PRINCE DADDY & THE HYENA (BSM) release video ahead of selling out UK tour

London SOLD OUT! New album Cosmic Thrill Seekers out now via Big Scary Monsters

Premiered via Kerrang!, check it out here:

Vocalist Kory Gregory told Kerrang! “Our good friend Joey Tobin compiled a bunch of footage for us during our time in their neck of the woods in this past lil’ tour we did. A lot of it is either us having fun at Disney, riding coasters, eating turkey legs and shit, or it’s us playing at a skate shop we love called Programme with a bunch of close friends and confetti everywhere. The song is kind of about like ‘seeing in color’ again after a dark period of your life. So it sort of just made sense to put Joey’s colorful and somewhat optimistic footage alongside the song.”

Cosmic Thrill Seekers, the new record from Albany punk rock band PRINCE DADDY & THE HYENA, is many things. It is an odyssey of epic, The Monitor-esque proportions, a great, galloping sonic roadtrip across space and time and Albany, boomeranging around a horn of punk, pop, indie, garage rock, and orchestral, Queen-style arrangements and theatrics; it is an exploration of the fall-out after an acid trip, manic self-destruction, bottoming-out and recovering, and then slipping again; it is a candid, acute documentation of front person Kory Gregory’s cyclical mental health states as told through three acts and 14 songs/chapters; it is an existential presentation of eternal return theory, a victory via surrender to impermanence; and perhaps most of all, it is about Dorothy Gale and The Wizard Of Oz.

There are three acts in Cosmic Thrill Seekers, each exploring a stage in Gregory’s mental health. “I remember watching the Wizard of Oz one time, and noticing some weird kind of parallels between the cyclical nature of my mental health and that movie,” he says. “My mental health rotates and jumps from one stage to the next, and then repeats itself.” The closing moments of Cosmic Thrill Seekers reflect this, as the outro to the last track, “The Wacky Misadventures of the Passenger,” morphs into the first muted notes of opener “I Lost My Life.
