Michael Monroe has released the video for his new single, “Goin’ Down With The Ship.”
The track is lifted from the legendary vocalist’s new album, Blackout States, released last year via Spinefarm.
Says Monroe: “The song is not necessarily about sailing or seamanship as such. It’s basically about us getting on the tour bus and hitting the road with our band. Ville Juurikkala, who shot the videos for ‘Ballad of the Lower East Side’, ‘Stained Glass Heart’ and ‘Old King’s Road’ has done this new one, too. It was pretty easy to make and includes some footage shot by the band while we were on tour.
“I think the video has a good vibe and we’re all happy with the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy it!”
