Dopesick issue “Release Me” music video feat. Cristian Machado of Ill Niño

Punk/hard rock outfit Dopesick have a new video out for their track “Release Me”, which features a guest spot by Ill Niño frontman Cristian Machado. The clip was directed by Matt Zane. Machado comments:

“I had a great time making the video for ‘Release Me’. Somehow, we wound up on a Hollywood rooftop with Matt Zane, and insanity followed shortly after. The backdrop was the beautiful California night sky and a dimly lit Los Angeles skyline. I will say that musical instruments were definitely hurt during the making of this video and human beings are definitely to blame. I’ve never seen a Gibson Les Paul thrown off a rooftop, surely it instigated the destruction of several microphone stands on my part. Check out the video and keep an eye out for the flying Les Paul that nearly decapitated me. All for the love of rock!”

Dopesick mastermind Adam Albright adds:

“This song and video show a different musical side of Dopesick. After we release each video, Matt Zane and I always want to go bigger and better! We shot the ‘Release Me’ video on a roof top in LA at night, so it came out looking totally sick. We almost took Cristian out with a Les Paul and lost one off the roof! Cristian was breakin’ stuff, sh*t was flying around… there was a rap video being shot downstairs at the same time and they kept asking what all the banging around was about! HA! A Les Paul flying off a ledge, three stories up and almost into their shoot didn’t help! I’m really excited for people to see this one!”

The song is taken from the group’s upcoming EP The Love And Terror Cult, out April 28th on EMP Label Group/AMPED. CD pre-orders of the effort are up at EMP Merch. Digital ones can be picked up through iTunes.
