Tommy Concrete, well-known from his stint with Scottish hardcore punk band The Exploited, has a new album coming out on October 20th. While his solo work is more rooted in metal reminiscent of bands like Devin Townsend and Judas Priest, there are still hints of his punk rock roots sprinkled throughout the release. But at its core, Unrelaxed is a diverse mix of progressive metal, stoner doom and psych, all written and assembled by Tommy himself except for drum programming from Bryan Ramage (Ramage Inc., Cilice). The album is also deeply personal for Tommy, dealing with mental health issues including his own battle with autism.
All-in-all, Unrelaxed is a truly unique and heartfelt listening experience, and we couldn’t be more honored to share a track from it with our loyal Vault Hunters. Check out what the man himself Tommy Concrete had to say about the video and then scroll down further to watch it.
“Leith Punk Flat” is dedicated to anyone who relates to the idea of spending hours in poverty making music on out of date technology. The creative process as a reason to live and an all-consuming addiction that cures you of normal life.’
Unrelaxed will be released on October 19th via Howling Invocations, on digital platforms, and a run of 100 limited edition numbered digipack CDs. Get your pre-order on pronto!
