Rockets to Ruin, 'Got Me Down' -- New Video

If you've been with me awhile, then you know I'm a fan of Rockets to Ruin. Well, the band has a new video, which is exciting stuff. The video is for the song "Got Me Down" and will be on the upcoming release Mutual Disrespect. While that album doesn't have an official release date, rest assured it is coming.

Mutual Disrespect was produced by Jan Nerud.

The album will feature these songs:

Got Me Down
Devil Girl
Back Off
Get It On
Bonnie and Clyde
Screamin' At Me
Helpless (Acoustic Version)
Gotta Go, Gotta Roll

In the past, I've said Rockets to Ruin reminded me of Buckcherry. This new single "Got Me Down" sounds much less sleazy...I'm hoping the rest of  Mutual Disrespect has that glam/sleaze feeling. I really feel like these guys fit right in the sweet spot somewhere between Rhino Bucket and Junkyard...or at least they used to...time will tell when the new album is released I guess.

The video was shot and edited by Steve Fasone.

Hello der,

I like the blog. Thanks for all the new bands to look up. I’m promoting an interesting one off project, Suede Ape, that brought together some pretty talented and creative LA musicians from different backgrounds including Geoff Rowan (In Sepia), and Andrew Monzon (Last Legs). Instead of a typical guitar, bass, drums line up, some electronic elements (kaos pad, synth, drum pad, etc.) were used to keep it fresh. There was no big concept besides the simple idea of editing a jam into an album, but that’s kind of what's exciting about an unplanned thing like this: your not sure where it will go. Have a listen. See if you like…

From the track listing it appears that they're re-releasing a lot of tracks from "Love, Drugs, Rebellion" -
Devil Girl
Screamin' At Me
Helpless (Acoustic Version)
Gotta Go, Gotta Roll

Those are the ones I recognize for sure. So, that being the case, I can assure you that the new album will still have that Skid Row/GnR/Buckcherry style of sleaze. I've seen them live a couple times down here in Atlanta (they're home base) and they put on a KICK ASS show. Hoping to catch them again around the release of this new album. They're a band that deserves a LOT of attention.
