Bad Brains of a Down
(PR) Bad Brains have confirmed that Shavo Odadjian from System Of A Down will direct the first video off the forthcoming album Build A Nation. Production will be in Portland and also at Sasquatch Festival later this month, where Bad Brains will be performing. It will be documented and a "making of the video" will also be filmed.
"I've been a fan of the Brains ever since I can remember. They are iconic pioneers of punk, not just the music but the attitude. The energy that comes off their stage is like no other. HR's performances have effected not only my band, but almost every heavy band in our era. Another major inspiration is their message of trying to promote righteousness and living the righteous way. I am going to rock this video for the Brains and try to capture their intense energy. It's a big responsibility... I'm honored." says Shavo.
A Bad Brains worldwide tour is in the planning stages, including several major festival appearances both in the USA and Europe. The Sasquatch Festival on May 27 will see both Bad Brains and Beastie Boys take the stage. The following dates are confirmed.
