Fast-rising U.K. death dealers Venom Prison are currently rampaging the U.S. on their first American headlining tour (see dates below). And while the band’s sophomore LP, Samsara, released back in March, is reason enough to get your ass out to see the quintet, the new live-performance video for album track “Self-Inflicted Violence” should knock any would-be fence-sitters the fuck over the edge. Guitarist Ash Grey breaks it down for us.

“‘Self Inflicted Violence’ is taken from our album Samsara and captures the raw approach of Venom Prison on the road, playing shows day to day. This footage was filmed earlier this year in Europe but we’re back on the road in the U.S. right now. The purpose of the video was to capture the energy of our shows for people who are yet to experience Venom Prison live.”
