We are excited to share the music video for Shame On Youth’s new single, ‘Uniform,’ a noisy blast of garage-y hardcore punk to ring in the weekend. The song gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the band’s upcoming debut album, ‘Human Obsolescence,’ out Nov 27th on Go Down Records.
Consisting of Tomas Menapace (guitar/vocals), Matteo Cova (bass, vocals), Georg Pomarolli (guitar, vocals) and Federico Splendore (drums), Shame On Youth! is the product of the musical past of its members. It is this mix of backgrounds that gives the band its raging primal sound. The result? Distorted, fuzzed up tunes that are as fast as they are heavy.
The band had the following to say about the song and the video:
“A rusty bass riff and a raging voice kick the listener into the distorted loop of "Uniform" and this is the new single by Shame on Youth! taken from the album Human Obsolescence (out on November 27th). A thunderous and rough track that wants to lead straight to the heart of the music and imagination of the upcoming album. A jumble of primitive rock sounds describing a uniformed present. Uniform, as the pre-packaged shapes that our state of mind can take, uniform as the outfits that suppress and alter individuality. The song comes out with an animated video clip. A raw and ironic cartoon. A rabid tale from the sci-fi and dystopian imaginary of Shame on Youth!, which brings everyone, prisoners and warders, to face the same reality: Your uniform made of lies, your uniform state of mind.”
