Bluesy metal act Royal Thunder put out their sophomore album Crooked Doors earlier this month, and today they’ve released the seven-minute-plus video for “Time Machine.” Frontwoman Mlny Parsonz, who recently split from her husband and Royal Thunder guitarist Josh Weaver, told Rolling Stone about the the personal impetus for “Time Machine”:
I made some bad choices with someone, and having this person in my life was really toxic for me. The song is me realizing, “Oh, my God, I just wasted all this time.” You just have to take something from an experience like that and learn from it.”
Parsonz also spoke with us extensively about how their record, Crooked Doors, was a break up from a lot of things — not simply the dissolution of one relationship. Directed by J.P. Bradburn, the video features fuzzy, projected neon footage of the band performing intermixed with symbols of the occult. Watch it below.
Crooked Doors is out now via Relapse.
