IRON REAGAN Releases Blooper Reel From “Miserable Failure” Video


Announce North American Tour Dates


The Tyranny of Will, IRON REAGAN‘s Relapse debut is available now! This 24 song-wrecking ball of hardcore- punk/thrash fury.  The album was recorded with guitarist Phil Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, VA and self-produced plus it was mixed by Converge’s Kurt Ballou.  The cover art was done by Alexis Maybree AKA NevaSafe.


The Tyranny of Will is available for in multiple configurations and formats.  including standard CD, Deluxe CD that features a bonus track, cassette, LP and Digital Download. The album can ordered from Relapse Records HERE, bandcamp HERE and iTunes HERE.


Last week IRON REAGAN debuted their video for the song “Miserable Failure”, which was directed by Whitey McConnaughy (Red Fang).  The video can be viewed HERE.  Filming a video with IRON REAGAN is always an interesting experience, and it was documented HERE on this amazing blooper reel.


In support of The Tyranny of Will, the band will be hitting the road this fall including a special release show in Richmond, VA on October 3rd, dates with Eyehategod and an appearance at The Fun Fun Fun Fest.  A complete list of dates can be found below.


Fronted by the venomously lyrical Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste), on paper IRON REAGAN is a Richmond, Virginia super group (the band also features Phil Hall of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, etc. as well as Ryan Parrish formerly of Darkest Hour together with members of Mammoth Grinder).


In practice IRON REAGAN are WAY more than just a super group project. They have toured the world several times over leveling audiences with their furious live show.  IRON REAGAN is a fully formed raging band that have delivered one of the heaviest hardcore records of the year that is guaranteed to be on the top of both metalheads’ and punk rockers’ year end lists.
