RAUNCHY: New Video Interview, Performance Footage

Loud TV conducted an interview with drummer Morten Toft Hansen of Danish modern metallers RAUNCHY during the band's current European tour with SYBREED and THREAT SIGNAL. The 21-minute clip, which includes performance footage, can be viewed below.

As previously reported, regular RAUNCHY vocalist Kasper Thomsen was forced to sit out the band's current trek "for family and personal reasons." His temporary replacement is Travis Neal from DIVINE HERESY. The tour kicked off on November 13 in Bournemouth, U.K.

"A Discord Electric", the new album from RAUNCHY, was released through Lifeforce Records on September 20 in Denmark; October 8 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland; October 11 in the rest of Europe; and on October 12 in the U.S.

"A Discord Electric" track listing:

01. Dim the Lights and Run
02. Rumors of Worship
03. Blueprints For Lost Sounds
05. Street Emperor
06. Shake Your Grave
07. Tiger Crown
08. Big Truth
09. The Great Depression
10. The Yeah Thing
11. Ire Vampire
12. Gunslingers and Tombstones

With uncompromising old-school thrash rhythms and potent electro-sounds, combining the hymns of modernity and tradition, "A Discord Electric" is the perfect metal anthem to the young and hopeless raging in a metropolis or in a redneck town all over the world.

Produced once again by longtime friend Jacob Hansen, "A Discord Electric", delivers 12 songs of pure ecstasy and genre-defining heavy metal music.

Commented Thomsen: "This is by far the most experimental, the most challenging, and the most interesting album we have come up with since the beginning of the band . . . Every member of [RAUNCHY] has had the freedom to take things to the limits, above and beyond, and believe me, boundaries are transparent this time around, we're going totally apeshit, and you're definitely in for some big surprises with some cool guest performances by our friends in DUNÉ on the song 'Big Truth', among other exciting things."
