Hatchet Premiere “Back Into Dust” Video

Hatchet have premiered a new video for their song “Back Into Dust.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Dying To Exist.”

Julz Ramos commented:

“We are proud to unveil our third music video of the ‘Dying To Exist’ album cycle. ‘Back Into Dust’ is a bit of a departure from our usual sound, and one that all four band members collectively contributed to the most from the album. With our first video ‘Desire For Oppression,’ we wanted to showcase the making of the album and really give a glimpse into how the band interacts with each other in a studio setting – the fun, frustrations and of course partying. For this video, we wanted to do the same but showcase the band’s touring side, and what better footage than from our first European tour in late 2018. Check it out, crack a cold one or two and come along for the adventure.”
