The video for "White Rabbit," the first single from Egypt Central's critically acclaimed album of the same name, has made its TV premiere on MTV2.
The Mason Dixon-directed video was shot in Nashville.
White Rabbit was released May 31 on Fat Lady Music/ILG and debuted at #78 on Billboard's "Top 200 Albums" chart and on SoundScan's "Current Hard Music Albums" chart at #5.
The song is quickly rising up the Active Rock Radio chart, where it currently sits at #18. It's being spinned on over 60 stations nationwide, including SiriusXM's "Octane," WXTB (Tampa), KUPD (Phoenix) and WWBN (Flint).
Rave reviews have been pouring in for the record as well, including:
"...the album doesn't have any letdowns. Fans already won over by Egypt Central's previous record will recognize the band's original sound here, and new listeners will be taken a wild ride to a strange, dark wonderland and back. Follow the White Rabbit." - Revolver
"Egypt Central have managed to take the best qualities of turn-of-the-century nu-metal, update them for the modern world and add a dark melodic sense to create a sound that's sinisterly catchy." - Guitar World
Egypt Central - John Falls (vocals), Joey Chicago (bass), Blake Allison (drums) and Jeff James (guitar) - is in the midst of their "Down The Hole" U.S. headlining tour, with various radio and summer festival shows along the way including WJJO Band Camp in Madison and Summerfest in Milwaukee.
They've also added a few shows with Hinder to their ever expanding tour schedule.
