Marty Friedman debuted his latest music video this week.
The veteran guitarist debuted the video for this song ‘Meathook’ this week via Billboard. The video mixes footage of Friedman and his fellow musicians—including Shining (NOR) front man Jorgen Munkeby—performing live with various snippets of vintage butchers carving p large chunks of meat, car crashes, and other footage that is sure to leave audiences talking. Audiences will also note behind the band in its live footage the logo of metal band Arch Enemy. That is because the footage was recorded during his most recent tour with Arch Enemy.
‘Meathook’ comes from Friedman’s latest solo recording Inferno. Friedman has spent the past two years touring in support of Inferno. That time on the road included tours with Gus G., Arch Enemy, and Kreator. His recent live schedule also marked the first time in more than twelve years that he has performed live in the United States.
On Sunday, August 14th, Friedman will wrap his global tour with an orchestra performance at the Famed Hollywood Bowl with veteran flamenco duo Gabriela, who also appeared on another of Inferno’s songs ‘Wicked Pancea.’ Friedman was upbeat when he discussed the upcoming performance. “I’m so excited to play the Hollywood Bowl, and even more excited to do it with my friends Rodrigo y Gabriela AND a full orchestra!,” he said. “They did a great collaboration with me on my Inferno record and we’ve met several times in Japan talking about how to make this Hollywood Bowl show a once in a lifetime kind of ultra special show. Can not wait.”
Following his performance at the Hollywood Bowl Friedman will return to Japan to perform a full live set at SummerSonic, the country’s largest music festival.
