New York-based DareDevil Squadron, featuring Trans-Siberian Orchestra guitarist Angus Clark, recently broke their extended silence and released a new video in anticipation of their next album, Breakneck Speed. The "Last Resort" video is available below, and the song can now be purchased via iTunes at this location. The single features two additional tracks, live cuts of "Power Trip" and "Fairies Wear Boots"
"The Squadron combines virtuosity with finesse in order to create an emotional impact on the listener unrivaled by their contemporaries. Substantive and relatable lyrics that draw you in and captivate you. Memorable melodies and rhythmic hooks that stick in your head for days. The sound of rock music as it was meant to be played, loud and unadorned."
It was in the Back Lounge of a tour bus (with an early Iron Maiden concert DVD playing in the background) that Angus and Andrew first discussed the future of the Next New Wave Of British-Inspired American Heavy Metal or simply, NNWOBIAHM.
DareDevil Squadron released their first album, Out Of The Sun in 2009. Check out the title track and "Back Lounge" below.
