Stoner punks Bokassa have today shared the official video for their latest single, veritable earworm “Captain Cold One”. The track is from their forthcoming album, “Crimson Riders”, set for release on June 21st, 2019.

Bokassa frontman Jørn comments: “The video for "Captain Cold One" takes place after the world takes a collective breath, having just avoided destruction, as is tradition in the universe they live in. A universe not unlike our own I might add. Having come so close to death, people react in different ways - we see an "end of the world party" and that the cult leader from our "Mouthbreathers Inc." video is still on the loose. Will he get captured by vigilantes or will he, yet again, escape? Watch it and find out!”...

The video was shot in Manchester, England by Video Ink, in the same locale as filming for Captain America, Sherlock Holmes, and Peaky Blinders, and where Bokassa shot the video for previous single, “Mouthbreathers Inc.”.

Bokassa fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk. Their 2017 debut album, “Divide & Conquer” was lauded by critics across the globe. Metal Hammer UK hailed it as one of the best debuts of 2017, describing them as “intense, unpretentiously creative, and relentlessly rhythmic”.

“Crimson Riders” was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian “Big Bass” Gardener. The record is set for a 21st June release on CD, vinyl, and digital formats.

Bokassa enthuse: “We are very excited to release "Crimson Riders". Nine songs which revolve around everything from cults, religion, and border patrols to beer-drinking anti-heroes and immortal space pirates! Sonically, the album gives the listener everything from classic stoner-punk tracks, groovy desert songs, and high speed thrash metal, to hardcore-oriented sing-a-longs. This time we also played around with both cellos and saxophone in the studio so expect a few curve-balls here and there”.

In early 2018, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich played Bokassa on his radio show, “It’s Electric”, calling them “insanely fucking cool” and his “favourite new band”. Fast forward to 2019, and Bokassa are set to hit the road with Metallica this summer, declaring, “We are extremely excited to support the legendary Metallica alongside Ghost - over 25 concerts in Europe. We are an underground rock band from Norway, so I don’t think we can even imagine how big and awesome this is going to be, but we are insanely excited for this opportunity!”...
