Michael Monroe premieres Goin’ Down With The Ship video

Finnish rocker Michael Monroe is premiering the video for “Goin’ Down With The Ship”, the latest single from his 10th album, “Blackout States.”

“The song is not necessarily about sailing or seamanship as such,” explains Monroe. “It’s basically about us getting on the tour bus and hitting the road with our band. Ville Juurikkala, who shot the videos for ‘Ballad of the Lower East Side,’ ‘Stained Glass Heart,’ and ‘Old King’s Road’ has done this new one, too.

“It was pretty easy to make and includes some footage shot by the band while we were on tour. I think the video has a good vibe and we’re all happy with the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy it!”

Monroe recorded the follow-up to 2013’s “Horns And Halos” with his touring band – bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company Of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen) and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig).

The singer launches a 2-week series of US shows with Sweden’s Hardcore Superstar tonight in Las Vegas.
