Last month we brought you word that the gritty, hard-rockin’ Swedes, Crucified Barbara were on their way with a new album, In the Red, and at the time they’d just dropped the album’s first single, “To Kill a Man.”
Today, the band has dropped the musicfor that track. If you weren’t sure about the song’s meaning before, the video makes it pretty damn clear. And if you’re still having trouble figuring it out, the band has said:
One fifth of all the world’s women have been raped or assaulted in their lifetime. The dark statistics became the basis for the song ‘To Kill a Man’ and our most important message of the video. The production company 11Frames has captured our vision perfectly, and we are proud that we take the opportunity lifting heavy topics such as violence and sexism with a really heavy hardvideo.
Crucified Barbara is currently putting the finishing touches on its Despotz debut, which was recorded at Studio Music A Matic, Gothenburg with producer, Chips Kiesby, and engineer, Henryk Lip, and follows 2012’s acclaimed, The Midnight Chase.
In the Red is due for release on August 20th.
Let us know what you think of the song and the video.
