Bosstones Hope To Debut Video At Red Sox Game

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones will release their new album, "Pay Attention," on May 2, and now the merry ska-sters have indicated that they'd like to unveil the LP's first video at an upcoming Boston Red Sox home game.

The Bosstones just finished shooting a clip for "So Sad To Say," the lead single from "Pay Attention," with veteran director Marcus Nispel, who has previously helmed videos for Puff Daddy, Janet Jackson, No Doubt, Bush, and the Spice Girls, among others.

A representative for The Mighty Mighty Bosstones' label, Mercury Records, told MTV News that the Boston-based band had approached the Red Sox about possibly debuting "So Sad To Say" on the Fenway Park scoreboard monitor before the team's first home game, scheduled for April 11 against the Minnesota Twins.

The Red Sox will start their 2000 season on the road with a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners on April 4-6, and an official announcement about the possible Bosstones-BoSox video premiere

is expected to come before the opening game.

In other Bosstones-related news, the band has recently had to replace Nate Albert, the band's guitarist for the last 14 years, with a newcomer from Atlanta named Lawrence Katz. Albert decided to leave after completing session work on "Pay Attention" in order to complete his degree from Brown University.

The Bosstones have been breaking in Katz, as well as new tenor saxophonist Roman Flysher, during rehearsals over the last few weeks. The band plans to play a few scattered collegiate shows and radio festivals in April and May in order to be ready for its extensive summer jaunt as part of the Vans Warped 2000 Tour (see "Vans Warped Tour 2000 Maps Out Dates").
