Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons did not wait long to release its latest single and video.
The band debuted its new single ‘Bite My Tongue’ and its companion lyric video Friday. The song and its video are the third from the band’s forthcoming album We Are The Bastards, which is scheduled for release Nov. 13 through Nuclear Blast Records. The premiere comes one week after the band debuted the album’s second single, ‘We’re The Bastards’ and its video, and more than a month after the group debuted the album’s lead single ‘Son of a Gun’ and its video.
The lyric video for ‘Bite My Tongue’ places the song’s lyrics against a montage of footage that features, imagery, such as a person shouting and pointing a finger, a person shouting through a megaphone while his mouth is covered in tape, and a person typing way at a keyboard. The imagery is used to help illustrate the message in the song’s lyrical theme, which “encourages” people to think before they just spout off at the mouth.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Bite My Tongue’ is a heavy, driving, up-tempo modern rock style composition. Its stylistic approach and sound will appeal to fans of Stone Sour among other similar acts.
Guitarist Todd Campbell said of the band’s latest single, “Because ‘We’re The Bastards’ said the word “Bastard” too many bastard times in it we decided to release ‘Bite my Tongue’ too for your listening pleasure. It never says the word ‘bastard’ in it, but we threw in a few ‘shits’ for good measure!”
In other news, Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons have launched a new apparel line. Specifically speaking, the band has launched a new line of t-shirts to help pay its road crew since live performances are all but nonexistent right now.
