SPOTLIGHT BAND: Old James is delivering a much needed dose of ROCK with their new video for Words as Weapons

April 5, 2017

We bring the spotlight on a kick ass band that we saw in San Francisco a couple years back opening for Girlschool. We are excited to hear that they are still killing it with their straight up rock dipped in metal. The band is the Canadian power trio Old James. They are soon to release their debut album, Speak Volumes and they have just released a video for their new track, Words as Weapons.  The song delivers us a heaping much needed dose of Rock with powerful riffs, the perfect balance of gritty and smooth vocals, strong melody, smoking guitar solo and killer drums.  They capture the raw intensity of old school rock n roll, yet bring an in-your-face modern intensity that has them capturing both the metal and rock scene. Check out the video here: Band Members: Brian Stephenson (Lead Vocals/Bass Guitar) Andy Thompson (Lead Guitar) Chris Stephenson (Drums/Backing Vocals) Get ready for their new music and make sure to share the video with your friends.
