What do you think of our Top 5 Videos choices for October 2017?
1) Don Broco – Stay Ignorant
Don Broco are spoiling fans in the build-up to their third studio album. ‘Stay Ignorant‘ is another huge rock anthem from the Bedford four-piece, with danceable riffs and massive singalong choruses. The video captures moments from the band’s surprise sets at Reading & Leeds Festivals this summer, where The Pit tent was full to bursting with fans who had worked out that the advertised billing of “The Prettyboys” was in fact the mighty Don Broco.
2) Puppy – Demons
Puppy have created a video for new single, ‘Demons’. Directed and produced by Puppy drummer Billy HowardPrice, the video delves into their recent exploration of ‘Ascension & Transcendence’…
“The song is about learning to live with and accept your demons, and how they can even have a positive impact on your life. For the video we wanted to create something inspired by various cults, quasi-religions & pseudo-sciences that literally sell the notion that they can free you from unhappiness. Which is of course a lie as true happiness can only come from buying the music & merchandise of Puppy.”
3) Gold Key – Kerosene
Watford’s Gold Key recently unveiled their solitary new video for KEROSENE. Featuring viscous layers of sound and intricately placed motifs, alongside both haunting and explosive vocals from Steve Sears, the track reflects on feelings of loneliness.
“Kerosene is about isolation and feeling as though you have nothing in common with the people that surround you. It is a seriously unhealthy mindframe to have and I think the song addresses that too. It is much easier to isolate yourself from the real world than to face it and contribute something meaningful to it. It’s a dangerous spiral to start heading down. The video features my two favourite things – Space, and not having to appear in a music video.” – Steve Sears, vocals
“Our buddy Rusty made the first two Gold Key videos. For ‘Kerosene’ we wanted something a bit more unconventional. Rusty came up with the idea of this Ridley Scott inspired space theme. The lyrics bring to mind a sense of isolation and what’s more isolating than orbiting your home planet on your own” – Laurent Barnard, guitars
4) Anti-Flag – When The Wall Falls
Punk veterans Anti-Flag are back with another catchy-as-hell track and video to match! ‘When The Wall Falls‘ is taken off of the band’s upcoming album ‘American Fall‘ due out this week via Spinefarm Records. The black and white video sees the band doing what they do best as well as providing some informative snap shot information, including statistics on poverty levels and police crime in the United States. Worth a watch!
5) Brutality Will Prevail – Heretic
Hardcore quintet Brutality Will Prevail recently revealed their latest single ‘Heretic‘ which is taken from their latest album ‘In Dark Places‘, out now. At just 1:23 long, the band does their absolute best to cram as much action in energy into the track, showing fans exactly what it’s like to be at their live show…
