Pretoria, South Africa: the stoner rock collective Ruff Majik returns with another teaser from its upcoming album The Devil’s Cattle; today with the song and music video titled ‘Lead Pills and Thrills’.
Lead Pills and Thrills: third single
Although it’s the third single from the upcoming album, ‘Lead Pills and Thrills’ is the first one to feature long-time producer and new member Evert Snyman plus founding member Johni Holiday front-and-center on vocal duties. It’s also first time the band experimented with piano driven rock ‘n roll.
Lyrically, the song deals with crippling addiction to both lost love and alcohol.
“Jimmy (bassist) and I are both out in the wasteland, being pursued by zombies. Evert has been taken hostage by a zombie horde to be the personal piano man for their bar – and we set out to rescue him. Once there, we discover we’ve fallen right into a clumsily planned trap.” ~ Johni Holiday (guitar/vocals, Ruff Majik)
‘Lead Pills and Thrills’ was filmed by Tiger & Lilly Productions.
The Devil’s Cattle: out on 30 October
And the breadcrumb trail of singles culminates with this latest offering before the grand finale of the full work, The Devil’s Cattle, arrives on 30 October. If your appetite is not sufficiently whet from ‘Lead Pills and Thrills’, also check out ‘All You Need Is Speed‘ and ‘Who Keeps Score‘.
