Dec. 10 — The Rumjacks debuted its latest single and companion video over the weekend.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus‘ Friday, along with the song’s video. The song and its video are the second from the band’s forthcoming EP, Brass For Gold, which is scheduled for release Feb. 11. The band premiered the record’s lead single, ‘One For The Road‘ Oct. 29.
‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus’ takes a different route, musically, than its predecessor. The song’s arrangement takes the band in a more ska-punk direction versus the more direct Celtic punk style and sound of ‘One For The Road.’ At the same time, the band’s familiar Celtic influence is just as present in ‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus’ as in ‘One For The Road.’ The end result is an arrangement that is just as enjoyable as its predecessor in its blend of familiarity and unique approach and sound.
No information was presented about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of The Rumjacks’ new single and video. Looking through the lyrics provided with the video though, the song comes across lyrically as being from the vantage point of a man who is pining for a lost love.
The video for ‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus’ is a relatively simple presentation. Much as with the video for ‘One For The Road,’ it largely features footage of the band out and about and on stage as the song plays over that overall visualization.
