WATCH THE EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “MERCY” FROM BELLHEAD ONLY ON OUTBURN.COM
Chicago Post-Punk duo BELLHEAD release new video “Mercy” from their latest Dead Lights EP
While many artists took time off in 2020 and 2021 to just hope for the best, BELLHEAD continued working at full speed. The critically acclaimed duo of Karen and Ivan once again released new music with their latest EP Dead Lights. In addition, the duo booked several tour dates in the fall of 2021 and early 2022. To coincide with these tour dates the band are releasing the video “Mercy” exclusively through Outburn.com. Mercy is the first single off of the latest EP and was produced by Scott Fedor who has cut his teeth working post-production on multiple MCU films
The band once again returned to their trusty production team of audio engineer Neil Strauch (production / technical assistance of Iron and Wine, Counting Crows, Owls, Joan of Arc, Walking Bicycles among many others) mastering engineer Carl Saff (production / technical assistance of Acid Mothers Temple, Smoking Popes, Red Fang, Guided by Voices, etc), and management team David Schock (WTII records).
The new EP Dead Lights features five songs expanding the band’s signature sound. While you’ll hear the familiar gritty low bass that BELLHEAD has grown famous for on songs like “Mercy,” you can see a definite growth to the writing and recording styles of this group. The band nods to Type O Negative and Neil Young in “The River,” while the duo’s industrial roots are heard in the noir detective tale of “Nothing as It Seems.” “Frankenstein” is a frenetic journey into the madness of Mary Shelley’s gothic novel with a Alice Cooper/White Zombie flair, and “Dead Letter” resolves the EP with a slow burn erupting to a cathartic resolve.
