Hungary’s finest sonic shifting Punk Metal upstarts THE HELLFREAKS have released their brand new video: DOLDRUM DYNASTY, the 5th single to be taken from their recent album GOD ON THE RUN (2020) has been released on their own, and via Sunny Bastards Records in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. GOTR saw THE HELLFREAKS team up with the likes of Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Atreyu, Death By Stereo) for pre-production, Evan Rodaniche (Escape The Fate, Powerman 5000, Lacey Sturm) for production, and it was mix and mastered by Tom Waltz.
The stunning, energetic and talented vocalist Shakey Sue commented: “We chose Doldrum Dynasty, because the message of our song couldn’t be more relevant today. Don’t waste your time on self-doubt, just go for it! Run for your goals, don’t stop, bring wind in your sail, be your own storm! Don’t hesitate, don’t idle, always crave for the wind in your own doldrum dynasty!”
Filmed before the second Lockdown in Budapest, Shakey Sue and Co. became more and more aware that 2020 would once again become tough, and it made them think not only about their future but also about the entire year: “We had many different expectations for the year of our album release, but not in our wildest dreams did we think that we’re going to release GOTR at the start of a global pandemic! Self-doubt and questioning ourselves were our constant companions at the beginning of Covid-19. But after all the ups-and-down, and the overwhelming feedback from all around the globe, there is not a thing we would change! 2020 is challenging, the physical and mental health of an entire civilization is something no one has faced in our lifetime … We hope Doldrum Dynasty can help ease this stress a little bit … even if it’s only for a few minutes!”
THE HELLFREAKS are currently planning a summer tour and festivals throughout Europe but at the same time are already hard at work on the next album to be released in late 2021/early 2022.
