Norwegian hard rock supergroup Audrey Horne release student-produced music video for »Break Out« taken from their latest full-length album, »Devil’s Bell«, out on April 22nd, 2022 via Napalm Records.

To celebrate their brand new record in style, Audrey Horne premiered a new music video for the track »Break Out«, but chose a unique, creative way to bring it to life. As guitarist Arve Isdal works at a school teaching music production, the band invited a group of the school’s talented film students to create the track’s amazing music video – supporting arts education and the future of rock! The clip perfectly matches the song – a true hard rocking anthem.

Arve says about the new video and its making-of: “The film students at a school I work for, Noroff Fagskole, had an assignment to make music videos. I thought it would be a good idea for them to try to make a video for Audrey Horne. Unfortunately we didn‘t have time to actually be present in the video, so we had to send the infamous doll versions of ourselves to star in it.

The students did a great job and the video turned out very funny and looks professional, so we wanted to share it with you all. None of the dolls were harmed in the making of this video (as far as we know).”

April 22, 2022 will see Bergen-based heavy rock outfit, Audrey Horne, release their much awaited new album, entitled »Devil’s Bell«. Four years after their critically acclaimed »Blackout« record, the band’s seventh studio album will drop on April 22, 2022 via Napalm Records!

As with every Audrey Horne album, there are no duds or misfires as the songs flow together seamlessly, making »Devil’s Bell« a delight to play from the first note straight to the end. Devil’s Bell offers nine fist-pumping songs that will shake concert venues worldwide. Frontman Toschie once again proves that he has one of the most charismatic and energetic voices in rock, and the kinetic guitar-work of Ice Dale (Enslaved) and Thomas Tofthagen (ex-Sahg) underlines an outstanding genre-warp of 70s and 80s rock via NWOBHM, keeping the music rocking and the listener locked in. The band is tight, the music is festive, and the songs stick upon first listen – that’s how a modern hard rock album should sound!

What started back in 2002 soon took the Norwegians and their expertly executed, riff-soaked fury all the way to the top of the rock scene.

Toschie adds: “20 years into our career, we are proud to say we have made probably our strongest album so far. It was made during a time of lockdown and isolation, so it became a very focused album, and an album on our own terms, even more than previously. It is 100% homegrown as we recorded it ourselves, Arve produced it and our long time ‘secret’ member Herbrand Larsen mixed it.”

Toschie mentions that, in general, the new album is heavier and darker than the band’s previous records: “This goes for both the music and the lyrics. The song structures are a bit more complex and this also leads to longer songs in general. We have included an instrumental song on the album that really focuses on the chemistry of the band and the dynamic of us playing together. We wanted the album to have the organic feeling from the 70s and 80s records we all grew up listening to but with a more modern sound to it. We wanted a good balance between more produced songs and some songs with a more live feel to them without too many layers and overdubs. We are really happy with the way the whole album turned out and we feel that we kept the essence of the Audrey Horne but with a few new flavors added. Hope you’ll have as much fun listening to it as we had making it!”
