Multi-platinum selling artist Rex Brown has debuted an all new single and music video for his track “Buried Alive”. This is the third single behind "Train Song" and "Crossing Lines" from his upcoming LP that were previously released. Watch the video now on KNAC.COM right HERE.

Rex once again partnered up with Justin Reich (ZAKK WYLDE, ACE FREHLEY), who also directed the video for "Train Song". This is the second music video being released from Brown's debut solo effort.

"Justin once again did a fantastic job," says Brown. "The video captures every bit of emotion I had when I was writing the song as it's a very personal song for me."

The video was shot in Nashville, TN where the record itself was recorded and produced. Rex's bandmates are also featured in the video. Lance Harvill, who also co-wrote most of the LP with Brown plays lead guitar. Joe Shadid plays rhythm guitar and longtime friend of Brown's and TYPE O NEGATIVE member Johnny Kelly plays drums. Caleb Sherman can be seen on Keys and lap steel as well.

"Buried Alive", "Train Song" and “Crossing Lines” are now available on all streaming platforms and as an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the LP today will get the track as a download instantly.

Rex Brown will release Smoke On This... on July 28th, 2017 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music).

Brown’s solo debut strips away any boundaries and preconceived notions, reveling in a newfound freedom to express all of the various shades of the man whose name is out front. The song “Fault Line” helped him find his voice. “That was the very first one I sang. After I got that one, I knew that I could do it, and Lance was my biggest motivator in finding that voice. Up until that point I just wasn’t sure.”

From there, there’s the brilliantly straightforward “Lone Rider”, the monstrous In Through The Out Door vibe of “Crossing Lines”, the PINK FLOYD reverence of “Best Of Me”. “Get Yourself Alive” is something of an ode to “Strawberry Fields Forever”, but with a swift-kick of rock n’ roll. It’s rich in nuance, with Indian tandoori and layers of vocals. The extremely catchy “Grace” is “something you would never expect to hear off a Rex Brown record and that’s exactly why I did it. It’s just a really great song, period. Bottom line.”

Who is Rex Brown? To the industry, fellow musicians, and a legion of fans around the world, he’s the bassist for PANTERA, one of the biggest hard rock and metal acts of the past few decades, alongside NIRVANA and METALLICA. They had Number One albums with minimal support from traditional commercial outlets and went platinum several times over. PANTERA rode a groundswell of underground loyalty, earned through several years of blood, sweat, and road beers. Five major label albums, countless international tours, and a series of carnage-filled home videos cemented a legacy as large as their massive riffs and the band’s insatiable appetites for mayhem, authenticity, and brotherhood.

“My motto these days is ‘Shake some shit up,'" Brown declares about the new LP. “I’ve had my ups and downs, like anybody in this business. I wanted to feel like a true artist again, where I can write and record songs without worrying about any of the bullshit.”
