Stoner punks BOKASSA have today shared the official video for their latest single, veritable earworm ‘Captain Cold One’. The track is from their forthcoming album, ‘Crimson Riders’, set for release on June 21st.

BOKASSA frontman Jørn comments,”The video for ‘Captain Cold One’ takes place after the world takes a collective breath, having just avoided destruction, as is tradition in the universe they live in. A universe not unlike our own I might add. Having come so close to death, people react in different ways – we see an “end of the world party” and that the cult leader from our ‘Mouthbreathers Inc.’ video is still on the loose. Will he get captured by vigilantes or will he, yet again, escape? Watch it and find out!”

The video was shot in Manchester, England by Video Ink, in the same locale as filming for Captain America, Sherlock Holmes, and Peaky Blinders, and where BOKASSA shot the video for previous single, ‘Mouthbreathers Inc.’.

BOKASSA fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk. New album ‘Crimson Riders’ was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian ‘Big Bass’ Gardener. The record will be released on June 21st on CD, vinyl, and digitally.
