Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster: Terrifying Music Video Premiered
Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster are pleased to announce the release of a terrifying new music video for "Open Your Eyes," starring the one and only Danny Trejo. The video, which is stylized as a short film, premiered at Maylene frontman Dallas Taylor says, "We've always been huge fans of Danny Trejo. We were on the same flight a few years ago but I didn't get a chance to meet him. Ever since then, I've wanted him to be in one of our videos. Never in a million years did I think it would happen, so this is really special for us." As it turns out, video director Scott Hansen had worked with Trejo before and was able to make it happen. The video was shot in one day in Los Angeles, and stars Trejo as a sadistic mechanic. The hard rock innovators are gearing up for a nationwide headlining tour in support of their acclaimed new album IV, out now via Ferret Music. The 4-week trek will kick off January 25 in New Orleans and take the band to both coasts, with support from Lionize. See below for those full details. Produced by Brian Virtue (Jane's Addiction, Deftones, Audioslave), IV is a departure from Maylene's previous albums, shining a spotlight on the celebrated band's sleek songcraft, virtuosic prowess and depth of musical identity. The primal-scream therapy of underground star frontman Dallas Taylor takes on a much more multidimensional sense of atmosphere and texture on the record, finding the perfect balance of heavy-meets-euphoric while the band's strong, fluid rock features big riffs, shifting tempos and a spot-on sense of balance. The new saga of Maylene and The Sons Of Disaster's compelling concept has been called "catchy, southern-infused hard rock" by MetalSucks and the band's "most mature and unadulterated album" by Prefix. On the record, the band continues its focused conceptual and lyrical bent which plots Maylene as renegade outlaws from a 1920's gangster / prohibition era real-life crime family. The record's gritty musical shootouts are filled with intricate guitar riffing and whiskey drenched grooves, while the lyrics take your imagination back to a time when the exploits of gangs of criminals gripped the American people and press. 01/25 - New Orleans, LA - Siberia 01/26 - Houston, TX - Fitzgerald's 01/27 - Lubbock, TX - Jake's Sports Caf 01/28 - San Antonio, TX - The Korova Basement 01/30 - Albuquerque, NM - Launchpad 01/31 - Tempe, AZ - Red Owl 02/01 - Tucson, AZ - Skrappy's 02/02 - Anaheim, CA - Chain Reaction 02/03 - San Diego, CA - Soma Sidestage 02/04 - San Francisco, CA - Three Parkside 02/06 - Portland, OR - Hawthorne Theater 02/07 - Seattle, WA - El Corazon 02/09 - Ogden, UT - Mojos Gallery 02/10 - Denver, CO - Marquis Theatre 02/11 - Colorado Springs, CO - The Black Sheep 02/13 - Kansas City, MO - The Riot Room 02/14 - St. Louis, MO - The Firebird 02/15 - Chicago, IL - Beat Kitchen 02/16 - Pontiac, MI - Pike Room at Crofoot 02/17 - Columbus, OH - The Basement 02/18 - Buffalo, NY - Broadway Jones 02/19 - Erie, PA - The Crooked I 02/21 - Worcester, MA - The Palladium (Upstairs) 02/22 - Brooklyn, NY - Knitting Factory 02/24 - Hartford, CT - Webster Underground 02/26 - Wilmington, NC - The Soapbox
