Crazy and the Brains: “Good Boy” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is very excited to debut the latest weird and wacky video by Crazy and the Brains!

Preview of  'Rebel Scum'

Preview of 'Rebel Scum'

Today, Punknew is presenting a clip from Rebel Scum, the DVD which chronicles the trials and tribulations of Knoxville's The Dirty Works.

Not so much a history of the band as a study in self-destructive behavior, the film follows the band as they collapse under the weight of depression and drug usage. Producer Francis Percarpio spoke to Punknews about the film:

"This scene took place after Christopher Scum went off on an alcoholic bender following an altercation with The Dirty Works' drummer (and fellow alpha male) Bernard. Some how he wound up in a dive motel that had, coincidentally, served as our headquarters/crash pad while shooting in Knoxville. We managed to help Christopher vacate the premises mere minutes before the police arrived to arrest him."

The video is out November 24 and you can pre-order here. You can see a clip from the film below, but beware, it is not for the faint-of-heart.

War On Women: “Say It” (Punknews Exclusive)

Punknews is very proud to debut the new video by War On Women.

"Say It," which is off the band's fantastic self-titled album, deals with the important topic of sexual assault. Frontwoman Shawna Potter spoke to Punknews about the video:

"For this video we wanted to highlight the work of The Monument Quilt Project, which is based in our hometown of Baltimore, as well as give local survivors of sexual assault and rape an opportunity to sing along with us, without shame or stigma.

Shooting this video was an incredibly moving experience for everyone in the band. We know that not all victims have the opportunity to speak out about their experiences, or are shamed when they do. For people who are ready to speak out, or need to, we hope this song can be a safe way to say 'I was raped' out loud. You're not alone."

The album is out now on Bridge Nine Records and you can check out the video below.

Crazy and the Brains: "Syreita" (Punknews Exclusive)

Crazy and the Brains: “Syreita” (Punknews Exclusive)

Punknews is absolutely thrilled to debut the new video by Crazy and the Brains.

In case you didn't know, Crazy and the Brains are fivedudes that make spastic, wild, wacky, punk that sometimes dips into surprisingly dark waters. They also have a xylophone in the band and it is great. The video for "Syreita" opens with frontman Chris Urban getting a glass bottle smashed in his face and then somehow segues to ski-masked ballet dancers storming a rooftop party. That is the perfect visualization for this band's music.

The track is off Good Lord [EP] , out on Baldy Longhair. Check it out.

Rubikon: "Vipers"

Rubikon: “Vipers”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new song by Rubikon.

Mastodon and Torche may have made thundering heavy metal cool again (thankfully), but, little did people know, Rubikon has been paying tribute to the almighty southern riff since 2000. On "Vipers," the band takes a firm grasp of classic '70s metal and drags it into the current day. Propelled by a swinging chords and stomping drums, the tune gives slight nods to ZZ Top, Nazareth and Sabbath. If you wear a denim vest with the sleeves cut off, you will dig this.

The tune is off the band's upcoming album, Delta, out August 21. You can pre-order here. Meanwhile, you can hear the new tune below.

Class of 86: “Phase Change”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Class of 86. The video is for the tune "Phase Change."

In the video, the band tears through some mid-'80s-inspired skate punk and crossover thrash during the most sacred of all shows, the glorious house show. But, during the revelry, one party-goer finds that he doesn't quite fit in with the group and gets booted from the house. He makes his way back home and well… Stephen King would dig this.

You can order the Future on Fire album at Paper + Plastick right here. Meanwhile, you can watch the video below.

Dead on TV: "Screwdriver"

Dead on TV: “Screwdriver”

Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Dead on TV. It's called "Screwdriver" and it's off the EP Creeper.

Between their nihilistic edge, high cheek bones and riffs based in blues-punk, the band takes cues from bands like The Dead Boys and The Pagans. "Screwdriver" is a slow burning number that swims in a dark, buzzing riff while vocalist Daniel Evans sings like he's just woken up from a rough… week… Stiv would be proud.

Creeper is out now and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can see the new video below.

Los Seis Pistos: "Punk Will Never Die"

Los Seis Pistos: “Punk Will Never Die”

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Los Seis Pistos. Based out of Chihuahua, Mexico, the band has made a name for themselves by blending together the different aspects of first wave punk. There's a little Ramones-core here, a little Clash worship there, some straight up rock n' roll over yonder, and of course, a few nods to another band that might have ripped of this band's name. But, when all of that is filtered through this unique cultural perspective, the band is something elese, entirely.

The track is off the album of the same name, out now. You can hear the new single, below.

Radiator King: “Salesmen”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video from Radiator King. Radiator King take that ominous, bayou twang and then spookify the whole thing up with some neo-gothic and alt-country tales. "Salesmen" finds frontman Adam Silvestri pulling a grainy voice out of his gut and spitting out Biblical phrases like "an iron fist to cast its print on the world…"

The track is off the recently released Document Untold album which you can order here. Meanwhile, you can see the new vid below.

Hot Lunch: “Slappy Sunday”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new music video by Hot Lunch! The video features the band blasting through a driving, hard rock number with bad ass riffs and badder ass solos. But then, halfway through the video, a taco-fight breaks out resulting in a high speed skateboard chase (perhaps giving the French Connection a run for its money?) If you like old school shredding -- both the guitar and skate kind -- you will dig this.

The tune is off the recently released Slappy Sunday EP, out via Scion AV. You can download that for free right here. Meanwhile, you can check out this high-speed-chase video below.

UK Subs: “New York State Police”

It doesn't get much more legendary than the UK Subs. The band has been kicking out three-chord bangers since punk's inception (and really, frontman Charlie Harper has been rocking out since 1964!) At the ripe age of 70, Harper is still kicking out the jams. To celebrate Harper's seventh decade, the band has just released the On the Road DVD, which features two complete live shows from late 2014.
