BUDDERSIDE bridge the gap between the sexy swagger of the Sunset Strip and the soulful depths of Seattle on their recent sophomore release SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE via Motörhead Music/Silver Lining Music. Recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage), the album shares heartbreak, perseverance, meditation, and resurrection from the throes of addiction across its 10 spiritually evocative and meticulously crafted songs and features guest appearances from Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and Butcher Babies vocalist Carla Harvey.
The quintet have today (July 23) shared an evocative animated lyric video for the deeply personal track, “Things We Do,” which features MUSYCA Children’s Choir and covers the trials and tribulations of dealing with addiction. Watch it streaming now via YouTube HERE or directly above.
Vocalist/guitarist PATRICK STONE shares: “‘Things We Do’ is a firsthand walk through addiction, the loss of a dear friend and the hypocritical, empty promise of getting high.”
BUDDERSIDE—who were personally signed by late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister–have built a reputation on the road, touring with staple metal acts including Slayer, Anthrax, L.A. Guns and Motörhead, as well as appearing at major worldwide music festivals including WackenOpen Air (Germany), Malmö Festival (Sweden), Motörhead’sMotörboat and Monsters Of Rock cruise. They will continue to bring their riveting performance to the stages as they have been announced as part of the lineup for Rocklahoma (Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit) taking place from September 3-5. Prior to that, BUDDERSIDE will play their first show since the pandemic in their hometown of Los Angeles as they headline The North End Hollywood on Sunday, August 8.
“Budderside are one of the most exciting bands out of LA in a really long time,” declares former MTV VJ and music personality Matt 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.”
BUDDERSIDE have previously released four cinematic music video singles from SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE—including “Zen” (filmed in Tokyo, Japan) and “Pardon Me (feat. Phill Campbell),” which have been featured as finalists and official selections at various independent film festivals (Los Angeles Film Awards, Virgin Spring Cinefest, Fantasy/Sci-Fi Film & Screenplay Festival and Lift Off Global Network Berlin).
