Ramming Speed released their first music video this week over at Metal Injection for their track “Anthems Of Despair (Summer Jam)”. The track is off the band’s most recent release Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die. Ramming Speed will be entering GodCity with Converge’s Kurt Ballou in December to work on the follow-up to the aforementioned effort. Drummer Jonah Livingston commented on the video and the forthcoming effort saying:
“The lyrics to “Anthems of Despair (Summer Jam)” are about the struggle of pushing a band forward and the toll it takes. The endless cold hungry nights on the road, the financial punishment, the strain on personal lives, and about how if you love what you’re doing you charge forward anyway. This is an anthem for those who refuse to give up, for those still hungry for more.
For this music video it made the most sense to head back up to Boston from our current home in Richmond, VA to throw a wild house party. We wanted to show the best part about being in a band; the friendship and energy that come with playing in a tiny, sweaty ass room with no stage. As we get older many have come and gone, so this video is a snapshot at some of our friends new and old that are keeping shit wild and awesome in the Boston DIY scene in 2014.
With the release of a video from our last record we are also finally ready to announce information about our next record – We’ll be heading back to GodCity with Kurt Ballou right before Christmas to record our third LP (second for Prosthetic). This will be by far our most metal record to date. We’ve been listening to an absurd amount of Judas Priest, and while everything is still wrapped around dbeat, thrash and grind, there’s even more of an emphasis on ferociously catchy guitars wildness then ever before.
