Kings Of Chaos, the all-star musical collective headed by Matt Sorum (ex-Guns N’ Roses, etc.), have premiered a new video for their new song “Judgement Day.” Sorum worked on the track with his Velvet Revolver bandmates Slash, Dave Kushner, and Duff McKagan. Sorum commented:
“Drawing inspiration from the 1971 film ‘Vanishing Point’ morphed with imagery inspired by ‘Natural Born Killers’, director Brian Cox (Bring Me The Horizon, Cypress Hill, Misfits) and I conceptualized a man running from his demons on a wild ride to find redemption guided by The Reverend Willy G (portrayed by Billy F Gibbons), an Angel (portrayed by Matt’s fashion designer, choreographer wife Ace Harper) on a motorcycle and his inner child. A Wayward Wanderer searching for the light.”
Matt Sorum (ex-Guns N’ Roses) has signed a new deal with AFM Records for the debut album from his Kings Of Chaos project. It is unclear who will be featured on the record, but previous live shows have found Sorum joined by a number of special guests including members of Aerosmith, Heart, Slipknot, Queen, ZZ Top, and more.
“It’s a celebration with your bucket list artists you’ve always wanted to play with. Kings Of Chaos, to me, is the reason I started playing music in the first place — for the sheer fun of it. I’m so pleased to be partnering with the team at AFM. Working with them on the creative vision for the album has been a great experience.”
AFM’s label manager Nils Wasko added:
“Matt Sorum is such an acclaimed rock icon. His clear vision and passion for Kings Of Chaos really impressed us. Kings Of Chaos will now come to life with an illustrious list of rock royalty joining Matt, and we can’t wait to be part of the journey.”
The album’s first single, “Judgment Day,” will be released on October 28.
