Blacktop Mojo debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the video for its new single ‘Prodigal‘ on Tuesday.  The song is taken from the band’s most recent full-length studio recording, Burn The Ships (2017).  Musically speaking, the song presents a power ballad style composition that is familiar to a wide range of listeners.

In regards to its lyrical content, front man Matt James explained in an interview that the song centers, lyrically, on that drive that everyone has to get out and explore the world.

“We had fun making this video with some of our good friends from our hometown acting out the main parts,” James said.  “We felt like the father-son dynamic in the video  really reflected the song’s theme.  The song is sort of autobiographical.  It’s about the experience of growing up in a small town and always talking about ‘getting out’ one day.  No matter where or how far you go, though, you always have a little bit of where you came from that you take with you.”

‘Prodigal’ is just the latest single that the band has released from Burn The Ships.  The album has also produced the singles ‘Where The Wind Blows,’ ‘Underneath‘ and ‘Dream On‘ (Aerosmith cover).  Burn The Ships is streaming online now here.  The album’s full track listing is noted below.

Blacktop Mojo Announces PledgeMusic Campaign To Fund Third Album

Courtesy: TAG Publicity

Blacktop Mojo is working on its new album, and is asking for fans’ help finishing the record.

The band recently launched a PledgeMusic campaign to fund the record’s creation.  The campaign allows fans to order various items from the band, such as signed vinyl test pressings of the band’s as yet untitled album, signed CD bundle, clay shooting with the band, studio listening party and private show with guest list control in return for contributing to the record’s creation.

The band noted in its discussions that “due to the high cost of travel for us to get overseas, we’re going to have to limit the private shows to the U.S. only.”

Each item, listed here, is a different price.  According to the band all of the money spent by fans goes toward the record’s creation.

“As independent artists, everything we do is fan-funded,” the band said in a written statement.  “We don’t have a record label loaning us a ton of money to make a record.  With that comes some financial pitfalls, but it also means nobody tells us how to make music for you guys, and we think that’s pretty cool.”

As of Sept. 23, the band has reached 42 percent of its PledgeMusic Goal with 49 days left to meet that goal.  Items are available only while they last.
