New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Cumbrian punks COLT 45 are pleased to reveal the video for their latest single ‘All Hell Broke Loose’ – the track is available as an instant-grat download with all iTunes preorders of their forthcoming new EP 'Snakes & Ladders' which is released on 29th April 2016.
The trio recently announced that they will be heading out on a headline tour throughout the EU in support of the new release, with shows in the UK, Germany, Czech Republic and Belgium (see below for full dates).
Staunch champions of their local music scene and independent venues, the video was shot at their local stomping ground The Brickyard in Carlisle, where the band will be holding a special EP launch show for the record on its release date.
“We worked on the video with our good friend Vincent
Walden who did the artwork for our new EP, Snakes & Ladders” comment the band “He'd never worked with video before and wanted a new challenge so we thought why not let him have a go?! We just wanted a fairly straightforward performance video, shot from different angles and quite dark & gritty to match the song. The emphasis is on the track and we like how it fits with the whole DIY aesthetic of COLT 45 and our new record.”
Recently winning national plaudits from the likes of Kerrang! Magazine, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazine, BBC Radio
One and more, COLT 45 are a testament to the phrase “substance over style”. Merging heartfelt, small-town frustration with melodic punk anthems and contagious hooks, the trio have worked their way up from the bottom by gigging relentlessly.
They have become pioneers for the modest Cumbrian rock scene, recently launching their ‘I Remember When The Rain Came Down’ charity single to help victims of the recent floods and donating all proceeds to the Cumbria Flood Appeal.
Having recently toured Germany for the first time and completing further UK tours with The Computers and subsequently FAUX, the band are now gathering an impressive set of notches on the touring and festival posts, with more live dates and further new material in the works for 2016.
'Snakes & Ladders' is released 29th April 2016 via Visible Noise Records
