Monroe issues Goin’ Down With The Ship promo

Michael Monroe has released a video for his track Goin’ Down With The Ship.

It features on the former Hanoi Rocks frontman’s 10th solo album Blackout States, which was released last year via Spinefarm.

Monroe says: “The song is not necessarily about sailing or seamanship as such – it’s basically about us getting on the tour bus and hitting the road with our band.

“Ville Juurikkala, who shot the videos for Ballad Of The Lower East Side, Stained Glass Heart and Old King’s Road, has done this new one, too. It was pretty easy to make and includes some footage shot by the band while we were on tour.

“I think the video has a good vibe and we’re all happy with the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy it.”

Monroe is currently on tour across the US and returns to Europe next month. He’ll also play a set at the TeamRock-sponsored Stone Free festival which will take place at London’s O2 Arena on June 18 and 19.
