Hard rock super group Firstborne debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend.
The band — Chris Adler (ex-Lamb of God), James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth), Girish Pradhan (Girish and the Chronicles), and “Myrone” — debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Roll The Dice‘ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s debut self-titled EP, which was released this past Spring.
The video incorporates the song’s lyrics into a series of visual effects while the song plays over the video. Because the imagery flashes very quickly throughout, those who are susceptible to seizures are cautioned against watching the video, but only listening to the song.
The song’s musical arrangement is certain to appeal to a wide range of listeners. It crosses a punk element with a straight-forward guitar rock approach for a distinct whole. Adler’s time keeping is simple here, but that is a good thing. It shows that he is just as talented in keeping standard time as he is with more complex polyrhythmic patterns.
LoMenzo’s work on bass works well with Adler’s time keeping to flesh out the song’s rhythm section. Meanwhile “Myrone” shines on guitar while Pradhan’s vocals are sharp and tight in their own way.
Adler talked about the song’s musical arrangement in a recent interview.
“’Roll the Dice’ shows Firstborne turning another unexpected turn musically that I could not have done before,” said Adler. “It’s the perfect song to drive fast with the windows down air drumming on your wheel.”
Additionally, Adler addressed the song’s lyrical theme during his interview.
“Somewhat ironically, it speaks to how those memorable moments can turn to tragedy,” he said. “We only go around this thing once and as Elvis Costello — and, bizarrely, the Meatmen — best said it back in the day, ‘Accidents will happen, you don’t know when, accidents are waiting around the bend.’ Enjoy what you have left.”
LoMenzo added to Adler’s statement, noting, “‘Roll The Dice’ is an energetic snapshot of what Firstborne is all about,” he said. “Shutting out self-doubt, shutting down fear and just going for it!”
