Additionally, the band revealed the videos for two new songs – “Banshee” and “Rebel” – which can be streamed below now.
Last month, Extreme announced SIX – their first new studio album in over a decade. The record arrives on June 9 via earMUSIC. It is the long awaited follow-up to 2008’s Saudades de Rock. The band also revealed the video for the album’s lead single “Rise” which was directed by lead guitarist Nuno Bettencourt.
“Musically, it’s aggressive,” says frontman Gary Cherone about album opener “Rise.” “Lyrically, it’s a cautionary tale on the rise and fall of fame. You get seduced into it. Once you’re on top, they’ll rip you apart and tear you down. That’s the nature of the beast.”
In addition to directing the music video for “Rise,” Bettencourt also produced the record.
“When Eddie Van Halen passed, it really hit me,” shares Nuno. “I’m not going to be the one who will take the throne, but I felt some responsibility to keep guitar playing alive. So, you hear a lot of fire on the record.”
New York City natives Living Colour released their last studio album Shade back in 2017.
