Video Nasties rise again with new single ‘Draw The Shades’

Following the release of their debut album ‘Dominion’ on APF Records last year,  Video Nasties are back with another slab of moral-panic inducing heaviness – the addiction inspired single ‘Draw The Shades’

With ‘Dominion’ selling out on vinyl, APF Records are repressing the album for release on 7th May. Limited to only 300 copies (150 Flaxen Lust / 150 Suspirium Pink), the reissue will include ‘Draw The Shades’ on a 70s retro style Flexi-disc. Bassist Rick Owen comments,‘We’re extremely excited about Draw The Shades. It’s our first single since the release of Dominion and we feel it picks up right where They Rise left off so it makes a perfect companion piece for the repress of the album. We decided to go down the same path with recording it ourselves, to make sure we really nailed the early 90s sound that we felt we captured so well with Dominion. At its crux, the song is about addiction. Whether that is blood, drugs or love… There is a need that has to be sated. ‘

Hailing from Manchester, UK, Barbarian Hermit released their most recent album ‘Solitude and Savagery’ in 2018 on APF Records. Playing a heady mix of downtuned, fuzz-laden guitars they kicked out some of the raunchiest riffs in rock over elephantine grooves, the band created a sound that is as irresistibly catchy as it is crushingly heavy.
