Multi Platinum rock band Trapt have collaborated with British boxer Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston, to create a joint promotional video for both their November UK tour and Marianne’s upcoming fight, that takes place in London on October 25th.
The video features Trapt powering their way through the sensational ‘Bring It’, from their 2013 Reborn album, interlaced with action from Marianne’s previous title fight.
The unusual collaboration came about when Marianne contacted Trapt’s Chris Taylor Brown with a view to using ‘Bring It’, both for her upcoming fight promo video as well as her ring walk music on the night, Chris was more than happy to oblige, however he also hinted at something far removed from the standard boxing promo.
Sure enough Marianne loved the concept and on learning that Trapt were due to tour the UK, just a few weeks after her fight, suggested that the video could be used to promote the tour also, which peaked Chris’ interest.
Within days the band’s element of the video was sent to London, where footage of Marianne’s previous fight against Hana Horacova was edited in to produce the promo video.
Speaking from his home in California Chris said.
“Marianne is exactly the kind of competitor that “Bring It” talks about – Someone who is not afraid to show people that they will not be beaten. As a huge fan of women’s boxing and boxing in general, it was an honor to have Marianne suggest coming together to make a new “Bring It” video to spread the word about her Oct 25 fight and Trapt’s upcoming UK Tour 16 Nov to 23 Nov!
“The video is cut with footage of Marianne doing what she does best!”
