"Excommunicated", the new video from MY RUIN the Los Angeles-based band featuring the husband-and-wife rock duo of vocalist Tairrie B. Murphy and multi-instrumentalist Mick Murphy can be viewed below. According to Tairrie, the clip "was filmed and edited in beautiful HD by Miss Tor Burrows of Notorious Design, who joined us on the road in March for our 'Ghosts And Good Stories' tour of the U.K."Tor has filmed MY RUIN in the past. Her work includes our 2008 videos for 'Me Without You' and 'Slide You The Horn', filmed in Birmingham while on the 'Tell Your God' tour, and 'Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo' filmed on our 'ReligiosiTour'. She is amazingly talented and creative and we can't wait for you to view her latest rock masterpiece." MY RUIN last year recruited bassist Luciano Ferrea (BEGGARS BALL) and drummer Matt LeChevalier as the rhythm section for the group's recent U.K. tour. MY RUIN's latest album, "Ghosts And Good Stories", boasts 13 tracks written and played entirely by Murphy on guitar, bass and drums.
When asked about the theme of the new album in an interview with Devolution magazine, Tairrie said, "I would say that 'Ghosts and Good Stories' is definitely a concept album and one which is quite reflective and apocalyptic on many levels. It didn't necessarily start off that way but it eventually began to write itself into a bit of an intimate portrait of our life as a band in and around the city of Los Angeles. "Over the years religious imagery has played a huge part in my lyrical content and I have often left things open to interpretation but with this record it has gone from being more of a cryptically metaphorical aesthetic to highly confrontational in some instances."
