CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) have debuted a brand new music video today titled “Replaceable” exclusively via LOUDWIRE. Directed by Produced/Directed by JOFFco, this is the second music video we’ve seen from their all new LP The Phoenix.
“The video for ‘Replaceable’ captures just how ridiculous the whole process of making a music video is,” says the band. “And how bands have so many bad ideas pitched to them so we figured we put a bunch of them into one video. It’s a comical look about our hunt to find an average director to shoot a decent music video and the struggle that ensued. Enjoy!”
The band initially released the “Replaceable” single last month exclusively via SIRIUSXM’s OCTANE channel, “Head For A Breakdown” via CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and “Days Of Self Destruction” (Feat. Brent Hinds) before that. Both can be streamed below.
CKY released The Phoenix on June 16, 2017 via eOne Music. The all new LP is the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed at Rancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA.
The cover art for The Phoenix was completed by chandelier maker and artist Adam Wallacavage. The band commissioned Wallacavage to create a one of a kind piece for the cover.
The band is currently on 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band’s first time returning to the Warped Tour since 2000. Before that, CKY finished a highly successful thirteen show run of the UK, most of which were sold out.
CKY will also be participating in the 2017 JOURNEYS ALTERNATIVE PRESS MUSIC AWARDS, FUELED BY MONSTER ENERGY tonight in Cleveland, OH. Fans around the world can watch the show live from anywhere! The APMAs will broadcast live starting at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT) at https://music.amazon.com/apmas
Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.
He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005.
Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively.
“We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right,” Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty. “None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”
