Reno, NV progressive metal duo FOUR STROKE BARON has shared a new music video for "1000 Threads", taken from their fourth album, Data Diamond, out now via Prosthetic Records. "1000 Threads" is the third installment of their four part visual narrative for Data Diamond's blood soaked narrative thread that comprises a series of anthology tales.

Watch the music video for "1000 Threads" on KNAC.COM HERE.

Speaking on the music video's narrative, FOUR STROKE BARON comments: "William's shocking discovery of the truth is too much for him to bear. Robert is beyond possession and now in a state of complete capture beyond his control, and he knows exactly how to end it all."

Data Diamond is the sound of FOUR STROKE BARON at their most confidently unhinged. Originally conceived as two separate EPs (one purely electronic - Data; one heavy - Diamond) that would then meld together on one full-length release, the idea morphed into what is now the succinct suckerpunch of an album that is heading our way at speed.

Heavily inspired by their own work on Data Diamond's predecessor, Classics, Witt and Vallarino got to work in their laboratory creating the most potent, concentrated form of FOUR STROKE BARON possible. "We love Classics, we think it's one of the coolest albums ever", the pair state unequivocally. If they have any criticism of their previous work it is simply that they didn't push their own boundaries far enough, feeling like they took just a little too long to get to the point.

No such claim could be laid against Data Diamond - a dizzying sub-40 minute dive into the deranged psyches of its creators. The tracks on Data Diamond are lithe yet still allow enough room for idiosyncratic flourishes that mark this out as a true FOUR STROKE BARON opus. If Classics was a Man vs. Food belly busting plate of indulgence, Data Diamond is an upmarket Gordon Ramsay dish, served with a side of insanity. Finding a co-conspirator in CYNIC's Paul Masvidal, the trio get somewhat psychedelic on the album's eponymous closing - and most expansive - track, which also features VOLA's Adam Janzi on drums.

Thematically, this is their most murderous anthology to date. Those who find themselves embroiled in these tales include a Radio Shack CEO, an internationally acclaimed cyborg, an accidental trafficker of human body parts, and the leader of a death cult located in a convenience store. FOUR STROKE BARON's anomalous view of the world takes a particularly dark turn across the songs on Data Diamond, yet, as ever the macabre tragedies are dressed up with catchy melodies, pop hooks for days and a big shimmering bow of positivity.

Synths are a leading element across the length of the album, with more dark electronics seeping into the sound of the band than ever before - marking this out as the most experimental and intensely crazed the band have sounded to-date. Samples recorded out in the wilds of Reno, Nevada weave their own kind of horror throughout the deliriously anthemic tunes laid down at FSB HQ, paving the way towards an incalculable future with limitless possibilities of where their minds will lead them next. It sure seems that they're reaching a boiling point that will eventually tear a hole through spacetime. With this, their fourth full-length, FOUR STROKE BARON has blossomed into the self-absorbed, wildly confident, musically deranged partnership that they were always destined to be - and it sounds incredible.
