MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE unleash video for ‘God of Nothing’

First video from recently released self-titled album

Band joins DEMON HUNTER on the Scream The Prayer Tour this June

Alabama metal powerhouse MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE are excited to share their stunning new video for “God of Nothing,” one of the standout tracks from the band’s recently released self-titled album, premiering today in conjunction with Hot Topic.

Watch ‘God of Nothing’:
“We chose ‘God of Nothing’ as our premiere video because we feel like it encompasses all aspects of our band, new and old,” says MCMB frontman Matthew Hasting. “Fans of metal, hardcore, and nu-metal can all find a part of the song they can really get into! Plus it’s one of our favorite, more experimental songs from the self-titled release!”
Produced by Jimmie Myers (UNDER0ATH, AUGUST BURNS RED), the darkly powerful clip finds the band giving a savage performance while doused in black latex paint that, Hasting assures, is much more fun to look at than it was to wear.
“I’m not going to sugarcoat anything, probably one of the worst moments of my life,” Hasting laughs. “It was freezing outside, and tons of performance takes made the paint dry in our hair and skin, making it almost impossible to get off. To remove it from my eyes and face, to insure no health hazards, I had to crawl into an ice-cold creek near our shoot at 3 a.m. in 30 degree weather. Definitely will remember this video for the rest of my life. Everyone better watch it!”

MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE are currently wrapping up tour dates in the midwest and will take a brief breather before heading out to support DEMON HUNTER on the Scream The Prayer Tour in June alongside the likes of EMERY, SLEEPING GIANT, CLOSE YOUR EYES, HUNDREDTH, THE GREAT COMMISSION, GIDEON, A BULLET FOR A PRETTY BOY and YOUR MEMORIAL.

Recorded with esteemed producer Zeuss (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE finds the band reaching deep mentally and emotionally for what is without a doubt their crowning achievement thus far, a hard-hitting, experimental, cinematic opus that has set a fire in the hearts of old and new fans alike. MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE have boldly redefined themselves for this new chapter of their career, and as a result, the album has been met with fanfare from both theband’s legion of followers and tastemakers throughout the music world, including magazines such as Outburn, which annointed Mychildren Mybride with a perfect 10 out of 10 rating, praising the album as “above all others this year thus far.”
“While writing MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE we were very conscious of what our fans had to say aboutUnbreakable and Lost Boy and what they wanted to hear,” Hasting says. “We’re so happy that oldMCMB fans and new are loving the album as much as our first, and last, and even more so than the past two.”

“The combination of great studio production, palpable energy, highly entertaining writing, relatable lyrics, and an undeniably impressive replay value put this release above all others this year thus far [10/10]” -OUTBURN

“A devastating beast that shows the ability to be incredibly hard-hitting and addictive… [MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE] were right for making this their self- titled record considering it shows them at their best yet.”

“[An] 11 track masterpiece” -SUBSTREAM MUSIC PRESS

“The riffs are more brutal, the choruses are bigger and more epic and the guys sound hungry… [MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE] have definitely raised the bar on this album [4/5]”

“This self-titled effort is nothing short of excellent… MCMB have created an astonishingly good record [9/10]” -DEAD PRESS

“MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE have put to rest any doubters they may have had by releasing their deepest and most emotional record to date. Fans of MCMB, old and new, should rejoice.” -LEXINGTON MUSIC PRESS

“an intense, career-defining record [8/10] -PURE GRAIN AUDIO

“[MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE] has broken loose from its chains… [this album] has no doubt raised their bar at the highest levelt -HM

“[MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE] offers plenty of headbanging excitement”

“an incredibly powerful release” -CCM
