Sacramento hard rock outfit Misamore Release Video For Bloody Mary
Sacramento based hard-rock trio Misamore have dropped their video for "Bloody Mary" online at https://youtu.be/cQt7PRMCZOs. The track is the new single from Misamore's brand new "Monolith".
"The song 'Bloody Mary' was written a few years before the recording of Misamore's full-length album, "Monolith". The song deals with the destruction of what little innocence we have and how it all fundamentally is the same feeling that sends us in the same direction," commented Misamore's Josh Amolsch. "Originally, the video was planned to be a woman losing her virginity and then giving birth in the snow and bleeding to death, but we thought that might be too graphic and "real" for people. There was also plans for the band to be in the video, playing around burning trash barrels in the snow. But the lyric video seemed more appropriate for a few reasons. Those being that the listeners probably want to understand what the lyrics are saying and the another was to focus on the story of how easy it is to make bad decisions and how quickly they will cause things to crumble."
Sacramento, CA-based power-trio titans Misamore refuse to rest. Misamores' drummer, Cameron Ellis, was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 20 years old which was immediately removed. Despite the struggles, music was always a driving force while he searched for solutions. He is now healthy and stable. Bassist Mike Dragony suffers from celiac disease, a long-term autoimmune disorder primarily affecting the small intestine that occurs in people with acute sensitivity to gluten and other foods that can cause severe abdominal pain. During the making of the album "Horizon" in 2010, Dragony was rushed to the hospital and almost died. While battling through health scares that would cause most people to throw in the towel, Misamore has persevered and continued to create infectious hard rock.
With fourteen years in, a five-song EP, a single and now a full length album to tout, Misamore has proven that it will take more than a pesky thing like a brain tumor or a near death experience from Celiac Disease to slow them down.
Misamore's new offering, “Monolith”, is what Loud & Heavy calls “a top to bottom solid body of work” with many peers in the Sacramento music scene praising the release as an “evolutionary piece” and “Flawless”.
