All of the reasons that the band are so brilliant in one place.
BOKASSA are the sort of band that focus on having a lovely time as much as writing the best music.
And the band luckily know how to do both at the same time.
That's shown off wonderfully in the video for their new track 'Burn it All (P.T.S.D.E.A.D)'.
First off, the song is excellent, with thick riffs, huge singalongs and the most addictive of hooks clawing for your attention. And then you have the video which finds the band being viewed through a very dark and occult lens by a nosy explorer. But the commitment to the cause, of making a music video that lingers on the mind, is the best part of it all. And it's a credit to the band for going the extra mile to make it a reality.
The band had this to say about the whole affair:
"'Burn It All' is just a great song in our opinion. A perfect up-tempo Bokassa track. Everything from the stoney lead riff, the melodic verses and choruses to the metal riffage in the bridge makes this song pop. One of our favourites on the record. And it probably includes our coolest solo yet. The video was really fun to shoot as well, although we wouldn’t recommend dressing in corpse paint with fake blood when it’s 30 degrees and there are a hell of a lot of mosquitos around!"
Here we go:
The track is taken from the band's upcoming album 'Molotov Rocktail' which is set for release on September 03 via Napalm Records.
