“Honky Tonk Metal” Road Warriors SCATTERED HAMLET Release Fan-Picked Video “Shelter” + Announce October 2014 Tour Dates

If Stone Cold Steve Austin teamed up with Bo and Luke Duke and got into a heavy duty parking lot brawl on a Saturday night, you would have yourself the personification of six-piece outlaw metal band SCATTERED HAMLET. Known for their rowdy live shows featuring harmonicas, double and triple guitar attacks, and lots of whiskey, SCATTERED HAMLET has been described by Big Wheel Magazine as having “the feel and sound of the American South’s influence modernized for punk and metal consumption.

Today, SCATTERED HAMLET has unleashed their music video for the track ‘Shelter’! ‘Shelter’ was produced by Grammy-nominated Jason Donaghy and mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg (White Zombie, Slayer, Danzig). Keeping true to their loyal and growing fan base, the band took to social media and let the fans vote on which song would serve as the first video from the album.

‘Shelter’ is an autobiographical song that champions trucker speed, quitting your job and heading out on the highway – pretty much what SCATTERED HAMLET is all about! The video for ‘Shelter’ has been preceded by a series of behind-the-scenes “life on the road” videos released weekly, called Hell Rider TV.

According to frontman Adam Joad, a man who is known for performing on top of a beer keg with a shotgun converted into a microphone stand, “We’re pumped to finally get a video out there for the Skeleton Dixie album, we had been so busy touring, shooting a video always kept getting put on the back-burner.”

In addition to this video announcement, SCATTERED HAMLET is excited to announce a U.S. tour, hitting several markets this October. Fresh off a series of tour dates that included support for the Genitorturers and Wayland, combined with an appearance at this year’s Rocklahoma Festival along with industry heavyweights like Black Label Society, Kid Rock, Hell Yeah and Five Finger Death Punch, the band kicks off the tour on October 1st in Los Angeles, CA. Several venues are still TBA, so stay tuned for updates.
