Hugely talented Nashville rockers Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown have premiered the video for their groove-laden track ‘Backfire’ exclusively with Planet Rock.

Directed by Erik Kaufmann, ‘Backfire’ is the second single to be taken from the Shakedown‘s revered self-titled album, out now on Snakefarm Records, following the fiery ‘Heartland’ single…

“‘Backfire’ is a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll jam, so we thought it needed a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll video,” says vocalist / guitaristTyler. “There’s no acting, no storyline, just rocking! We kicked around a ton of ideas playing off the lyrics of the song, but eventually we decided to do what we do best – plug in and play. We hope this video captures the kind of energy you’d experience at a Shakedown show.”

Spawned as a response to the Rock genre frequently being overlooked by the largest British music awards events, The Rocks looks to celebrate the greatest achievements in rock music, both in the UK and beyond. The band are up for two awards, nominated in the ‘Best International Album’ and ‘Best New Band’ categories. Voting is open to the public and closes at 14:00 on Monday February 19th.
