THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have unleashed their brand new music video, “Goat of Departure.”The video, directed by Ben Mayer, was filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit, MI last month. In typical TBDM fashion, the video is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat. Watch “Goat of Departure” now at metalblade.com/bdm.
Trevor Strnad adds: “It’s our pleasure to release our latest exercise in music video stupidity to you all at long last… We’d like to thank Guiness the Goat for penciling us in and all of the rabid TBDM fans for getting wild with us. Press the play button and embrace the glory of the goat!”
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s new album, “Everblack,” debuted at #32 on the Billboard Top 200! The album also landed at #3 on the Billboard Current Hard Music Albums chart (behind Black Sabbath and Queens of the Stone Age). Additional chart debuts include #3 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums, #9 on the Billboard Independent Albums, and #30 on the Hits Albums Chart. Additionally, the album peaked at #15 on the iTunes album chart, and #2 on the iTunes Metal chart, second only to living legends Black Sabbath.
The cover art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller with Weta Workshop(nickkellerart.com), whose recent projects include: The Hobbit, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me,a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.
