Following a triumphant trek across the UK alongside Kreator, Arch Enemy and Shining (NOR), MARTY FRIEDMAN is excited to present his brand new music video for "Undertow," taken from his internationally acclaimed solo album "Inferno." The video features an unsullied look at Japanese culture, says FRIEDMAN (who currently resides in Tokyo): "'Undertow' gives you a look at the Japan not usually seen by the typical Japanese exports like crazy TV shows, ultra-cute singers and anime. It shows a day in the life of Japan as the Japanese see it, not the stereotypical Western 'Japanophile' view of it."
Regarding the video's concept, FRIEDMAN explains that "the 'Undertow' video attempts to show that when you see a thing of beauty, there is often an undercurrent of true sadness and hardship behind the scenes which creates the motivation to do something extraordinary."

FRIEDMAN has promoted "Inferno" throughout the past year with featured appearances on VH1's "That Metal Show," DirecTV's 'The Artie Lange Show' and FUSE's "Metal Head-to-Head" with Dillinger Escape Plan's Ben Weinman.
