LA rockers Budderside search for “The Truth” in latest music video single


Los Angeles-based rock outfit BUDDERSIDE beg to find the truth of life and its meaning with their new single “The Truth” out today, Friday, May 27, across all digital streaming platforms. Stream/download it at Vocalist, songwriter and founding member Patrick Stone seeks out these answers in the song’s music video filmed at a valley in Santa Barbara nearby where his Mother used to live. Watch “The Truth” music video, directed by Vicente Codero, streaming below.

STONE elaborated on the inspiration for “The Truth” stating: “My mother’s home use to sit at the top of the valley where we filmed the video in Santa Barbara. I’ve seen some of the most beautiful flowers and sunsets in my life there and had always thought it would be an amazing place to shoot. I remember sitting on her porch, it was like a theatre to watch God paint every day and night. It’s the exact opposite of where you’d expect to see this song explained. The truth is– no pun intended–that this song is so dark it’s dangerous to focus on its lesson. Hopefully, sharing it this way will allow listeners to lean into the grove and dual guitar solo more than its honest lyrics. For once, I’m actually happy to avoid explaining and more devoted to distracting with the visuals. It had to be daunting somehow, though, and I got fixated on the rapture and how insane that would be to see. Religious beliefs are not our brand, but what lies beyond the stars and the secrets we keep played out well into this story.”

“The Truth” is one of the many highlights on the band’s upcoming and as-yet-untitled album. Due this fall via oneRPM, it was recorded with producer Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead). “The Truth” follows the devilish single “Never Worth It” which made its radio debut on KLOS ‘New & Approved with Matt Pinfield” radio show earlier this month. Previously released singles include the mental health awareness oriented “Too Far,” the self-questioning “Ghostlighting” (and its Scooby Doo-inspired music video) and the album’s debut anthemic track “Voices.”

BUDDERSIDE is rounded out by a talented group of handpicked musicians who after being enlisted by Stone have been poached by some of rock’s top acts to lend their skills on tour and recording duties. Guitarist Sam “Bam” Koltun can be seen playing on tour with hard rock outfit Dorothy and glam rock/metal icons Faster Pussycat. Bassist Gabe Maska was cast as the lead role of Kurt Cobain for the Las Vegas rock show “27.” In addition, guitarist Logan Nikolic can be seen touring with rock singer Diamante, who are currently opening for Shinedown.
