Small Town Titans is giving audiences a new preview of its forthcoming album The Ride.

The band debuted the video for the album’s sixth single, ‘Rufflin’ Feathers‘ last month. The single’s premiere follows the debut of the album’s other singles, ‘Junkie For You,’ ‘Universal Limits,’ ‘The Man,’ ‘9 to 5‘ and a cover of Marcy Playground’s ‘Sex and Candy.’

The video for ‘Rufflin’ Feathers’ was co-directed by Guiles and Josh Nesmith. It places the band — Phil Freeman (bass, vocals), Ben Guiles (guitar), and Johnny Ross (drums, vocals) — in a studio setting as it performs its new single.

The musical arrangement featured in the video lends itself to a comparison to works from Audioslave. That is evidenced through the Guiles’ guitar work and Freeman’s vocals. Guiles’ guitar work here is very closely similar in terms of sound and style to that of Tom Morello during his Audioslave days. In the same vein, Freeman’s vocal delivery sound and style is eerily reminiscent of of the late, great Chris Cornell. Ross’ time keeping is solid and rich, too.

The lyrical theme featured in the band’s latest single is a social commentary about the negative influence of social media, according to Ross.

“‘Rufflin’ Feathers’ is a tongue-in-cheek song about the circus that is social media this year. It’s become a constant negative assault on the senses. We wrote it for those who want to drown out all of the social noise by turning their speakers up right now.”

The Ride is scheduled for release Nov. 13 through AntiFragile Music. More information on the album is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:
