Famous Underground Featuring Slik Toxik Member Debut “Dead Weight” Video
July 4, 2013
Canadian hard rockers Famous Underground, featuring former Slik Toxik singer Nicholas Walsh, have released a new video for the track “Dead Weight”. The song is featured on the band’s new self-titled debut album out now via Dust On The Tracks Records.
The new single “Dead Weight” is a melodic romp that takes you on a trip with an anthemic message that pertains to everyone. Sonically this represents the light and shade that is Famous Underground, the song is a wakeup call for people to realize that they have the power to help create a more positive world. The official epic concept video to support the single “Dead Weight” takes you on a journey through evolution with beauty and destruction showing the realities and changes from Mother Earth’s point of view.
Consisting of Nicholas Walsh (vocals/guitars), Laurie-Anne Green (bass/vocals), Rick Corvese (guitars), Darren Boyd (guitars), and Desche Sparboom (drums), Famous Underground’s sound and music is edgy, melodic and hooky bringing a paradigm shift to the arena of rock. It’s been said, that they have created something fresh and exciting in an otherwise stagnated genre. With the conclusion that no-one has definitive comparisons, Carl Begai writer with elite hard rock/metal magazine BW&BK describes the new recording as “it’s a darker if-Metallica-were-Guns N’ Roses direction with this brand new album.”
Famous Underground’s self-titled studio release was produced by Nick Walsh, and mixed by Darius Szczepaniak (The Black Crowes, Sacrifice) at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto. The new recording takes Walsh’s writing to a more defined state where the lyrics delve more into the complexities of the real world.
These musicians have independently garnered critical acclaim supporting such acts as Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Kid Rock, Black Sabbath, Billy Talent, Yngwie Malmsteen, April Wine and many other international acts.
