Rancid's Lars Frederiksen shares dynamic new song and video

Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen shared a dynamic new song and video, “Gods And Guns”, from his debut solo EP, To victory, which will be released on November 26. According to Heavy consequence, the punk rock veteran teamed up with them to create the music video for “God and Guns”.

“God and Guns” begins with a folk acoustic guitar strumming. Frederiksen enters the arena with a strong presence. Her hoarse, almost screaming singing voice takes full control of the song and gives it intensity. While the song sounds very uplifting and joyful, the video transforms from one spooky shot to another. In one scene, a group of vultures eat a carcass, then a house burns down, then a menacing wolf walks through the woods. The music video does a great job of accentuating Frederiksen’s lyrics, as he talks about how it “won’t go right” and how everything is “screwed up”.

Frederiksen told Heavy Consequence: “This is a song I wrote for my sons Wolfgang and Søren a few years ago. The love for them is genuine and strong. It’s very personal in that sense. It’s a song that I think is appropriate for the time. According to Heavy Consequence, Frederiksen was inspired to record the To victory EP after giving a sold-out concert in Oakland in March 2020. He was due to play more solo shows, but the pandemic has put those plans on hold. So “God and Guns” is a song of the time; a song from 2020 and 2021.

To victory features solo performances of songs by former Frederiksen bands The Old Firm Casuals and Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards, as well as covers of songs by UK Subs and KISS. “Gods and Guns” is a new take on an Old Firm Casuals track.

Rance has just completed a American tour with the Dropkick Murphys which lasted from August to October and covered 34 dates.

1. God and Arms (The Old Firm Casuals)
2. Zombie Army (Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards)
3. Tomorrow’s Girls (UK Subs cover)
4. Homeland (The Old Firm Casuals)
