Bury your bible and quench your thirst! “Six Feet Under” is the first single from the new album “Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class” by Swedish-Celtic folk rock extraordinaires Finnegan’s Hell. The album, released by Wild Kingdom Records, is a tribute to the thirsty Irish poets Oscar Wilde and Shane MacGowan, as well as Sweden’s most notorious bard, Carl Michael Bellman.
– This album is our most ambitious one so far, and I dare say it sets a new standard within the Celtic punk genre, which for years has been in need of revitalization. “Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class” is a witty and intelligent album and, at the same time, full of that raw energy which makes you wanna knock back a dozen pints and go stagediving headfirst. If Oscar Wilde was alive today he would have loved hearing this album, says Pabs Finnegan, the band’s lead vocalist.
When Finnegan’s Hell formed in 2010, the band made a vow to only sing about three things: life, death and alcohol. On their third album they still stay true to that concept. The single “Six Feet Under” actually deals with all three elements. The video for the song was directed by Swedish filmmaker Michael Ek, who got his inspiration from Jim Jarmusch’s zombie film “The Dead Don’t Die”. Both the video and the song should be seen as a metaphor for the next to impossible struggle trying to quit a lifelong bad habit.
