Former Pantera bassist and Kill Devil Hill member Rex Brown has teamed up with Revolver to premiere “Buried Alive,” the new song and music video from his forthcoming solo full-length, Smoke on This… “Buried Alive” touches on the aftermath of Dimebag Darrell’s death and how Brown had to find himself in the wake of the tragedy and Pantera’s dissolution.
The video directed Justin Reich (Zakk Wylde, Ace Frehley). They shot it in Nashville, where the record was recorded and produced. The clip features Brown and his bandmates — co-writer and guitarist Lance Harvill, rhythm guitarist Joe Shadid, Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly and keyboardist Caleb Sherman.
“Justin once again did a fantastic job,” says Brown. “The video captures every bit of emotion I had when I was writing the song. It’s a very personal song for me.”
Brown also said of the new record, “My motto these days is ‘Shake some shit up.’ I’ve had my ups and downs, like anybody in this business. I wanted to feel like a true artist again, where I can write and record songs without worrying about any of the bullshit. This is just something else I’m doing for fun, man. And musical freedom. Fun has to come into it or I’m not going to do it. I’ve had a tremendous career and now I feel like I’m 25 years old again. This has given me that freedom I needed.”
Smoke on This… is out July 28th via eOne Music. Physical copies can be pre-ordered here while digital pre-orders are available at thislocation.
