Texas-based Mouth of the South, featuring Colin Sharkey of Barrier, is debuting their official music video for “Uprooted” here on HM. The song comes from their upcoming July 2 release, Transparency. You can purchase the record and merchandise at the band’s store.

After we started filming a cop came up and tried to shut us down because it was super loud and apparently you could hear us all over town. As we were trying to respectfully work out some sort of negotiation with this cop (aka sweet talking him) another cop came up and told us that we should be good unless they got any more noise complaints. If it hadn’t been for that second cop we would have had to scrap the video and do something else from scratch another day. Guitarist Michael Butler

Music video filmed and edited by CJ Hudgins of Design Cortex.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
