Born Of Osiris Premiere “Angel Or Alien” Video

Born Of Osiris have premiered a new video for their new song “Angel Or Alien.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on July 2.

Lee McKinney commented:

“After what has been an extremely trying year for the world, we couldn’t be more excited to bring you our new album, ‘Angel Or Alien’. We feel like we brought the best elements from each album in our discography and combined them into what you will hear on ‘Angel Or Alien’. So, no matter what album you favor in our discography, this one should shine. We tried to refine and improve on each aspect that makes us Born Of Osiris, and I think it’s apparent on this record.

The ‘Angel Or Alien’ music video was actually extremely challenging for the band and crew. We wanted to walk out into the desert where there were no footprints and find the right spot for the performance shots. I’m sure you can imagine everyone loading guitars, drums, cabs, cameras, power, etc. across the desert with each step you take sinking six inches into the sand. It all lead up to a moment I’ll never forget — everything set up on top of a dune in the desert, performing with my best friends and a great crew of amazing people filming, and looking over the desert in between takes as the sun set. I’ll never forget the moments we shared that day. I think I can speak for the band AND camera crew when I say that we truly hope you love the final product, it was both a challenge and a pleasure to create.”

Joe Buras added:

“There is a longing for connection. It’s not always easy and we crave it whether we know it or sometimes not. We get lost in thought at times but we always have to end up facing the world, exposed to the earth. You can shine like an Angel or hide like an Alien. Either way your heart and time are going towards the future and the end.”

Born Of Osiris Have Already Started Writing Another New Album

Born Of Osiris are still sitting on their new album, but it looks like the band have already started writing material for its follow-up. Guitarist Lee McKinney confirmed the news during an appearance on the “BREWtally Speaking Podcast” saying that he has about “six songs written, for a Born Of Osiris record that isn’t out, when the new one isn’t even out.”

McKinney said the following while discussing the coronavirus pandemic:

“It’s been a to two-sided coin for us. One is—at least at the beginning—I wouldn’t even say at all anymore, but at the beginning, everyone was home. Right? Nobody could really work at all. And so, when records came out right then, I can see why everyone was giving their attention to this record because they had nothing else to do.

But as people started trickling back to work slowly, slowly, my mindset—and I had some of my guys were like: ‘No, let’s put it out now because people will hear it well they got nothing going on and it’ll be special time in their life.’ Okay, I get it. there’s no wrong here.

This is just opinions and perspectives, and mine was the same thing as Every Time I Die… I don’t want to put out a record that we worked years on, and then it’s out, and then a year from now we get to play show again and the first show someone comes up and goes, ‘What are you guys gonna put out a new record?’ I’m like, ‘Oh God.’

So yeah we’re sitting on it, it feels like we fell off the face of the earth. I’ve been trying to do content. So, this March I did a video for each song off of my solo record that didn’t have one previously. So I’ve trying to like be out in the world a little bit but um, it’s a tough time, and those decisions are tough to make. Do we put the record out?

But I will say this, the plan for us, is when we can get on the road again—or just when we have an end goal, or you know place to start where we can kind of start touring; We’re gonna put three music videos out put the record out and by then the thought is okay now we’re back, the world’s back, we’re going to give them this record. But this time we’re going to follow-up a year later or less.

So the thought is when things go back to normal we’re gonna just hit on all cylinders and just be… You know I respect what Bring Me The Horizon‘s been doing because they’ll drop a song, and then a month later, a song, and then another song. And I understand that it pisses some people off—not me I love that by the way—but this pisses some people off because they’re like—I’ve done singles in the middle of nothing and the question is—’When’s the album?’ and it almost feels like it belittles your song.

And so for me I want to like, stay in the open but it’s hard because you know you can’t tour right now. So what we plan on doing is when things come back to normal, drop the record, couple months later my second solo record will come out, and then we’ll tour and then follow-up pretty much immediately because I’m already.

I’m looking at four songs on my third solo record on my desktop right now, and like, six songs written, for a Born Of Osiris record that isn’t out, when the new one isn’t even out. you know what I mean? So the hope is when we come back we hit hard.”

Born Of Osiris Cancel Chicago Drive-In Show

Born Of Osiris’ October 28 drive-in concert at the Lakeshore Drive-In in Chicago, IL has been cancelled. The band were forced to scrap the show due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group commented:

“This week, Chicago added several new states to the city’s emergency travel order, requiring people traveling from CO, OH, DE, WV & TX to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. We have both band and crew members that live in those states, which means that this recent news will directly affect our ability to perform our drive-in show that is scheduled for Wednesday. We have to adhere to all laws and safety regulations, so we have no choice but to cancel this show. All tickets will be refunded.

We’re sorry to anyone that was planning on attending. We’ve done everything possible to make this show happen, but the timing of these new travel restrictions has not worked in our favor. 2020 strikes again 👎 We promise we will make it up to you in the future and under much better circumstances.”
