Graham Colton - "Born to Raise Hell" (video) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

7 November 2013

What makes "Born to Raise Hell" eerie and surreal is how Graham Colton delivers his chilling story in bold, muscular pop tones.
 

Premiering here on PopMatters, “Born to Raise Hell” offers a sneak peak of Graham Colton’s upcoming album, Lonely Ones, scheduled to be released on 21 January 2014. Using an encounter between the father of collaborator Chad Copelin and the serial killer Richard Speck as the inspiration for “Born to Raise Hell”, the song’s vivid video depicts a harrowing story imagining how someone might circle the downward spiral of escalating violence. What makes “Born to Raise Hell” all the more eerie and surreal is how Colton delivers his narrative in bold, muscular pop tones, perhaps taking a few cues from fellow Oklahoma City native and friend Wayne Coyne.
