Gama Bomb Posts New Music Video, “Bring Out The Monster” Online

Irish thrash outfit Gama Bomb have released the video for new single “Bring Out The Monster,” which introduces the band’s new mascot. The fist-pounding track is the second single from the band’s sixth album Speed Between The Lines, out October 12th on AFM Records.

The video takes inspiration from classic movies like Harvey and Donnie Darko, featuring frontman Philly Byrne and the band’s new mascot ‘Snowy’ The Gamabombinable Snowman as his imaginary friend.

“As fans, we love the theatricality of classic metal shows,’ says frontman Philly Byrne. ‘Dio’s dragon, Motorhead’s bomber and of course Eddie – those things made gigs come to life and leap off the stage, and we wanted to bring that back. We take our music seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously and we want our shows to be as much as fun as possible. How do you fight the tide of drab metal? We thought the best solution was to hire a seven foot-tall, alcoholic Yeti to ruin our gigs.”

“Speed Between The Lines’” cover art was created by New York-based artist Jarred Hageman AKA Chrome And Lightning and Rory McGuigan (Villagers) and the album was produced by longtime GAMA BOMB collaborator Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Sylosis).
The digital single’s cover is inspired by vintage paperback novels.

“Speed Between The Lines,” released by AFM Records on October 12th 2018, is the sixth studio album from the band in 16 years. The album will be available as CD, clear yellow gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), turquoise gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), clear/red gatefold and vinyl red/black splatter (ltd. to 100 units) which is exclusively available in the AFM webshop.

Dark Sermon Calling It Quits

Johnny Crowder from Dark Sermon just issued the following statement about the band deciding to call it quits:

“Hey all, J here. My eyes are flooding as I type this, but you deserve to hear it. Dark Sermon has been my life’s work for nearly a decade – an unforgettable whirlwind of sweat, flat tires, and insane tours. In my head, DS would live on forever, but life rarely follows the imaginary paths we paint for it.

“At this point, we have fulfilled our contracts with eOne and Nuclear Blast. This, coupled with a rather unforgiving season of rotten luck, led several members to retire from touring altogether. While I was stubbornly determined to press on, the remaining members decided that now would be a good time to let DS rest.

“Initially, I couldn’t accept it, but now I understand. Since high school, we’ve barely had a moment to tend to anything outside of the band. Looking back, I see how undying dedication to one solitary thing can lead to imbalance.

“Is Dark Sermon done? Unfortunately, that is not up to me. However, I can’t just stop writing music and sharing it with the world. This is why I created my new band, Prison. You can watch our new music video or pre-order our new record if you’d like to support us.

“Although I am still trying to make peace with this situation, Dark Sermon brought immeasurable healing to me and countless others. And for that, I will never, ever forget it – or you. To everyone who has followed my personal journey with mental illness, faith, and sobriety, thank you. Whether you decide to accompany me in this new chapter or not, you’ve already given me more than I could ask for. You saved my life.

“I love each and every one of you. Deeply. Goodbye for now.”
