The track reunites Velvet Revolver members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Dave Kushner
Kings of Chaos have revealed the music video for their debut single “Judgement Day.” Led by renowned rock drummer Matt Sorum (ex-Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), the group is finally releasing an album. Stream the official clip for their new song now below.
The track features Guns N’ Roses members Slash and Duff McKagan, as well as Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner. All three were members of Velvet Revolver with Sorum, and Matt spent notable time with Slash and McKagan in Guns N’ Roses as well from 1990 to 1997.
Sorum says of the video, “Drawing inspiration from the 1971 film Vanishing Point morphed with imagery inspired by Natural Born Killers, director Brian Cox (Bring Me The Horizon, Cypress Hill, The Misfits) and I conceptualized a man running from his demons on a wild ride to find redemption guided by The Reverend Willy G (ZZ Top‘s Billy F Gibbons), an Angel (Ace Harper, Matt’s fashion designer and choreographer wife) on a motorcycle and his inner child. A Wayward Wanderer searching for the light.”
After years of touring with some of the biggest names in rock and metal, Sorum has finally organized a proper album release. The supergroup’s debut album is set for release in late 2023. Fans can expect original music and guest collaborations with some of rock’s biggest names — including some of today’s most talented and iconic female artists.
From the Sunset Strip to South Africa, Argentina and Brazil, Kings of Chaos have enthralled fans around the world with their ever-changing lineup of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and multi-platinum artists. If you’ve been lucky enough to score a ticket to a KoC show, you might have caught Billy Idol, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith or Ann Wilson from Heart fronting the band — or even Corey Taylor from Slipknot, or the late Chester Bennington from Linkin Park. And yes, that was Slash on lead guitar — or Brian May from Queen, or Billy F Gibbons from ZZ Top. It’s a party on stage, and everyone’s invited.
“It’s a celebration with your bucket list artists you’ve always wanted to play with,” Sorum says.
