Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons have shared a studio video showing them working on their debut album.
The band, led by former Motorhead guitarist Campbell, will launch The Age Of Absurdity on January 26 via Nuclear Blast.
The new video shows the band being put through their paces as they lay down the album tracks at Rockfield Studios and Longwave Studios in Wales.
Campbell says: “I am really excited for the fans to hear our debut record. Every part of the process was done in Wales, from the writing, to the recording and even the artwork!
“The album title The Age Of Absurdity was inspired by the crazy world we live in today. The world to me seems to be a bit of a theatre show, so the album artwork idea just seemed to fit so well with the whole concept and album title.”
The CD edition of the album, which is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab), comes with a cover of Silver Machine featuring Hawkwind’s Dave Brock. See the cover art and tracklist below, along with the lyric video for the single Ringleader.
Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons will play a run of live shows in February and March across Europe.
