Alcatrazz ,the mighty Los Angeles-born guitar-driven heavy metal icons, release their epic new single ‘Grace Of God’taken from the anticipated new full-length V, set for release October 15th 2021 via Silver Lining Music.
The band celebrates the release of ‘Grace Of God’ with a new video contrasting scenes of beautiful, breathtaking landscape with sombre and evocative displays of raw emotion and battle. The track takes the listener on a monumental journey with White’s powerful soaring vocals, perfectly complimented by Stump and Waldo’s intricate weaving guitars-and-keys-wizardry bolstered by the thunderous and robust bass and drums from Shea and Benquechea.
“I love Grace of God” comments White “it is a cracking tune with lots of intricate vocal parts; I love what everybody in the band has done on it, it has great energy and drive… It’s just magic!”
“Lyrically, it is set in the Middle Ages,” White continues “it is about the fear of being sent off to war to fight for your King, your Queen or your country… to invade a land you’ve never heard of, to conquer people you know nothing about, to fight for a reason you’re not sure of and the desperation in accepting such fate.”
“When I first heard Grace of God, I just couldn’t believe how perfectly well melody and lyrics fitted together: it’s hard to imagine anything else being better than that” enthuses Waldo.“Doogie has the ability to write exactly what the melody of a track calls for and the result is very powerful.”
Alcatrazz are eager to get back on the road and bring V to the fans, kicking of their UK tour co-headlining with Girlschool in Milton Keynes on November 17th. For tickets and more information please visit: www.alcatrazzofficial.
