Here Is the New Music Video for Bass Drum of Death's 'Left for Dead'
It has everything an angry, violent young hospital fetishist could want in a music video.
Bass Drum of Death are a two-man rock combo from Oxford, Mississippi. Their third studio album, Rip This, is set for release on October 7 from Innovative Leisure, but the band's streaming it via a call-in phone number right now. In an effort to get the blogosphere chatting about the new album, they've set the lead single, "Left for Dead," to video and given it to us to premiere.
This video has everything an angry, violent young hospital fetishist could want in a music video. The album's cover features BDOD head honcho John Barrett, arms outstretched, holding a shotgun and a football, and those themes of slick and seemingly approved violence carry over into the new video, which seems to tell the story of the coolest guy in the world who has a sweet dune buggy and a very happening bachelor's pad full of guns, knives, and women covered in bandages. The women hang around the house bathing each other, sucking on chess pieces, and playing with powerful weapons all day. It's tough to tell exactly what's happening, but sometimes things don't have to make sense for your brain to know that they are cool. Watch it above and then go buy the album here.
