Frank Turner‘s new hardcore side-project Mongol Horde have unveiled their first video, which can be viewed via YouTube below.
Entitled ‘Casual Threats From Weekend Hardmen‘, the track shows off a different side to Turner when compared to the traditional singer-songwriter make-up which has seen him achieve a gradual increase in commercial success over recent years. The group also includes Turner’s former Million Dead bandmate Ben Dawson, as well as Matt Nadir, who is presently a member of his backing band The Sleeping Souls.
“Musically it’s taking cues from bands like Jesus Lizard, Hot Snakes, Mclusky,” Turner has previously told NME of the band.
“Lyrically it’s very different from what I do now, it’s kind of depraved. The first song we wrote is about Natalie Portman’s tapeworm using her as a glove puppet to lead an uprising in Hollywood. We’re writing a whole pile of new songs and we’re going to do some live dates soon.”
Meanwhile, Frank Turner’s track ‘I Still Believe‘ hit the UK Top 40 yesterday (August 5th) after a high-profile live performance inside London’s Olympic Stadium shortly before the main section of the summer Games’ opening ceremony got under way late last month.Just Published:
