Don Merckle and the Blacksmiths released a new video for the second track off their latest release The Pugilist. “Ballad of an Angry Man” was shot over the course of two days in Jedburg, S.C. and Givhans State Park.

“We filmed outside, which was a bit challenging because of the humidity and the mosquitoes, but it was fun and I think we got a good video out of it,” Merckle says. The band has also started filming a new video for the track “Murder on My Mind.”
