Badself Channel 1980s Rock Gods in ‘Stay Down’ Video

Former Future Kings of Spain members guitarist Karl Hussey and drummer Bryan McMahon join ex-Bambi bassist Dan Barry to bring you Badself. Finally finding time in ‘Lockdown’, Badself release ‘Stay Down’, the opening track and first single from the band’s debut album ‘The Three Daughters of Mara’ which was recorded with producer Ronan McHugh (Def Leppard). 

With a video that literally recaptures the look and feel of Survivor’s ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ and Journey’s ‘Separate Ways’, ‘Stay Down’ is a slice of straight up four to the floor AM radio rock with just a touch of grit.

With jagged edged songs, the music of Badself combines the forces of punk rock, blues, lyrical dark humour and a nod to the unrelenting movement of AC/DC. Sonically, you should also expect things stripped to their bare essentials, bright sparkling guitars, low down dirty bass, solid drums and no-nonsense vocal showers throughout.

Debut album ‘The Three Daughters of Mara’ is out now.

Produced by Ronan McHugh and Badself
