Black Lodge Debut “Thoughts” Video, Carmen Electra Cameos


Black Lodge have uploaded their “Thoughts” music video, which you can now watch at the bottom of this post. Among the bands lineup is drummer Raanen Bozzio—son of legendary drummer Terry Bozio. Along with a in-studio performance, the clip features a guest appearance from Carmen Electra.

Recording sessions for the band’s debut album recently finished with a production team that included Lee Miles, Matt Dougherty (co-producer/engineer) and Sean Beaven (mixer). Jeordie White (aka Twiggy Ramirez of Marilyn Manson, etc. fame) co-wrote/produced and performs bass on the album. His involvement comes on the song “XIII“—a tribute to the group’s bassist Ventura XIII, who died in a motorcycle accident. Guitarist Johnny Royal said of that and the forthcoming album:

“There are no words to describe the loss of Ventura as a best friend and bandmate. The only way I could grieve him and move forward was to let my part of writing this album speak the unspeakable through the composition I contributed. During the writing process, I remembered something my friend Chris Goss said to me at Rancho De La Luna…’when you’re in the studio, there’s only enough room for one ego; the ego of the song.’ This album was about just that…killing the ego, serving the music, and as a band searching for something collectively cosmic and timeless.”
