DEATH ANGEL's video for "Dethroned", a track off their latest album, "Killing Season", will debut online on Thursday, April 17 on Headbanger's Blog and on-air on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" this Saturday, April 19 at 11 p.m. EST / 8 p.m. PST.
Director/producer Robert Sexton had this to say about his ties to DEATH ANGEL and how the gig practically landed in his lap: "I'm excited about this video and I think D.A. fans are going to go nuts for it. It's a great song and there are a lot of layers to the story and to the visuals. There's something new to see every time you watch it, and DEATH ANGEL's performance decimates. My band GENOCIDE opened for DEATH ANGEL at an all-ages show in a Masonic Hall in Grand Haven, Michigan in the late '80s. Years later, I ran into Mark Osegueda at an absinthe party at Kirk Hammett's house in San Francisco. Mark informed me that DEATH ANGEL were doing their new album, and I asked to be put in the mix to direct the video. Keep your eyes open for the unclean' edit that's bound to surface somewhere and keep watching the skies.
DEATH ANGEL will launch a North American co-headlining "In Thrash We Trust" tour with GOD FORBID on May 1 in Michigan with support coming from SOILENT GREEN and LIGHT THIS CITY. Commented on the band's first U.S. tour since 1990, guitarist Rob Cavestany says, "We couldn't be more stoked! 'In Thrash We Trust' will be our first full-blown tour since we hit the road for 'Act III' eighteen years ago and we are gonna bring it! 'Killing Season' has begun!!!
