Scottish alt-rock duo Honeyblood have been touring hard behind last year’s sophomore effort “Babes Never Die”, and those experiences have been funneled into a fun video for the album’s excellent title track. Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers captured phone video from backstage and the highway, and it’s all rolled up along with an abundance of performance footage into one of those classic road videos one that really gives you a sense of who these people are while ultimately letting the super-catchy music speak for itself. Here’s what Tweeddale had to say about it:

This video has such a special significance to us. It was filmed over three months of shows throughout the US and UK. It’s a real snapshot of that tour and what it’s like for us on the road. Most of the travel and backstage footage was filmed by Cat and I on our phones. However, we could not have made it without great folk getting involved and filming at the shows! The video was edited by Gareth Goodlad (On Red Productions).

Taken from the new album ‘Babes Never Die‘. Out now on Fat Cat Records.

With the departure of drummer Shona McVicar after their debut in 2014, new drummer Cat Myers joined singer/guitarist Stina Tweeddale in the second incarnation of Honeyblood and now the second full-length album release.

Producer James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz) refines the distorted fuzzy hooks of their early DIY material and tightens the catchy choruses and call-and-response guitar lines. In between the opening and closing instrumentals, ‘Intro’ and ‘Outro’, there are ten tracks of varying degrees of heavy percussion (the album’s title track), lead single ‘Ready For The Magic’, all pop-punk infectiousness with handclaps and sing-along swagger, and the grunge-styled ‘Sea Hearts’.

Elsewhere, the fuzzy guitar ballad ‘Cruel’ with Myers and Tweeddale’s harmonies slows the pace, and there’s a wistful, emotional side to ‘Gangs’, Tweddale’s recollection of early life growing up in a rough suburb of Edinburgh

Honeyblood’s second album is a high quality vehicle of contagious spirit and ‘babes forever’ girl power.

This Glaswegian duo do feisty, fuzzed up indie rock that sticks two fingers up at heartbreak.

If you’re not familiar with Glasgow duo Honeyblood, it’s OK, but right now is the time to play catch up. Next month they release their second album, Babes Never Dieand their latest taster is the song “Sea Hearts,” premiering below, it definately does not disappoint.

It’s fuzzed up, 90s-indebted indie rock that’ll make you wanna mosh and destroy stuff and do shots and headbang and run real fast and ride your bike with your hands nowhere near the handlebars.

“Sea Hearts” is about that intense sort of friendship that makes you feel invincible,” says Stina. “Together you can weather any heartbreak and in turn, cause havoc.” I’m sure you have too Stina.

Honeyblood has just released their first single “Ready for the Magic” off their second album, Babes Never Die due out November 4th via Fat Cat Records. The track starts off with heavy drum beats, shredding guitar riffs and fierce, confident vocals. Stina Tweeddale has this haunting, magical quality in her straightforward lyrics and hooking melodies. Honeyblood is duo Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers out of Glasgow, Scotland. Forming in 2012 and releasing their first self-titled LP in 2014. I get caught up in their music and I can’t wait for this next album, because like Honeyblood, I am waiting on the next release with delighted anticipation .
