HUXLEY RELEASE VIDEO “IF I RULED THE WORLD

New Jersey’s HUXLEY have teamed up with Ghost Cult Magazine to stream their new video for “If I Ruled the World”. The track is from their upcoming self-titled debut which will be released on December 13th.

Hard rock is nothing without swaggering bravado, and Huxley have it in spades. The New Jersey natives ooze a sense of self-confidence on their début EP. This is not their first rodeo, though the band has transformed themselves from the previous guise of Endless Sacrifice, where for 10 years they played infectious metalcore. Feeling that a shake-up was necessary, they brought that project to an end with a highly successful farewell show,and changed a few members before starting up Huxley earlier this year.

That catchiness from their previous incarnation carries through to the new material. “If I Ruled The World” show a band bursting with eagerness and determination, but each track packs a formidable punch, with the same mature songwriting and anthemic choruses to put them in the same league as Alter Bridge and Velvet Revolver. The riffing is immediate, with subtle nods to technicality, and underpinned by a tight rhythm section. Singer Doug channels Corey Taylor in Stone Sour mode in his impassioned delivery, whether in softer moments or gritty belting on “Girl Thang”. The production, ably handled by Chris Kelly of Galactic Empire, allows each layer to shine, and with closed eyes it is easy to imagine these five leveling venues.

In short, these hits easily rival those of the stadium rock acts that Huxley are inspired by, and judging by the caliber of this EP, it won’t be long before they join them on those stages. Your new favorite rock and roll band is in town.
