The official music video for "Thunder Mouth", the new single from EMMURE, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest studio album, "Hindsight", which was released digitally on June 26 via Sharptone Records. Physical copies are being made available today (Friday, July 24).
Producer Frankie Nasso states about the video: "We wanted to create a world that closely reflects the themes and layers of the EMMURE mythology — from gritty underground street culture to otherworldly, nightmarish possibilities.
"Frankie Palmeri is the perfect anime antihero, a complex character who deals with real emotions in a mind-bending universe where anything can happen.
"We had so much fun creating this manga-inspired video with talented artists from four different countries, and we hope to expand this story into a continuing series of animated projects in the future."
"Hindsight" continues the creative partnership between the band's singer (and sole remaining original member) Frankie Palmeri and whirlwind guitarist Joshua Travis, who injected fresh energy into 2017's "Look at Yourself". It reunites the band with producer WZRD BLD, a.k.a. Drew Fulk (DANCE GAVIN DANCE, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, BAD WOLVES). But where its predecessor viciously fought through suicidal ideation, feelings of hopelessness, and failure, "Hindsight" is somehow more savage and refined.
EMMURE's confrontational spirit and irresistible hooks won them fans on Rockstar Mayhem, Warped Tour, Knotfest, countless festivals, and on tour with a diverse range of bands that includes FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, AS I LAY DYING, and co-headliners WHITECHAPEL. Across eight albums — like genre classics "Speaker Of The Dead" (2011) and "Eternal Enemies" (2014) — EMMURE battled their way into the extreme music scene like uninvited but necessary guests.
EMMURE's moniker references "immurement," a particularly brutal form of execution where a person was trapped behind walls and simply left to die.
