GAMA BOMB SHARE NEW SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO, 'RUSTED GOLD'


Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB has today shared a new single and music video, titled Rusted Gold. Rusted Gold is the second track to be taken from GAMA BOMB's forthcoming eighth album, BATS, which is due for release via Prosthetic Records on November 10. Rusted Gold's accompanying music video, directed by Kiran Acharya, features the band playing live at a series of festival appearances including Hellfest, Pitfest and Japanese Assault Fest.


On the new single, GAMA BOMB vocalist Philly Byrne comments: "Rusted Gold is a Thin Lizzy-style metal epic - it’s a western too, which I think Philip Lynott would approve of.


"I’m fascinated by the role of Irish people in the American frontier times: their story is sometimes overlooked, or reduced to a caricature. So this song is about an Irish cowboy, a refugee from the famine, who’s out for revenge on all the people who treated him as a second-class citizen. When you see how Irish people and culture were treated during the Brexit referendum, I think this is still a relevant story."
