DC's Kill Lincoln have shared a 'Quarantine Dance Party' video for new track 'Ignorance Is Bliss'. The song is the latest to be taken off their upcoming album 'Can't Complain,' their first new full-length in 7 years.
Guitarist/vocalist Mike Sosinski tells Brooklynvegan: "I always pictured the video for “Ignorance Is Bliss' being a giant dance party with all our friends... but because of quarantine our options for getting together and filming were obviously a bit limited. We wanted to make sure if we filmed ourselves it didn’t look like every other quarantine video, so we tried recording ourselves dancing and singing to the song at half speed... which was WAY harder than it seemed with such a fast song. Either way the, the raw results had us laughing our asses off so we knew the idea would stick. We had a blast making this video, and can’t wait for the inevitable dance party the next time we get to play the song live."
KILL LINCOLN blends no-bullshit ska-punk with addictive rock anthems, throwing in the energy of a basement hardcore show for good measure. Their recklessly fun punk ethics collide with quality musicianship, sounding like the bastard son of Kid Dynamite and Streetlight Manifesto.
'Can't Complain' will be out Aug 7 via Bad Time Records.
