Couple Hundo : “Prescription Sunglasses” (Punknews Exclusive)

We are super happy to bring to you the latest music video for Brooklyn based Couple Hundo. The song is called "Prescription Sunglasses". The track is taken from their self-released EP titled Have A Great Summer. The band would describe themselves by saying:

"I'd say we're going for a Leatherface covered by Archers of Loaf sound. Three guys that have been in bands around Long Island and Brooklyn for a long time. And one girl from Philadelphia that plays in a bunch of things now."

Cables & Arms: "Hang the Moon" (Punknews Exclusive)

Cables & Arms: “Hang the Moon” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut “Hang the Moon,” a new video from SF post-hardcore punks Cables & Arms!

"Hang the Moon" is moodily melodic, the video portraying an anxious Promethean struggle with a sound that is a complimentary nod to the melodic hardcore scene of the late '00s, but all grown up.
“Hang the Moon” is featured on Cables & Arms’ debut album, Framing Defeat for the Critical Eye, out now via Wiretap Records. You can check out the video below, and pick up a copy of Framing Defeat for the Critical Eye on white vinyl here.

Space Raft: "Paper Airplanes" (Punknews Exclusive)

Space Raft: “Paper Airplanes” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Space Raft!

"Paper Airplanes" is a trippy little number that borrows from Britpop, garage rock, and glam. The video is suitably weird, featuring a 1950s spaceman traversing a weird landscape just as the band traverses those early LSD influenced genres. At once, the song is innocent and weathered, saluting and tearing down the culture that would eventually give rise to Elton, Lou, and David.

The song is off their recently released single out now via Dusty Medical Records. They'll have a full length called Rubicon out soon. Check out the new video below, right now.

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!

"Good Boy," which is named after the band's tune of the same name, is one part philosophy lesson, one part slam poetry, one part documentary about the band's venue The Fun House, and one part music video. It is trippy in the best possible way.

Of course, the song "Good Boy" is off Brain Freeze [EP] from last year. Order that here. You can find info for the video release party right here and see the new video below.

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

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.
