Los Angeles-based hard rock band MY RUIN has released the video for its new song "Religiosity". The track comes off the group's new album, "Throat Full of Heart", due in January 2008 via the band's own imprint label Rovena Recordings in association with Cargo Records UK. The CD was co-produced by MY RUIN guitarist Mick Murphy and Duane Burda.
Nasty and Sinister, two guerrilla-style female filmakers from England (who shot and directed the MY RUIN video "Spilling Open" while travelling with the band and documenting their Brutal Language UK tour in early 2006) created the new video for "Religiosity" for the group's DVD, which is featured in the album's digipack edition. "We wanted this video to be totally different than our last one so we asked Nasty and Sinister, who have also created videos for our spoken-word side project THE LVRS and Mick's metal instrumental recordings 'Neanderthal' to edit something which would represent the song using various vintage stock footage and religious imagery instead of having the band actually perform," stated vocalist Miss B. "We really love what they came up with. [Even though] it might be misunderstood by some, it definitely fits the song and keeps with the theme of the new album which was very important to us as a band."

The disc also includes the music video for the song "Ready for Blood", directed by Ben Le Vine, with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video along with a mini-movie of MY RUIN with never-before-seen footage of the band in the studio during the recording sessions for the new album as well as a personal photo/video film created by Miss B, titled "Through The Wound", which documents her accident from the injury to her recovery this past year.
