Des Moines, Iowa based psychedelic/stoner metal trio DRUIDS recently announced that their new album, ‘Monument‘, is scheduled for release on April 19, 2019 via The Company KC. The album is available to pre-order now via Bandcamp, with exclusive multi-colored vinyl also available via The Company KC here. Today, the band in celebration regarding, has released their first official new music video from their new upcoming album for the track, “New Breath“. The new video which was directed by Bo Becker of Transpiritus Video is certainly attention drawing as it is pretty much retro in depiction and inspired by sci-fi.
Guitarist/vocalist Luke Rauch says about the video, “I came up with the idea for the video while listening to an early mix of the song on a walk. It came to me as an over the top, gory, sketch-comedy bit and evolved into what is now with the help of Bo at Transpiritus. I feel like the video captures the goofy side of our band while sticking with the adventurous/psychedelic vibe of the song.“
He further goes onto add, “New Breath is about keeping balance when everything is speeding past you. The
three of us keep very busy at home with our home life, jobs and other projects. Finding a balance can be tricky but it’s essential.“
‘Monument‘ track listing:
1) New Breath
2) Iron Healer
3) Mirrors of Trigon
4) The Whip
‘Monument‘ was produced by Brandon Darner, engineered and mixed by Micah Natera, and mastered by Doug Van Sloan.
