Hangman’s Chair ink a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records; premiere a music video for the new single »Cold & Distant«
Paris, France based sludge/doom metal band Hangman’s Chair ink a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records.
Hangman’s Chair also premiere a music video for the new single »Cold & Distant« featuring French actress Béatrice Dalle. Video was directed by Oscar Bizarre.
Straight from the streets of Paris, four outstanding musicians made up their minds to leave their fingerprints on doom metal, infusing the genre with their unique and rebellious vibes. Today, Hangman’s Chair reveal their compagnon for this mission – and team up with world-wide leading metal label Nuclear Blast!
The band states: “We’re thrilled about this new collaboration with a respectable and renowned music company such as Nuclear Blast Records. Looking forward for a brighter future, let’s see where it will leads us.”
Jerome Riera, Nuclear Blast A&R, adds: “I’m delighted to welcome Hangman’s Chair to the Nuclear Blast family. With our label stepping up its operation in France I’m really pleased to be working with an act that represents some of the best emerging talent the French metal scene has to offer, bringing them to an international audience. Hangman’s Chair’s forthcoming album is going to be fantastic, and I’m sure their heavy, heart-rending sound will strike a mournful chord with audiences all over the world.”
With the stunning single »Cold & Distant«, the band lays the foundation stone for a more than successful cooperation here. The video for this gem features actrice Béatrice Dalle, one of the most stunning primadonnas of French cinema.
The band continues on the song: “The words of Travis Bickle still resonate ‘I realise now how much she’s like the others, cold and distant’. We are Travis as we are Betsy. When the World tries to cure and save you, we choose isolation. Embrace your depression and don’t complain!
This first extract gives a 5 minutes snippet of what to expect from the new album. Moreover, Béatrice Dalle, who stars the »Cold & Distant« video, fits the suit so easily, it’s like it was made for her.”
