The brand new video for Hurtsmile’s “Just War Theory” is premiering today and can be viewed below.
Hurtsmile is frontman extraordinaire Gary Cherone’s (Extreme/ex-Van Halen) latest project and features Cherone collaborating with his brother, guitarist Mark Cherone. The Boston Globe referred to “Just War Theory” as a “revved-up rocker(s)” and the video is an equally-dynamic performance take on the song. “Just War Theory” has already received rock radio airplay in markets such as Boston, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Madison, New Jersey and more. Gary Cherone will appear live tonight on the nationally-syndicated “Eddie Trunk Rocks!” radio show.
Hurtsmile’s self-titled debut was just released in North America via Frontiers Records and has been winning over the press and fans alike. The Boston Herald said of the album, “the results are great”, while Colossal Pop referred to the album as “a rock solid album”; Metal Assault avowed, “With an entertaining debut that excellently portrays a plethora of musical styles executed with aplomb by four seasoned musicians, Hurtsmile is here to stay.” Chock-full of swaggering guitars, soaring vocals and eclecticism, HURTSMILE is a conceptually-cohesive album examining the nature of man and the human heart, with an added focus on the current state of world affairs and political commentary.
Hurtsmile will perform at this year’s M3 Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD on Saturday, May 14th. Hurtsmile is Gary Cherone (vocals), Mark Cherone (guitars), Joe Pessia (bass, mandolin) and Dana Spellman (drums, percussion).
