VIDEO NEWS: Green Lung Release Video For ‘Maxine (Witch Queen)’
Green Lung have released a video for their new track Maxine (Witch Queen), taken from their forthcoming new album This Heathen Land.
“We’ve celebrated British witchcraft in our lyrics since our first EP, and with this new single we wanted to celebrate the most iconic witch of the modern era – Maxine Sanders,” comments vocalist Tom Templar.
“The High Priestess at the heart of Alexandrian Witchcraft, Maxine is an unsung national treasure, and one of the first people to connect genuine witchcraft with rock ‘n roll back in the early Seventies. ‘Maxine (Witch Queen)’ is a love song to Maxine from the perspective of a member of her coven, and melds pounding riffage with psyched-out combo organs and stacked, multi-layered vocal harmonies. We were honoured to have several members of Maxine’s real life coven appear in the music video, and advise on the ritual elements. Ultimately, the song is intended as a celebration of Maxine Sanders, which we hope will introduce new initiates to her life’s work, and help her legend to live on.”
This Heathen Land is set for release on 3rd November via Nuclear Blast Records and is available to pre-order HERE.
