"Respect Resistance", the new video from WESTFIELD MASSACRE, the Los Angeles-based band featuring former DIVINE HERESY and SNOT singer Tommy Vext, can be seen below. The clip features footage from WESTFIELD MASSACRE's summer 2016 tour with SEVENDUST and TRIVIUM, and sees Vext joined by lead guitarist Ira Black (METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN), guitarist Stephen Brewer, bassist Erik Tisinger (OTEP) and drummer Dio Britto. This is Black's first video with the band."Respect Resistance" is taken from WESTFIELD MASSACRE's self-titled debut album, which was released on April 29 via Urban Yeti Records. The CD was recorded at Echelon Studios with producer Joseph McQueen. WESTFIELD MASSACRE has started pre-production on its sophomore album, tentatively due in the spring. The band recently finished its contract with Urban Yeti and announced a fan-funded Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to record and produce the record. Vext said: "In good faith, the success of this campaign will be a further testament to the true power of the artist-fan relationship. In an industry that has been broken through greed and false idols, our community will prove there is still an audience for artists that treat their fans like friends and family rather than just dollar signs." Regarding WESTFIELD MASSACRE's musical direction, Vext said: "There's definitely a traditional American metal vibe, but we blend power metal, melodic death metal, metalcore all together to get an original flavor to our sound."
