The God Bombs Takes On Corporate America In New Single, Video

Feb. 13 — Independent goth rock band The God Bombs premiered its latest single and video this week.

The band unveiled its new single, ‘Black and Yellow‘ Monday. The band premiered the song’s companion video Friday. The band’s new single, which could end up as part of the band’s forthcoming album, Godhead, features a musical arrangement that immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Marilyn Manson, right down to the industrial/goth style instrumentation and vocals. The comparison is inescapable.

According to a statement from the band, the song’s lyrical theme centers on the negative influence of the workplace on people who are just trying to do their jobs, and the song’s video does well to illustrate the message.

“The video explores the horror of corporate America, where talented humans are bled of their creativity and funneled into a meaningless “hive” system of work and drudgery,” the statement reads. “The concept began with the idea to have disgruntled office workers and an overbearing boss villain who would morph into some kind of bee creature with hives sprouting out of him.”

The video features an already bad boss being turned into one of those horrible bosses everybody has to deal with after being stung by a “toxic” bee. The horrible boss ends up becoming infected with a deadly disease and being hospitalized after having harassing his employees as a result of the infection.

This is a strong illustration of the message that the statement explained by the band.

While audiences wait for The God Bombs to release its new album, they can also enjoy its latest EP, Simulation, which is available now. The record was released in December.
