Bokassa have just released their next slab of stoner/punk brilliance from their forthcoming new album ‘Crimson Riders’. Check it out below…

Stoner punks BOKASSA have shared infectious new single, ‘Captain Cold One’, taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Crimson Riders’, set for release on June 21st.

Get the new track ‘Captain Cold One‘ into your brain via the link below;

BOKASSA frontman Jørn elaborates, “Captain Cold One is another character in Bokassa’s ever-growing character universe. Captain Cold One follows in the footsteps of the Hellbilly Handfisher, the ‘Crocsodile Dundee’, and our ever mythical Immortal Space Pirate.

The Captain is a man who lives for the weekend, and every day is a weekend for Captain Cold One! He’s your friend with a devil on his shoulder, he’s the lovable anti-hero, he’s the person voted most likely to not succeed at his graduation, and he is (most importantly) a man who lives like it’s Friday even though it’s only Monday!

Musically it’s everything from a hardcore Beastie Boys verse to a pop-punk woah-extravaganza-chorus to a Slayer-esque metal breakdown. I wrote the song after hearing a radio special about songs with woooahs in them and decided to write the most epic woooah song out there.

BOKASSA fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk.

New album ‘Crimson Riders’ was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian ‘Big Bass’ Gardener. The record will be released on June 21st on CD, vinyl, and digitally.

Bokassa will be performing at Slane Castle on Saturday, June 8th with Ghost and Metallica. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
