Direct Hit! and PEARS did not just team up for the upcoming "Human Movement" split, they also joined forces for a dual video for Direct HIt’s “Blood On My Tongue” and PEARS’ “Arduous Angle”.
The two vocalists had this to say about the video:
“This is a weird video about two groups of people who hate each other, but recognize a common evil and fight against it together,” says Direct Hit’s Nick Woods. “On one side, you have this heroine who orchestrates a kidnapping and drugging to turn this smitten henchman into a weapon. And on the other, you have this kind of weird cleanup crew who paves the way for it to happen. In the end, the people at the top of the chain end up dead, and it’s the middleman tool who gets fucked over.”
“Part of this song is about being a kid who hears their parent fight,” says PEARS vocalist Zach Quinn. “Divorce for some is traumatic, for others, it is a lifesaver. Additionally, I think this is PEARS’ first song with a standard pop structure, which doesn’t happen all too often.”
“Human Movement” will be out Nov 3 via Fat Wreck Chords.
