The Virginmarys, a UK based three piece, have released a video for their latest single, Into Dust. The staggering new track is an erratic call to arms about the disillusionment and boredom that creeps into everyday life. With jagged riffs and an erratic bass line, the song bleeds with a sense of urgency that is impossible to ignore.
“Give me something I can feel
give me people I can trust
as I sit back with my poker face
and I crumble into dust.”
The band will also be opening for Shinedown on a string of west coast dates starting March 1 in Portland, OR through March 16 in Fargo, ND. The Virginmarys have previously played America, including a couple surreal radio-sponsored festivals in stadiums with Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, a mammoth 14 shows at SXSW in 2013, not to mention a spring tour with Buckcherry in early 2014.
The U.S. has been good to the band due to past singles Dead Man’s Shoes and Just A Ride both reaching the Top 30 Alternative and Active Rock charts in the U.S. and Canada. “America was a massive headf–k really,” said bassist Matt Rose, “but it was an amazing experience, because you hear so much about it as a musician, to actually be there was a dream. It was insane to think that I played in Las Vegas. I never thought that day would come. “
Look for The Virginmarys to take part in SXSW in Austin, TX again this March as well.

About The Virginmarys: Hailing from Macclesfield, England, the Virginmarys make anthems that scream with all the potent sound and fury of modern punk acts, brimming with the honesty of prime British rock of the early 1970’s, before the wizards and capes overcame the attack and dynamic.
