Ruby the Hatchet released their newest album Fear Is A Cruel Master last fall via Magnetic Eye Records, and we're now premiering their new video for its song "The Change." It's an extremely catchy dose of retro metal, and the band says:

If you’ve seen us out on the road then you’ve seen us at our best. We live for our live performances and authentic crowd connections. When filming our record release show in Philly for a Bandcamp live stream (more on that TBA soon), we wanted to capture just that: the energy we get from all of you. It was a special night with friends and fans that we are now able to share with anyone who couldn’t make it via our video for ‘The Change,’ a song perfectly fit for encapsulating the last 5 years before releasing our latest album. Growth, the pains that go along with it, letting go of what no longer suits you and holding tight to what always will…’I never wanted to change, too wild to stay the same…’

Check it out below.
