Bokassa have released the video for their new single Let’s Storm The Capitol, taken from forthcoming album All Out Of Dreams.
“Let’s Storm The Capitol is kind of a satirical look, at how rarely people form their own opinions even though they might think they do. Thus, making them useful idiots for opportunists who prey on uninformed people, and use them to accomplish their own agendas. The song’s title is also a nod to Neil Young’s “Let’s Impeach The President” from the mid-2000s, so you can’t accuse us of being particularly hip and trendy this time either,” explain the band.
They continue, “According to drummer Olav’s mother, this is also the best song we’ve ever made, which is quite the endorsement! For me the song is a musical melting pot, like most of our songs, consisting of a kind of Propagandhi-esque metal riff into an Alkaline Trio-like chorus before it turns into a cowbell groove ala KISS or Pantera. Vocally, we took some notes from the book of Rob Halford after supporting Judas Priest last year, and in the song, we reach some of our highest pitched notes ever, which might prove to be a challenge as we are not metal gods.”
