Naam Premiere “The Starchild” Music Video

Naam have premiered their new music video for their sprawling 9 minute track “The Starchild” below via Noisey. The clip was shot with director Zev Deans with the song appearing on the groups latest EP, “The Ballad Of The Starchild“.

Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland recently spoke with regarding the bands next album (the so-called “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants“;) and the impending new full-length release from his Black Light Burns project.

Speaking on the new Bizkit release, he revealed that the outfit have fourteen songs in various stages of completion. When asked about the direction, he stated:

“We’re going two different directions right now. One direction is very heavy like our last album Gold Cobra, but with me pushing the riffs further than they were before. But we’re also working on hip-hop club tracks that have guitar and Fred on them. We’re coming from two very different places on this and right now they’re starting to cross over into each other, which is exciting. We don’t want to make Gold Cobra II.”

Producer DetaiL has been overseeing the sessions for the album, which currently doesn’t have a release date attached to it. However, the group do intend to launch a major U.S. tour in support of it this October with Borland‘s Black Light Burns opening.

Some readers may recall that they were approaching Norma Jean as a potential support act for the trek. More on the album, Black Light Burns and Limp Bizkit‘s M.I.A. single with labelmate Lil Wayne can be found at the above-mentioned link.

Gallows proved they aren’t afraid to get dirty in a newly-posted intimate live video. The clip is taken from the bands set at the “2000 Trees Festival” earlier this month in Gloucestershire, England. It finds band frontman Wade MacNeil taking to the stage covered in mud.

Gallows will release their brand new self-titled album in North America on September 11th via Bridge 9.
