PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS have released a new music video!
The new music video, for the track Welcome To Hell, is taken from the band’s upcoming debut album The Age of Absurdity which is scheduled to be released later this month. Speaking about the upcoming debut album, Campbell says, “I am really excited for the fans to hear our debut record. Every part of the process was done in Wales, from the writing, to the recording and even the artwork! The album title The Age Of Absurdity was inspired by the crazy world we live in today. The world to me seems to be a bit of a theatre show, so the album artwork idea just seemed to fit so well with the whole concept and album title.” Vocalist Neil Starr adds, “writing and recording this album was a lot of fun. We got to record at Rockfield Studios where so many great artists had been over the years – it really was inspirational. Hearing the blistering riffs that the Campbell family seem to churn out effortlessly made me ensure I pushed myself to the limits when writing the melodies and lyrics. It’s an album that I, and the rest of the band, are very proud of and can’t wait to share it with the world!”
