Video Premiere: The Virginmarys – Portrait Of Red (live)
Classic Rock is proud to premiere the new live video from The Virginmarys – view Portrait Of Red below.
It was filmed at the Snowgoose Live, Macclesfield, in June, months before the three-piece won the Breakthrough Award at this year’s Classic Rock Roll of Honour, held in London last week.
Ally Dickaty, Danny Dolan and Matt Rose were in attendance to be handed their gongs by Ginger Wildheart, who described them as a prime example of musicians staying true to their art in the face of industry pressure.
Bassist Rose said afterwards: “Ginger said some amazing shit that absolutely epitomised what we’re about, you know.”
Guitarist Dickaty agreed, adding: “People need to play stuff that comes from the heart rather than putting out stuff they think will be popular. When music comes from the heart it gets your attention straight away and you think, ‘What’s that?’ I think more bands need to be doing that.”
The Virginmarys have been earning their stripes since 2006 and released debut album King Of Conflict this year. Both singles Bang Bang Bang and Just A Ride became iTunes singles of the week.
