Bass Drum Of Death is a two piece band from Mississippi composed of John Barrett on guitar/vocals and Colin Sneed on drums. Together they make blown-out, blazing songs. Their debut LP is out now on Fat Possum Records. He wrote and recorded the whole record himself using drums, a guitar, a USB microphone, and a computer before teaching Sneed to play drums for the live show and beyond. The songs are about drugs, religious girls, panic attacks, mild to severe depression, Elvis appearing in your dreams and giving you advice, gravity bongs, and the devil living inside your brain.
Pitchfork TV has premiered the official video for “Get Found” off ‘GB City’ today. Watch it here.
