“When hell is full, the dead will walk the earth – turns out they like rock ‘n roll too.” – Ruff Majik
Lead Pills And Thrills is the third single to be released from The Devil’s Cattle, the upcoming album from South African stoner rock collective Ruff Majik. It’s the first one to feature long-time producer and new member Evert Snyman plus founding member Johni Holiday front and centre on vocal duties. It’s also first time the band experimented with piano driven rock ‘n roll. Lyrically, the song deals with crippling addiction to both lost love and alcohol.
The video is the conceptual follow up for the animated feature for previous single Who Keeps Score.
“Jimmy (bassist) and I are both out in the wasteland, being pursued by zombies. Evert has been taken hostage by a zombie horde to be the personal piano man for their bar – and we set out to rescue him. Once there, we discover we’ve have fallen right into a clumsily planned trap.”, laughs Johni.
This music video (as with the previous videos and album art) is a love letter to B-grade horror and action movies, and this vision was captured perfectly by Tiger And Lilly Productions.
