English anthemic rockers MASSIVE WAGONS have released an official music video for their song “Under No Illusion”. The track was the first to be revealed from the band’s eagerly-anticipated new album, ‘Full Nelson’, which releases worldwide on August 10th.  The video was filmed in and around the band’s spiritual home of Lancaster.

“Under No Illusion” is a song which as soon as we’d jammed it together, we kinda knew this was gonna be a single,” comments MASSIVE WAGONS frontman Baz Mills.  “It had that immediate feel.  Some songs take the recording process before they are considered for a single release, but Illusion was instant.  It’s a song which I suppose from a personal point of view is letting other bands know – bands on the rise – to watch out for the clowns in the industry; selfish people out purely for their own gain.  Nothing wrong with furthering yourself at all, just not at the expense of others.  We’ve met loads of ’em, dealt with a few; so hard to spot often till it’s too late.  A band absolutely needs a trustworthy team around it.
“The song also just says don’t be scared to make decisions for the good of yourself and the band.  Do your thing.  I think when a band are doing what they feel best at – writing songs and performing without being contrived or staged, and just being themselves – it is a much more enjoyable process and it comes across in a much better way.  Sometimes easier said than done, I know.  There is a message in the song explaining exactly what I think of people praying on bands.  I always loved the idea of stuff in song lyrics that is hidden or cryptic – gives it a new angle.  I really enjoyed writing this one; thanks everyone for listening to it.”
‘Full Nelson’ features 12 roaring tracks, including a brand new version of “Back to the Stack” – the band’s tribute to legendary STATUS QUO rocker Rick Parfitt as well as the recently-released single “Robot (Trust in Me)” for which the band worked with famed BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST producer/engineer Mike Exeter.
