Atlanta-based glam punk rockers Starbenders have today released a new music video for their hypnotic single “BITCHES BE WITCHES” off their latest album ‘Love Potions‘ (out via Sumerian Records). With a guitar riff of Tony Iommi proportions and a vocal performance that holds its own in the rock ‘n’ roll pantheon, Starbenders have crafted a potent spell that will certainly lure you in. The band has conjured a new offering, the “BITCHES BE WITCHES” bundle which includes a Celtic-tinged, mandolin-laced interpretation of the single available here. Speaking on the band’s latest track, vocalist Kimi Shelter shares:“Those accused of witchcraft were once burned at the stake. Maybe they were a little different, more in tune than those around them, a touch more luminous. Although the use of fire is no longer utilized, the flames of fear and hate still burn bright. This song is a celebration of the dark and different. It’s also a reminder to anyone who’s listening that we can reject the black magic of words and actions meant to harm us. When we do, it’s returned to them. Bitches be witches.” For more, go to: (Source)

Release Official Music Video and Single Bundle for“Can’t Cheat Time“  Atlanta-based glam punk rockers Starbenders have released an energetic and evocative music video for their new single “Can’t Cheat Time” off most recent album “Love Potions“. “Can’t Cheat Time” is available now as part of a bundle featuring the original single and an acoustic version. “Can’t Cheat Time” perfectly pairs frontwoman Kimi Shelter‘s incredible vocal shapeshifting abilities with electrocuted guitars and heart-pounding rhythm for this stand out rock ‘n’ roll anthem. Speaking to the inspiration for the single’s music video, Shelter adds: “‘Can’t Cheat Time’ is a personal favorite amongst the band. This single has a wicked string arrangement reminiscent of Jeff Lynne from ELO’s production style. It was so rewarding hearing all of it come together with the live string players. The accompanying music video is a love letter to the mom and pop businesses that have shaped and supported our very existence. These businesses along with the touring industry have been devastated by the pandemic. We filmed in locations around Atlanta which include the local greasy spoon diner, the record shop, the independent guitar store, the watering hole, and the divey small music venue. While mega-retailers did not close down for even one […] For more, go to: (Source)
