From The Press Release
BODY COUNT RELEASE “BUM-RUSH” VIDEO
CARNIVORE ARRIVES ON MARCH 6 VIA CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS
“It’s a juggernaut” – Loudwire
“The album is a triumphant clarion call, and Body Count have provided the 2020 soundtrack for us to riot to” – Decibel Magazine
“Unlike many of their peers in the rap-rock game, Body Count reliably create a high-quality fusion of metal and hip-hop without sounding corny for even a second.” – Revolver Magazine
Body Count have released a video for “Bum-Rush” (https://bodycount.lnk.to/Carnivore), the second single previewing the band’s highly anticipated seventh album, Carnivore (March 6, Century Media Records).
Ice-T, the legendary, genre-busting icon, said of the song: “Another fast-moving Body Count track continuing my attempt to wake people up.”
The clip, which was filmed in New York and Los Angeles, was produced and directed by Jay Rodriguez for Itchy House Films. Rodriguez has crafted videos for Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled and Justine Skye. The New York footage was shot by Eric Mittleman.
Carnivore is available in numerous collectible iterations including both a limited deluxe 2CD box set and digipak as well as 10 colored vinyl variants with some featuring exclusive LP/CD bundles as well as retail exclusives from FYE (purple vinyl) and a U.S. indie retail exclusive white vinyl. More information, including links to the various offerings, can be found here: https://bodycount.lnk.to/Carnivore.
Body Count recently announced a pair of New York events: a March 15 performance at Webster Hall as well as a Revolver & SiriusXM Liquid Metal sponsored listening party on March 3 at Sony Square NYC. Ice-T will be talking with SiriusXM Liquid Metal’s Shawn The Butcher on the inspiration behind Carnivore. The Q&A will also be live streamed on Revolver and Inked Magazine’s Facebook pages.
