Former Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe has released a video for the song, Goin’ Down With The Ship, from the album, Blackout States,

Monroe says, “The song is not necessarily about sailing or seamanship as such – 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 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. Hope you enjoy it.”

Blackout States was released in 2015 through Spinefarm.

  1. How about updated the 36 year old picture of Michael? When was the last time the former lead singer played with Hanoi Rocks? 32 years ago when record stores still existed? All I am saying is alot of people are not familiar with these early 80’s bands , So writing the article like the band were playing arena’s last week is misleading.

    1. Rod,

      There are many people who don’t even know who Michael Monroe is, let alone that he used to be the frontman of the Finnish band. So, what is the big deal about mentioning it, even if it was a long time ago? Maybe, hearing his solo stuff would turn someone on to looking up Hanoi Rocks?

      As for updating the picture, I will gladly do that right now. Here is something else outdated, like Frankie says, “RELAX.”

    2. FACT !
      Anything that gets people into Hanoi Rocks, and by extension Michael Monroe, is a bonus, and well needed.

  2. I am so pumped, going to the Gramercy Theatre gig. It will be my girlfriend’s first Michael Monroe show. Last time I saw him was on Staten Island in ’89. You must see Michael, he is one of the best in the biz!

  3. Criminally underrated dude. Guy has been in the trenches for over 30 years grinding it out. One of the nicest guys in the biz you’ll ever meet. Will sign anything,anywhere,and will do it with a smile and a thank you,and not charge you $500 for the “honor”. How many can you say that about in this business of narcissistic,over-inflated egos…
