93.3 KDKB is one of the U.S.’s longest running rock radio stations and is the first radio station to officially add ‘Lock N’ Load’ to their rotation. ‘Lock N’ Load’, was co-written by and features iconic guitarist Slash and is currently available at iTunes. Accompanying the track is a short film (with two different endings), produced by Melbourne-based production company, Oh Yeah Wow (Gotye, Clubfeet, Aloe Blacc).  Check out the “Live” and “Die” clips at their YouTube and feel free to post.
