Barn Burner Posts Music Video Online

Barn Burner has had a busy 2011, having completed a European headlining tour, west coast and east coast U.S. tours and most recently, the band performed at the Metal Sucks/Metal Injection/1000 Knives CMJ showcase.

During a U.S. tour with Ramming Speed back in August, Barn Burner took a day off to shoot a video for the title track from the band's latest album. The video, directed by Angela Boatwright, embodies Barn Burner and is full of partying, skateboarding, PBR and live footage. The fine folks over at Guitar World are exclusively premiering Scum of the Earth today. You can check out the NSFW version here, or find the censored edition at this location.

Barn Burner vocalist/guitarist Kevin Keegan adds: "The video reflects 2 days of us getting to do the funnest and most ridiculous shit. Angela managed to create an atmosphere that was insanely professional while making it feel like being on way too much acid. I actually think she spiked our drinks with some mind altering substance because I don't remember doing any of this…"

The "Bangers II: Scum of the Earth" track listing is as follows:

1. Scum of the Earth
2. Dark Side of the Barn
3. Gate Creeper
4. Keg Stand and Deliver
5. The Earth's Crust
6. Quest for the Cube
7. Brother Fear
8. Skid Marks the Spot
9. Crushing Defeat
10. Ghost Jam
