Belgian rock giants TRIGGERFINGER have teamed up with Metal Shock Finland to premiere, for Finnish territory, their first single and music video ‘Flesh Tight’, taken from the upcoming album ‘Colossus’, out August 25th via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group! Watch the video below.
Comments Tarja Virmakari, Metal Shock Finland‘s CEO/Founder/President:
“I see “Flesh Tight” as a “two-level” experience. Firstly, as a song, it remains in your mind with its catchy riffs and tunes, right from the first listening. The second level enters when the video begins; badass girls vs. businessmen (or who ever) who, up till now, thought to dictate the rules, in the world where the roles change in a moment you least expect it. I’m sure the video brings forward a mix of opinions, depends on which part of it affects your mind and personal ideas. Interpretation is freedom!”
TRIGGERFINGER new single, Flesh Tight, sounds like a catwalk strut across Sunset Boulevard driven by pulsating guitars. Vocalist/guitarist Ruben Block about the song: “The basic ingredients for Flesh Tight were written pretty quickly. More or less one flow, connecting the driving guitar-strum and struttin’ beat with the “flesh-tight-feelings” image. They stuck to each other. I preferred Flesh tight opposed to skin tight because it sounded more.. fleshy… There’s something uplifting, yet private and personal in the words.”
The spectacular accompanying music video is quite associative, according to Block: “For the video we were very happy we could work with Pieter Van Hees and his team, a very cool Belgian movie and television director who, in his field always practiced an out of the ordinary, very personal approach. He created his own spin on what the lyrics and music brought him. And that’s just the start. Everyone should feel free to connect whatever images they want to it. Maybe the most important journeys are the ones we make in our minds.”
Flesh Tight is the first song from ‘Colossus’, Triggerfinger’s upcoming album. Colossus will be released on August 25th, and will be the band’s first album with new label Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group. To top it all off, Triggerfinger will announce new tourdates very soon.
