Washington, DC's American Television have shared a video for the song 'Wasteland USA'. It's the latest song to be taken off 'Watch It Burn,' their new album that came out earlier this year on Wiretap Records.
About the song and the video:
“As we self-quarantine, local businesses shutter, and schools lock their doors it's looking bleak out there... Wasteland, USA wasn't written for this moment, but it's sure working double time as the Coronavirus takes hold of all things in the world. This was supposed to be satire ... I suppose we'll need to write some uplifting shit on the next record. Till then, here's a video for a song that might make you smile while the world is going to hell in a hand basket.”
About the album:
"Watch It Burn, is about things getting worse. In a world where selfishness and corruption still reign supreme, we can’t help but be angry. It feels like we’re regressing towards a misguided and idealized past. Corporations continue to treat workers like machines, and the gap between the haves and have-nots has widened. For us, that anger turned into 10 gritty, pop-laden punk songs."
