British rock band release landmark single and videos to mark launch of new material
Manchester, England/ November 6, 2011 — HellsBelles, the original British heavy metal band founded in 1984 has just released a new single “Why Did They Kill) Joe Hill’ – together with two new promo videos for the song on YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook.
The new videos, filmed on location in South Dakota, mark a major new departure for the band, moving into new areas of music as well as their tradional Eighties British heavy roots.
Songwriter Paul Quigley commented “I’ve had this little gem of a song up my sleeve for over three years now, and it was about time it was released to an unsuspecting world to wake them all up a bit out of their slumber.”
The current video, with its cast of renowned actors and actresses, was filmed by Steve Fitzhulme on location, with the band shots filmed in Manchester.
Commenting on the videos, Steve said: “This video cut was particularly challenging because the weather was a major factor in whether we got the shots done before the heavens opened. I think we managed it.” Steve’s YouTube channel is at twoblindmen and HellsBelles’ YouTube channel is at HellsBellesYTChannel.
The second ‘band’ video is slated for release 13th November 2011.
