Blacktop Mojo Debuts ‘Wicked Woman’ Video; Announces New Live Dates

Blacktop Mojo is continuing to build anticipation for its next album.

The band premiered the video for its latest single, ‘Wicked Woman’ Wednesday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming self-titled album, which is scheduled for release Aug. 13. Pre-orders are open.

The 12-song record is the band’s fourth record and will come approximately two years after the release of the band’s third album, Under The Sun. Additionally, it will come more than a year after the release of the band’s EP, Static.

The premiere of ‘Wicked Woman’ was preceded by that of the album’s lead single, ‘Tail Light‘ and its video.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Wicked Woman’ is the polar opposite of that featured in ‘Tail Light.’ Where ‘Tail Light’ is a gentle, contemplative composition, ‘Wicked Woman’ is a heavy, bluesy work that even incorporates a little bit of metal influence in the song’s bridge.

No information about the song’s lyrical theme was presented in the press release distributed about the video’s premiere. However, the song’s title, lyrical content and video makes clear that the song is about a man trying to get away from a very bad woman.

In the case of the video, one of the band members is trying to get away from a couple of the men who have been put under the evil woman’s spell. It should be stressed here that due to some visual content and language this video is borderline NSFW.

In related news, Blacktop Mojo announced this week, the dates for the next leg of its tour in support of its new album. The second leg of the band’s tour is scheduled to launch Sept. 24 in Ft.
