Irish thrash metal band Gama Bomb have released a crime thriller themed video for new single ‘Give Me Leather’. The headbanging track is the third single from the band’s sixth album Speed Between The Lines, just released on AFM Records.
The video is inspired by Italian Giallo thrillers of the 60’s and 70’s like Profundo Rosso and Suspiria, and was filmed on location in Edinburgh, Scotland and at London’s famous Barbican centre.
“’Give Me Leather’ is a perverse little song so we needed the right shoot location,” explained singer Philly Byrne. “We spent a whole day shooting in a real, working fetish dungeon called Maison de Debauch. After sixteen years in the heavy metal business we thought we’d seen it all, but some of the devices they had in there would turn your hair white!
“It was fun to play around with whips and chains all day, then added a Giallo flavour because we’re all huge fans of the genre. It’s safe to say Gama Bomb doesn’t get much more sexy than this – which is really sad when you think about it.”
‘Give Me Leather’ is available as a 7” vinyl single from AFM Records featuring cover art by Rory McGuigan (Villagers) that was inspired by vintage paperback novels, as well as available on stream, and of course you can see the video right here at RAMzine.
