Scandinavia’s leading all-lady hard rock/heavy metal outfit, CRUCIFIED BARBARA, has teamed up with Guitar World to launch a guitar playthrough video of a brand new song “I Sell My Kids for Rock’N’Roll”, check it out HERE. The track comes from the band’s upcoming album In the Red, out September 10 on Desptoz Records. In the Red can be pre-ordered now through the Crucified Barbara web-store HERE.
The band’s Despotz debut was recorded at Studio Music-A-Matic, Gothenburg with producer Chips Kiesby and engineer Henryk Lip. Artwork for album number four comes courtesy of Stockholm, Sweden artist Erik Rovanpera.
Dealing with topics like misogyny and animal rights, Crucified Barbara calls In the Red “the best thing we’ve ever done musically. We have always been shocked by injustice and oppression, and this time, our opinions have taken an even bigger place in the songwriting.”
Earlier this year, Crucified Barbara launched a music video for the track “To Kill a Man” on YouTube (watch below), stating “One fifth of all the world’s women have been raped or assaulted in their lifetime. The dark statistics became the basis for the song ‘To Kill a Man’ and our most important message of the video. The production company 11Frames has captured our vision perfectly, and we are proud that we take the opportunity lifting heavy topics such as violence and sexism with a really heavy hard rock video.”
“To Kill a Man” can be purchased on iTunes HERE and streamed on Spotify at:
An additional track, “Electric Sky,” is streaming on RevolverMag.com HERE.
