GAMA BOMB Release Lyric Video For New Single ‘666teen’
Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have released a face-melting animated lyric video for new single ‘666teen’.
The blistering track is the first single from the band’s sixth album Speed Between The Lines, out October 12th on AFM Records. The album’s retro cover art is by New York-based artist Jarred Hageman AKA Chrome And Lightning and Rory McGuigan (Villagers), and the video also features scenes from 1950s public information movies. The album was produced by longtime GAMA BOMB collaborator Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Sylosis).
“The title just popped into my head one night,” explains singer Philly Byrne. “I’d been listening to a lot of 50s rock and doo-wop, songs like Sixteen Candles and Sweet Little Sixteen, and it just kinda morphed into this idea: what if somebody wrote a Satanic teen rebellion song?” Bassist Joe McGuigan on Speed Between The Lines: “Our aim with this record was keep refining the GAMA BOMB thrash formula. It’s got faster and more punky riffing, battling axes and catchy, memorable choruses from Philly, who’s back with the Halford / Belladona notes after injuring his voice a few years back.”
The digital single’s cover is inspired by vintage paperback novels, featuring art from James Blish’s horror classic Black Easter.
