Norwegian stonerpunks Bokassa have shared a video for a brand new track.
Hellbilly Handfishin’ was produced by Blood Command’s Yngve Andersen and marks the band’s first new music since their 2017 debut album, ‘Divide & Conquer’. The track is available digitally everywhere through the trio’s new label Loyal Blood Records right now.
The video, meanwhile, sees the the band take to the street of rural Norway in a rental car en route to playing shows. Speaking about the song and its accompanying clip, vocalist and guitarist Jørn Kaarstad said:
“The song is a tongue in cheek ode to slackers so we decided to make a video in that spirit, attaching a GoPro to the dashboard and whilst we sang along with the track. While we mainly dabble in misanthropic songs about the state of the world, cults and whatnot, we decided to just make a nihilistic party song you can sing along to on a Friday night while handfishin’ with your best friends while chugging some cheap Famous Grouse mixed with Pepsi Max. Because, why not?”
Bokassa formed around four years ago and released their first EP, ‘War On Everything’, in 2015, while last year’s ‘Divide & Conquer’ perked up the ears of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, who named them his “favourite new band”. They recently made their UK live debut with a show at London’s Boston Music Room.
