Dave Arcari premieres Hellbound Train video

Dave Arcari has premiered his video for Hellbound Train with The Blues.

It’s the title track of the his latest EP, released today, ahead of upcoming album Givers & Takers.

Arcari tells The Blues: “I tend to approach writing from the guitar end first – but I was struggling to come up with something that felt different but still sounded like me.

“The general advice to folks with writers’ block is don’t write songs about being on the road. So the first two songs I wrote for the EP are about being on the road!”

He adds of the video: “This is the first time I’ve had a ‘proper’ promo done. Everything before has been DIY. Urbancroft Films got involved because they like my music – they don’t generally do music videos.”

Arcari is currently touring the UK. The Hellbound Train EP is on sale now in CD and digital (opens in new tab) formats, while Givers & Takers will be released in the coming months.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
