The new video from STRAPPING YOUNG LAD for the song “Wrongside” will premiere on MTV2’s Headbanger’s Ball program this Saturday night, August 3rd at 10PM EST/7PM PST. Directed by David Brodsky (God Forbid, All That Remains and The Red Chord) it is the first music video from STRAPPING YOUNG LAD’s newest album, *The New Black*.
Released on July 11th, *The New Black* debuted at #200 on the Billboard charts. The band is currently tearing up the Second Stage on this year’s Ozzfest through August 13th, and has become one of the most talked about, must-see artists on this year’s tour due to the band’s intense live set.
On August 1st, the group welcomed James MacDonough (ex-Megadeth, Iced Earth) to their line-up to handle the bass duties for the remaining tour dates. MacDonough will be replacing Byron Stroud only for these remaining shows since Stroud will be hitting the road with Fear Factory.
Century Media Records also just re-released STRAPPING YOUNG LAD’s 1995 debut album, *Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing*, which changed the metal world forever. The re-issue features a re-mastered version of this classic debut, 4 bonus tracks, the “S.Y.L.” video and a 12-page booklet with extended liner notes from Devin himself.
