Los Angeles based underground metal veterans My Ruin featuring vocalist Tairrie B Murphy and guitarist / husband Mick Murphy have released their new video for the song ‘Tennessee Elegy’ which is the opening track on My Ruin’s upcoming seventh album and magnum opus ‘A Southern Revelation’ set to hit the internet December 7th as a free download digital only release middle finger to their ex- label and gift to fans just in time for Christmas exclusively via

The new video, which features Luciano Ferrea on bass and new drummer Isaac Lee [who is the latest addition to the Mi Ruina familia] was co directed by Tairrie B along with former [Manhole, Tura Satana & My Ruin] drummer Marcelo Palomino of MFP Film Productions and Tor Burrows of Notorious Design. Marcelo also filmed the video and handled all the camera work while the editing and special effects were done by Tor Burrows who created My Ruin’s previous two videos for ‘Long Dark Night’ and ‘Excommunicated’ from their 2010 album ‘Ghosts and Good Stories’.

“We pride ourselves on being a DIY band and have no label supporting us so we really had no budget for this video. It was truly a labor of rock love and faith in friendships that helped to create ‘Tennessee Elegy’ and there was a lot of team work behind the scenes” according to Tairrie B. “Marcelo has been a close friend of mine for many years and was also my original drummer when I started out in my first band Manhole in the early 90’s. We’ve wanted to collaborate on a video for My Ruin for a while but it never seemed to be the right time until now. Celo is based in LA and we had a lot of fun shooting the video with him. Tor is based in the UK and there is the 8 hour time difference so we have learned to utilize Skype and Dropbox as our way of working together. She is a longtime fan turned friend who really understands our band and music deeply. Her attention to detail in bringing our songs to life by the use of interesting effects and iconic imagery with me is truly inspiring. The videos we create together feel very sacred and timeless which is also how we like to think of our albums."

Tennessee Elegy Video:

Shot on a green screen in My Ruin’s rehearsal studio and deep in the heart of East LA at Evergreen Cemetery, ‘Tennessee Elegy’ is a cold hard rocking lament that pays homage to the winter month in which ‘A Southern Revelation’ was recorded and sets the temperature for the new album with a cathartic release and therapeutic vent of anguish. My Ruin will be hitting the UK & France in January 2012 for their ‘Southern Revelation Tour’  and will be bringing with them special guests Godsized, Sanctorum & Long Day Fear! They will be warming up for the tour with a show Saturday, December 3rd @ The Slide Bar in Fullerton, Ca. with special guests Ana Kefr & All Hail The Yeti followed by an intimate album release party and show at On The Rox in West Hollywood.
