Gotthard Debut “Yippie Aye Yay” Video

July 15, 2013

Swiss hard rock legends Gotthard proudly present the video clip for their new single “Yippie Aye Yay”, taken from their latest platinum-certified studio album ‘Firebirth’ that was released via Nuclear Blast in June of 2012.

The clip — produced by the band, directed by frontman Nic Maeder, filmed by his father Hugo Maeder and edited by his brother Sebastian Maeder — was shot in the band’s home town Lugano and features the Burlesque dancers “Poison Ladies” as well as three members of Swiss bagpipe outfit “Wild Boar Clan of Loch Lucerne”.

‘Firebirth’ was Gotthard’s first studio album since the tragic death of the legendary frontman Steve Lee in a traffic accident in the autumn of 2010, and the first step in a new and much anticipated chapter for the band with new singer Nic Maeder. Sleaze Roxx said there was “a comforting type of sameness to Firebirth, with no dabbling in anything out of their norm, and I think Steve Lee would be proud of this effort.”

At the moment Gotthard are fervently writing songs for the new album, planned to be released in early 2014.
