Posting at a more usual time today, here’s your Tuesday hit of new videos. Enjoy and don’t forget to share them if you like them – every listen helps the bands out!
Fearless – “Blood Sweat & Shine”
Fearless’ debut single “Hillbilly For Life” was self released in 2015, produced by Kristoffer Folin at Purple Skull Media in Stockholm. It was followed by a music video and since then they have been touring around Sweden and have played at some of the biggest Rock Festivals such at Sweden Rock Festival and Skogsröjet. They also did a USA tour 2015 travelling from east to west… through, of course, the South.
The SoapGirls – “Rather be Dead”
The SoapGirls unveil their new video for the primal and emotional break up song “Rather Be Dead”. “Rather Be Dead” is an outsider anthem that’s both androgynous and audacious.
The song’s sardonic lyrics and hooky chorus shines, with their ever-so-edgy vocals, fuzzed guitar and throbbing bass creating an insouciant blast of grunge-rock.
“Rather Be Dead” focuses on “the rage and the hurt that a person feels and goes through when learning that the person they counted upon the most betrayed your confidence” while the the startling video is more “from an angle of voyeurism as it shows all the most vulnerable emotions and has no pretence to it.”
Note that the video features boobies so me be slightly NSFW, depending on where you work.
Dead Animal Assembly Plant – “Rise With Me”
“Rise with Me” is an intense and deliberate music video highlighting the darker side of the human persona; written to show the effects of media outlets highlighting mass shootings in modern day America. DAAP, a Portland-based “down and dirty” industrial act is known for their theatrics and incredible live performance; and now music videos.
DAAP has shared the stage at Knotfest with Slipknot, Korn, Bring Me The Horizon and more. Directed by Karl Whinnery, Rise with Me was filmed during Oregon’s most extreme winter in 40 years under brutally cold and snowy conditions.
Young Fox – “Sometimes The Monsters Win”
Pittsburgh indie rockers Young Fox have released a lyric video for “Sometimes The Monsters Win”, a track off their upcoming debut LP Sky Beats Gold out March 10 on Spartan Records. Guitarist Marty Lunn calls the track:
an ode to failing…an acknowledgment that the first step in solving a problem or addiction is that you won’t win all the time, and that each time you fail, your job is to remember that feeling and allow it to change your heart.
Pre-order Sky Beats Gold on limited edition LP/digital via Spartan Records. All pre-orders include an instant download of “Sometimes the Monsters Win”.
