Flotsam And Jetsam premiere Life Is A Mess video

Flotsam And Jetsam

Flotsam And Jetsam are premiering a video for Life Is A Mess.

It features on the band’s self-titled album issued recently via AFM Records.

The Phoenix group’s 12th studio effort and first since 2012’s Ugly Noise was previewed with the track Iron Maiden.

Bassist Michael Spencer explained the band’s decision to self-title the release 30 years after issuing their 1986 debut Doomsday For The Deceiver.

Spencer told Metal Invader: “When we started talking through song titles to see if there was a lyric theme, we felt there really wasn’t anything that tied the songs together when it came to a theme. But, the one thing that did tie the songs together was the new entity of Flotsam that we now are, with Steve Conley, myself, and Jason Bittner now in the band.”

“We were all wanting to get back to more of the old school Flotsam thrash sound, since that’s where the band was when I left them in 1987. We looked at the self-titled aspect as being the start of the incarnation of the band that was always looking back on the history of the band’s sound.”

Flotsam And Jetsam will launch live dates in support of the album in August before teaming up in September for the Europe Under Attack tour with Destruction, Enforcer and Nervosa.
