Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you the exclusive first look at The Burning Of Rome‘s newest music video for “Norman Bates”! Coming off of their latest release With Us, the video is an homage to the classic Hitchcock film Psycho, albeit with a slight twist at the end. The video is perfect for the Halloween season, so make sure to check it out below!
The Burning Of Rome won Best Alternative act at the San Diego music awards in August. With Us features additional remixes by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, Sublime, U2, Meat Puppets, Pepper).
With Us is available on iTunes. The band also has some upcoming shows. Tour dates are below.
Keyboard/lead vocals Traub states, “As a songwriter music is a therapeutic way for me to cope with the world around me. Ever since I was a child I felt like an alien visiting Earth and had (and still have) difficulty understanding what makes people normal. I opted to rebel against the norm through music; it was the only thing that made sense to me. The ultimate goal of The Burning of Rome is to reach as many people as possible with our sound and offer musical asylum to those needing it. Bands used to carry the banner for their followers in a way that seems fleeting. There aren’t any Joe Strummers of this generation acting as a voice for those that can’t be heard. I want The Burning of Rome to carry a banner for its followers and give them refuge from monotony. I want to rally the masses and call out the corrupt. I want a revolution to spark from this band.”
