this message, with us drowning in plastic conveying the struggle of ocean life.”

“The album is tied together with the message of ‘Tangaroa’ – the whole album is more a snapshot of the band’s brains during the writing process. We have also written songs that are about some of our first tupuna (ancestors) who were here in Aotearoa (New Zealand). Hatupatu, who is very famous in Maori history, as well as Ihenga, who named a number of places in Aotearoa during his travels.”
