Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel Premiere "Speedbag" Music Video

Today, we've teamed up with Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel to premiere their new "Speedbag" music video. You can check it out above. 

"Speedbag" is one of the highlights from Red Dragon Cartel's new album, Patina, which came out back in November via Frontiers Music Srl.

When asked about the bluesier sound of Patina, Lee told Guitar World in a recent interview: "Part of the reason for that is because this one was done more organically. The songs were written with everybody in the room, and then it was recorded pretty much like we did in the old days. So it just has that vibe to it."

"The other thing is that the last time we recorded with [producer] Kevin Churko, and his production is a little more modern-sounding," Lee continued. "But this one I think comes across sounding more like a product of an old geezer like me. [laughs] There’s more flavors. One song, there’s even a little bit that kind of sounds like Dick Dale."
