Los Angeles’ modern rockers BUDDERSIDE return four years after being signed to Motörhead Music by the late Motörhead vocalist Lemmy Kilmister to follow-up their 2016 self-titled debut with a reinvigorated lineup and a scorching new sophomore effort, SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE., scheduled for release on March 26 via Motörhead Music / Silver Lining Music. BUDDERSIDE has unveiled the album debut single ‘Zen’ alongside its engaging and thrill-inducing music video which was filmed at various locations in Tokyo, Japan.
“We went all the way to Tokyo to bring an authentic experience to our fans,” shares BUDDERSIDE vocalist/founder PATRICK STONE. “When I think of Zen, I imagine monks, bonsai trees, waterfalls, and temples. While the song was written in a complete state of Zen, the video finds us being seduced by desire and lured into a den of evil, from which there is no escape. The nightmare of Kuchisake-onna, Kappa, Rokurokubi and Gashadokuro come to life before your very eyes. It reaches out to those who are unable to find Zen due to the demons that chase us always getting in the way and shows how we must find a way to escape them in order to find inner peace.”
SPIRITUAL VIOLENCE, a 10-track inferno with blaring riffs, crushing blast beats and catchy vocal melodies, is geared to set listeners into a frenzy across the globe. The album was recorded with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Godsmack, Papa Roach) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Howie Weinberg(Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage). It also includes guest features by Carla Harvey(Butcher Babies), Phil Campbell (Motörhead) and the Musyca Children’s Choir
BUDDERSIDE was formed by STONE following stints with Adler’s Appetite as well as working as a roadie for Lemmy/Motörhead. His own project was supported by Lemmy who personally signed him to Motörhead Music and kickstarted the band’s career. The band immediately hit the road with their infectious live show and appeared on tours alongside Motörhead, Slayer, Anthrax and L.A.
