STRAPPING YOUNG LAD To Film 'Wrong Side' Video

Canadian extremists STRAPPING YOUNG LAD will be filming a video for the first single, "Wrong Side", from their upcoming album, "The New Black", on May 28 with director Dave Brodsky (THE RED CHORD, GOD FORBID). The director is looking for extras of all shapes and sizes, so if you want to be in the video, and live in the New York City area, send an e-mail to oliver@mgenyc.com and they will respond with more information.

As previously reported, "The New Black" is scheduled for release in North America on July 11 via Century Media Records. The follow-up to last year's "Alien" was recorded at the Armoury and Profile studios in the band's hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia and was mixed by Mike Fraser, who has previously worked with AC/DC, AEROSMITH and METALLICA, among others.

"The New Black" track listing:

01. Decimator
02. You Suck
03. Antiproduct
04. Hope
05. Wrong Side
06. Monument
07. Far Beyond Metal
08. Fucker
09. Almost Again
10. Polyphony
11. The New Black
Bonus tracks
12. The Long Pig
13. C:enter:###

Commented STRAPPING YOUNG LAD mainman Devin Townsend: "The recording process went amazingly well, and STRAPPING as a whole is really excited about this effort. We were very inspired with the idea of doing Ozzfest, and the concept we are running with on this record is really based around abhorring the current music scene, yet being a part of it in some weird way. SYL is ready to be a subversive product for the unwitting 14-year-olds to scream along with. We also intend to sprinkle a little ugly around all the pretty bands this year. You can think of us as the proverbial pubic hair in the cheesecake of this year's festival. We are ugly, large and angry. We have also been around longer as a band than 90% the other bands. Most of all, we're just really excited to be a part of Ozzfest and this summer is going to be crazy."

Fast response since Alien was just released last year, I couldn't be happier. They'll probably only be one of the small handful of bands on Ozzfest this year that isnt a burning pile of feces as well. They deserve all the exposure they can get, they've been at it forever.

yeah psythe but for only 40 min worth of music between both bands i think they should increase the
time amount to at least 30 minutes it was seriously
dissappointing to see Soilwork, The Haunted, Arch
Enemy and In Flames for only 20 mins per set at
last years ozzfest. And i really dont want to see
any of the other bands with the exception of
BTBAM which i am finding to be a very good band
and plus they would more than likely come back to
Indy and play at the Emerson for a lot less. But we'll
see it depends on my fundage.
