Los Angeles act My Ruin - featuring vocalist Tairrie B, husband & multi-instrumentalist Mick Murphy, and bassist Luciano Ferrea - has premiered a new video for "Heretic Dreams," which is taken from the band's latest album "The Sacred Mood."
Check it out below. The following press release was also issued about the clip:
"The unholy eloquence of ‘Heretic Dreams’ invites listeners to worship at the alter of their own imaginations taking them on a magical journey through the heart of a non believer with percussive lyrical patterns winding through a sludgy musical rock garden of driving anthem riffs and anathema sentiment.
"Produced by guitarist Mick Murphy along with longtime friend Joel Stooksbury, 'The Sacred Mood' was recorded at Soundtrack Black Studio in the hills of East Tennessee where My Ruin previously recorded their 2011 critically acclaimed release 'A Southern Revelation.'" More...

Los Angeles based My Ruin has announced the band will be streaming new album "The Sacred Mood" for 1 week starting Saturday, June 1st through Saturday, June 8th. The full streaming of all 10 tracks will be exclusively via the band's Soundcloud page.
"The Sacred Mood" is set for release on Tuesday, June 11th via iTunes & Amazon and the band also recently released a teaser video, available below. The teaser was created by Tor Burrows of Notorious Design and features studio & live footage along with artwork by Manchester, UK based artist Kayleigh Brookes of The Little Room at House of Brookes who designed the My Ruin’s new album cover.
Produced by My Ruin guitarist Mick Murphy along with longtime friend Joel Stooksbury, "The Sacred Mood" was recorded at Soundtrack Black Studio in the hills of East Tennessee where My Ruin previously recorded "A Southern Revelation." The band comments:
"The atmosphere of the new album is heavily drenched in the heat of the South where it was recorded and fueled by insomnia filled nights in Los Angeles where it was written. 'The Sacred Mood' is a subtle reinvention for My Ruin. In an industry that is ever changing, we're not a band who pays attention to the current trends. We've found our sound and we simply do what we do while staying true to our roots. I think our fans appreciate our integrity and we appreciate our fans. We offered the last album as a free download where people could donate to the band if they wanted and it was a great success but we are taking a different approach with our new album which we are self releasing once again. Unfortunately, we have learned over time that most record labels are not for us and we seem to do better on our own as a DIY independent band which is what we have always been, today more than ever with our eighth album 'The Sacred Mood' as a testament to our staying power and dedication to our music."

"Dear friends, we are excited to announce the long awaited premiere of our new video for the song 'Deconsecra†ed' which will take place this Thursday, June 7th at our website.
"Our new video was filmed and edited by none other than the lovely and talented Miss Tor Burrows of Notorious Design. Tor captured My Ruin live when we toured the UK & France earlier this year for a cool documentary style film she is currently editing of the time she spent with us on the road.
"'Deconsecra†ed' will give you a sneak preview of our DVD that we plan to release in December and features additional footage shot by photographers Andy Watson, Doug Rimington and Matt Alston of Sanctorum.
"Here are a few screen shot teasers to get you in the mood, so remember to mark your calendars and join us for the big debut. This is a southern revelation!"
L.A. act My Ruin has issued the following announcement about rehearsing for upcoming live shows and a new music video:
"Dear Friends - After a brief hiccup following our 'Southern Revelation' tour we are happy to announce that we're back in the studio rehearsing again and would like to [re]introduce our new drummer and long time friend Marcelo Palomino.
"Many of you will be familiar with Celo from his days we spent together in Manhole/Tura Satana but he also toured with My Ruin in 1999 and again 2008 when we recorded our live DVD 'Alive On The Other Side.'
"Our most recent collaboration has been behind the scenes for My Ruin's latest video 'Tennessee Elegy' which he filmed and co directed with me & Tor Burrows. It's great to have Celo back with us. It feels like home. At the moment he's getting familiar with our last two albums and Mick, Luciano & I are all looking forward to playing live with him soon and shooting our next video!
"Here's a live video we shot during the last show he played with us a few years ago in Los Angeles." More...
Los Angeles based act My Ruin has checked in from the road with the following tour report:
"The shows have been getting better and better with the intensity of the band and fans together. We rocked the the hell out of Legends in Newcastle and I really enjoyed being able to finally watch all the sets of Long Day Fear, Sanctorum & Godsized as they each killed it with their own brands of rock & metal to warm up the stage before ours. Met so many sweet fans after the show and had an amazing huge handmade and heartfelt gift given to me and the Mick before it by one of my most beautiful and blasphemous girls Alexandra Morgan and her fiance Noah Remmer which I will be posting a photo of soon. It simply blew us away!
"Mick & I did an amazing photo shoot with the lovely Miss Kayla Wren of Skin Deep Magazine which you can see a teaser of in this post. This lady was such a pleasure to shoot with and a true artist behind the lens. Can't wait to work with her again! Also took some fun band shots with Lisa Marie Patterson, Louise Mallen and Aaron Sly of Sanctorum who is a killer photographer and really knows how to 'tech that shit!' ;) Both Aaron and drummer Matt Alston have been helping me document this tour with photos and videos which we will be uploading and sharing as soon I promise! Been so busy before and after the shows. More...
Los Angeles act My Ruin has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting session bassist Eddie Brnabic for upcoming live shows:
"It's with heavy hearts we have to let you know part that our bass player Luciano Ferrea will not be joining us on the tour. Luciano is from Argentina and although he has lived in the states for many years now and working towards becoming a legal citizen sometimes shit just happens. You can't control the government and unfortunately he had to deal with an unexpected issue that arose regarding his citizenship with immigration.
"Although everything is now fine behind the scenes, we were told by his attorney that it would take a couple months to resolve and get his proper paperwork so his leaving the country for the tour would not be a good idea at this time. Needless to say, we were all very sad because we love Luciano and were all looking forward to him joining us for his second tour of UK and our one off in France. We explored every avenue but there was nothing we could do but find someone else to fill in because we obviously couldn't cancel the tour. Luciano will be with us in spirit and he will be with us at our upcoming shows stateside after the tour and next time we come back to Britain! He is still in My Ruin.
"That being said, we would like to introduce you all to Eddie Brnabic. Luciano has played with Eddie in Beggars Ball & Zappada and he is his very close friend. When Eddie kindly offered to stand in on bass, we graciously accepted to keep it in the family. We've known Eddie for a while now and he's a great guy not to mention an extremely talented a multi-instrumentalist similar to Mick. In fact they have a lot in common when it comes to music. Eddie began learning our set while we were on holiday in Tennessee and we've been quietly rehearsing and getting to know each other musically since we returned in the New Year. He's sounding rad and so is the set!
"On an interesting side note: he's also the very first dirty blonde we've had in the band. Speaking of firsts, this will be his first time touring the UK as well as our new drummer Isaac Lee's first time over so we hope all our friends and fans will welcome both our guys with open hearts and make them feel at home like you always make us feel. Please take a moment to add both Eddie and Isaac [if you haven't already] and send them some rock love. We recorded our last rehearsal and the band is on fire, ready to hit the stage with our special guests Godsized - Sanctorum & Long Day Fear. This is one heavy f**king bill so don't miss it!"

Los Angeles rockers My Ruin have issued the following comments about the recent death of Type O Negative front man Peter Steele:
"When I heard the sad news that Peter Steele had passed away I really didn’t want to believe it was true because 48 is so young and when someone you know dies it really makes you think about your own mortality and how life can be cut short in a moment. It makes you think of a lot of things. I met Peter back in 1996 when my previous band ‘Manhole’ was asked to join Type O Negative on their October Rust tour along with Life of Agony. We spent 2 months rockin the USA together and a cold and grey skied month in Europe which ironically seemed to be the perfect backdrop for the tour at the time.
"From the first day I met Peter I thought he was so funny but not in the typical funny guy way. He had this self-deprecating sense of humor that was kind of unusual for a front man in rock and he was definitely not your usual lead singer. He never seemed to take himself too seriously for a majestic man whose 6’7 commanding presence could come off very intimidating to those who didn’t know him. I always found him to be nice and even a bit insecure on occasion even and I used to joke that he reminded me of the Wolfman, Frankenstein and Dracula all rolled up into one sinisterly handsome rockstar. I remember being on the road together and after shows people would to ask me to introduce them to him because they were afraid to approach him which I always found funny and so did he when I told him.
"Writers were always curious during interviews as to how he was treating me while on the tour because he had such a strange reputation when it came to women. Once when we were doing an on the road feature for Metal Hammer Magazine he came backstage and saw I was doing a photo shoot and decided he wanted to be in a few shots with me so we hammed it up together for the camera. Before meeting Peter, I remember thinking he was probably going to be a complete asshole to me but he was actually the total opposite and I was pleasantly surprised. He was very sweet and treated me with respect while on the road which meant a great deal to me at the time. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and would always let me use the kettle, mirror and bathroom in his dressing room before we went on stage if ours happened to be a shithole which it was on many nights. It may sound silly but it was little things like that which meant a lot to me as a woman on tour with a bunch of dudes. More...
