Groove metal influenced hard rockers TOY CALLED GOD are gearing up for the release of their third heavy-hitting full-length albumDirt On Your Coffin, out April 5th. Hailing from Brentwood, CA, the quartet have been making a name for themselves since 2011 – mixing crushing distortion, great hooks and an amazing ability to make your head bang…involuntarily! This is the band’s first album with new frontman Marcus Lance.
In celebration of the upcoming album release, TOY CALLED GOD have unleashed a brand new music video for the record’s lead track, “False Prophet”. Shot and directed by Mike Sloat (Testament, Machine Head, Lynyrd Skynyrd) on location at Brannan Island in Antioch, CA, the video depicts a priest’s personal struggle with the message he is delivering to his flock. It all comes to a head during a funeral as he loses the struggle with his inner demons, personifying the song’s title.
