Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: Exclusive Video
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster has spent the last few weeks criss-crossing North America in support of their new album, 'IV.' The record features one slithery guitar riff after the other and is the best thing the Alabama-based band has ever put down on tape.
"As humans, we play things so safe and everything "makes sense" or is "figured out" and is how it's supposed to be," says vocalist Dallas Taylor of the album "I hope it will make people question their lives and how they do things, and make people realize what they have. It is definitely a new band now with a new drive. This is the most serious thing we've ever done and the most grown-up record I've ever made in my life. I think it will surprise a lot of people who were into Maylene before. It is a very dark record, but it's the most truthful and heartfelt thing I have done in my life."
In this Noisecreep video exclusive, we join Maylene and the Sons of Disaster out on the road at the Harrisonburg, Va. stop of their current tour. Check out the video below for some parking lot hijinks and live footage from their gig at The Blue Nile on Nov. 22.
