Watch Hanoi Rocks Singer Michael Monroe’s New Video for ‘Goin’ Down With the Ship': Exclusive Premiere

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Former Hanoi Rocks vocalist Michael Monroe is ready to premiere the new video for “Goin’ Down with the Ship,” the latest single from his Blackout States solo LP.

Monroe’s label, Spinefarm Records, promises that the LP is “hard-hitting and honors tradition while searching for some new kick-ass ingredients to mix into the primordial rock ‘n’ roll stew” while highlighting a band lineup that “gives the more melodic material a punky attitude that the songs wear with style.”

“The song is not necessarily about sailing or seamanship as such,” says Monroe. “It’s basically about us getting on the tour bus and hitting the road with our band. Ville Juurikkala, who shot the videos for ‘Ballad of the Lower East Side,’ ‘Stained Glass Heart’ and ‘Old King’s Road,’ has done this new one too. It was pretty easy to make, and includes some footage shot by us, the band, while we were on tour. I think the video has a good vibe and we’re all happy with the way it turned out.”

Monroe and his band will be on the road throughout the winter promoting Blackout States. Keep an eye on his official Facebook page for more information and take a look at the complete list of currently scheduled concerts below.
