THE ALBUM ‘SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE’
OUT NOW, VIA MOTÖRHEAD MUSIC/SILVER LINING MUSIC
Hollywood rock & roll group BUDDERSIDE bridge the gap between the sexy swagger of the Sunset Strip and the soulful depths of Seattle on their forthcoming sophomore release SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE out March 26 via Motörhead Music/Silver Lining Music. Its fourth single, “Amber Alert (featuring Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies),” is out now, streaming across all digital platforms HERE. The band premiered its seductive music video March 18th. In the video, BUDDERSIDE vocalist Patrick Stone and Harvey lead viewers into a circus where the devil is the ringleader—portrayed by music personality and host of KLOS’ ‘New and Approved’ show Matt Pinfield.
“In LA everyone wants to be a rockstar but no one wants to put the work in,” says Butcher Babies vocalist Harvey. “Patrick is a long-time friend of mine that has always shown true tenacity in going after his dreams. Both of us have picked up the pieces and started over many times to come as far as we have. I’m super proud of what he’s done with Budderside, so naturally I said yes when he asked me to feature on ‘Amber Alert.’ I had a blast throwing a little estrogen on this banger!”
“Budderside are one of the most exciting bands out of LA in a really long time,” declares Pinfield. “For my money–what rock music should be. They have the goods–a frontman with real swagger and incredible players who deliver their songs with passion, power and conviction. Visually, the band’s videos for the new album are on an unparalleled level of creativity. I was honored to be a part of their new video for the single ‘Amber Alert.’ The song’s heavy groove is complimented by the vocal duet with Budderside’s charismatic frontman Patrick Stone and Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey, who adds a heavy, menacing yet melodic interplay with this unforgettable in-your-face rock anthem that never lets up and doesn’t disappoint.”
SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE was recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage). Its 10 spiritually evocative and meticulously crafted songs are thoughtfully designed to resonate, both musically and lyrically, across the world.
Two of the band’s recently shared video singles–“Zen” (filmed in Tokyo and directed by Erik Bishop) and the animated “Pardon Me (featuring Phil Campbell of Motörhead)” (directed by Pablo Conde)— were selected at several independent film festivals including Los Angeles Film Awards, Virgin Spring Cinefest, Fantasy/Sci-Fi Film & Screenplay Festival and Lift off Global Network Berlin. Additionally, “Pardon Me” was recently updated as a finalist for the Golden Short Film Festival.
BUDDERSIDE has previously been on tours alongside Motörhead, Slayer, Anthrax and L.A. Guns as well as being featured on international festivals including Wacken Open Air, Motörboat, Malmö Festival and the Monsters Of Rock cruise. They look forward to returning to the stage following the safe relaunch of live events.
