Watch the new video from Sandrider, “Alia”
Last month, Seattle stoner metal group Sandrider—featuring former members of Akimbo and Tight Bros from Way Back When—released their fourth album Enveletration, a heroic slab of big riffs and brawny low-end, via Satanik Royalty. Today, the group have shared a new video from the album for its leadoff track, “Alia.” The new clip is edited and directed by Sean Donavan, and shot by Michael Cooper, and it’s a raw, lo-fi performance clip that showcases the band simply tearing it up in a room the old-fashioned way. Which is all you need with a song like this, which goes big on crushing guitars and wrecking-ball heaviness. It’s a monster of a song, and a super fun video at that. Check it out below.
