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.”

Drew Roulette Says Dredg’s New Album Will Have “More Aggression”

During an appearance on theFIVE10 Podcast, Dredg bassist Drew Roulette talked a bit about the band’s next album. According to him, the effort will have “more aggression.”

Roulette said the following [via The PRP]:

“The last record we did, ‘Chuckles And Mr. Squeezy‘ with Dan The Automator, was more electronically focused. And it didn’t seem [to capture] as much of the full potential of our rock personality. So no matter, what the record sounds like—the new one—it’s gonna feel like it’s more dredg again because of that… But at the same time, one thing that we’re also doing which has been really exciting is taking some old songs that we never finished, even from the “El Cielo” era.

Or, the other day I found this video clip of Dino playing this awesome beat in Studio 880 in Oakland in 1999; I brought that to the jam room and just played it and Mark [Engles, guitar] and I jammed to him, he wasn’t even there, but we’re just jamming to this beat that was written 20 years ago. So it’s this weird amalgamation of the past and the present that’s creating this new music. So that’s unique.”

“It’s exciting to get in there and just fuckin’ slam on the drums and make loud fuckin’ music and we love it and we’ve been doing that. So it’s gonna be a lot of that, more aggression.”

Roulette went on to say that the band were sitting on about 20 demos and that they had about 40 new song ideas. For now, the group are continuing the writing process.

In other news, Dredg are also working on an audio visual scrapbook featuring footage, photos, etc. from their career.

Metallica Have Written Over Ten New Songs

During a recent appearance on “The Fierce Life” podcast, Metallica frontman James Hetfield offered an update on the band’s new material. According to him, the group have written over 10 new songs.

Hetfield said the following:

“…We started experimenting with writing on Zoom. Lars and I would get together, or Kirk and Lars, and we would get little bits of time here and there writing. It was difficult because of the delay in the sound, so we couldn’t actually play together, but we would play to a click track and watch each other play.

We had our producer, who was running my computer while I was playing. He was running my computer from L.A., and I’m in Vail [Colorado]. And then Lars had an assistant running his computer from L.A.—he’s up here in San Francisco—and we were playing together, and it was pretty bizarre.

We started writing. We got about—I don’t know—over 10 songs going that way. And then we finally got together. There’s only so much you can do on Zoom.”
