Hot on the heels their third EP ‘All I Want Is Everything’, and accompanying thirty date USA tour, Australian hard rock phenomenon Ragdoll have released their second promotional video and single “Break You”.
“Break You is about the girl you love to hate… when you’re done loving yourself,” says lead singer Ryan Rafferty, tongue firmly in cheek. “Break You” bridges the gap between retro stadium rock hooks and modern hard rock riffing and is directly inspired by the band’s experiences on the road.
Produced by Dallas photographer Elspeth Erickson, the video gets beneath the skin of a touring rock and roll band and features live performance footage cut from the band’s 2013 USA tour as well as never before seen private video; it’s every bit as funny, hairy and left of center as fans have come to expect from Ragdoll.
With an intense desire to inject new life into the music they love; Ragdoll’s mission is to dismantle the sometimes tired genres of classic rock, hard rock and progressive rock and rebuild them, producing a modern hybrid that both transcends and revitalises the traditional rock genres. The result is a sound that’s bombastic and intricate, a sound that’s full and brash, leaving many to question how this trio is capable of producing a live sound more akin to that of a five-piece.
Ragdoll return to the USA in May and June this year, including for an unprecedented third straight appearance at The Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma, alongside Motorhead, Kid Rock, Five Finger Death Punch, Staind and more. “Break You” will be officially launched March 21st with an accompanying show at the Rocket Room in Northbridge, Western Australia.
