Irish thrashers, GAMA BOMB, have today released Miami Supercops - the third single to be taken from their upcoming studio album, Sea Savage. Miami Supercops is streaming everywhere now, and has an accompanying video premiering at New Noise Magazine. Sea Savage will set off on it's maiden voyage and be released via Prosthetic Records on December 4; pre-orders are available now.
Of the track, vocalist, Philly Byrne comments: "Miami Supercops
is our love letter to all classic cop movies, listing all the cliches and tropes you'd expect in the genre. It's inspired by the 1985 Italian comedy-cop movie of the same name. Over the last year, and God knows why, Domo has become obsessed with this film and wrote lyrics that sum up the plot with eerie accuracy. The music is kinda classic Gama Bomb speedy-thrash and has some of the coolest riffs of the new album. There's a line in this that says, 'Have your friends over, but don't take off your gun belt' and I think it's the most accurate observation ever made about cop movies."
Clocking in just shy of three and a half minutes, GAMA BOMB’s Miami Supercops is a high octane ode to classic cop films, evoking classic metal acts à la Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Overkill at their very best. Sea Savage presents itself in the form of a 19th Century play, with Act One and Act Two playing out on side A and side B of the record respectively. The pelagic tale follows the crew of the steamer ‘S.S. Gama Bomb’ as they voyage in search of a real-life Yeti, only to go slowly mad on the high seas. In true GAMA BOMB fashion, the album also features songs about 80s and 90s movies - because, why the hell not?
Sea Savage by GAMA BOMB will be released via Prosthetic Records on December 4, 2020.
