THE DEVIL RIDES OUT WITH NEW VIDEO FOR ‘BROKEN WHITE LINE’

Western Australian sludge demons THE DEVIL RIDES OUT have released a new video for the track ‘Broken White Line’ from their Impedance Records release ‘The Heart & The Crown’.

The genesis of the clip came about when a member of the band won a beat up old VHS copy of the 1970’s Australian biker flick ‘Cosy Cool’ at a local cult video night. Coming across this vintage grindhouse obscurity felt like destiny somehow and the band set about scouring the internet in search of the filmmakers – not easy  some 35 years later. They eventually managed to track down Gary Young, the director/star of the film, who was initially reluctant to licence the film for a video clip but was won over when he received a copy of the song.
The resulting video is an affectionately grimey tribute to a bygone drive-in era of “ozploitation” cinema, backed by a high-octane soundtrack courtesy of The Devil . Among other things it features a cameo appearance from the Commanchero Motorcycle Club – many of whom would end up either deceased, injured or in prison several years later in the wake of the infamous Milperra Massacre.
The Devil Rides Out are currently holed up over the southern summer, writing material for album #2, set for release in the second half of 2012. They support DEAD MEADOW (US) and PINK MOUNTAINTOPS in Perth on Saturday April 7th at The Bakery.
