) released single,“Oh, Bastard” back in November 2013 and now have added a lyric video to accompany the track’s bouncy, melodic bass lines, telling the story of a boy born to parents with other priorities and the ultimate fates of anyone involved. The video (http://youtu.be/fF9qJISqOrY
) was created by Bruce James Bale of DEFT.
The song, though independent of an album, showcases the emergence of Flannel Mouth’s ability to write a hard-hitting single whilst staying true to their unique brand of theatric rock, displayed on 2012’s Pull in Your Horns.
Singer Luke Myers comments,
“We wanted to provide a visual element to our music on a format we haven’t reached just yet, plus emphasize the importance of the story entwined in the music. It’s certainly an integral aspect of our writing style, and will continue to be in every future release, as well. If nothing else, we wanted to give a man with a terrific mustache a moment in the light.“
About The Band
The rustic regions of the Tallgrass Prairies hold a myriad of veiled gems, and budding with roots along the Illinois River is Flannel Mouth, a four-piece rock ensemble with high aims in sight. Hailing from Glasford, a town only a thousand strong, Flannel Mouth has emerged as a vengeful small town boy with big city dreams, evidenced by their debut release, “Pull in Your Horns,” via SwitchBitch Records.
Old-timey for “sharptalker” or “one having a way with words,” Flannel Mouth holds true to definition with searing lyrics still warm from the firing hammers of frontman Luke Myers, who croons of audacious malcontent and paints vicious imagery unto his listeners. His blunt-yet-elaborate rhythms are melodized by Zachary Hartman, intricately woven throughout arrangements characterized by the bouncy bass lines of Ryan Batalon, and the pointed stylings of Tyler Jamsa on drums.
The near future holds exciting and hard work for the boys of Flannel Mouth, and even if the apocalypse truly is nigh, expect the music to cut right through.
