The Skinny: Rising Bay Area metal band Mudface have released “HellFoot”, the powerful lead single from their forthcoming album The Bane Of Existence. Admittedly, we’re new to the group, but hearing this track we were totally sold. Give us MORE!

Chris Dinsmore, the band’s lead singer, describes the song and video this way: “The song ‘Hellfoot’ is about making the right choices in life… Too many times, we end up listening to that devil on our shoulder and it ends up proving fatal. The concept behind the ‘Hellfoot’ video goes beyond making choices for yourself. It’s more about choices being made for you because you are not strong enough in your own head to fight off those devils… Like sheep being led to the slaughter. The video was shot in a studio in Santa Rosa, California by Mike Sloat, who has directed videos for Exodus, Testament, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and American Head Charge. Many of our fellow musicians and fans did an outstanding job acting as extras in the video. Having them participate made it extra special for the band – we truly appreciate their support!”

The new album The Bane Of Existence was produced by Sahaj Ticotin (RA) and Bob Marlette (Atreyu, Coal Chamber, Rob Zombie, Seether) and will be released on March 18th, 2016. Tour dates are now being booked to coincide with the album release and will be announced in early March.
