We are pleased to premiere Brooklyn, NY’s Warn The Duke’s animated video for the track "Noreaster", taken off their album "Ghost Be Gone", which came out last year via Wiretap Records.

With comparisons to 80's/90's alt/punk like The Replacements and Kid Dynamite, Warn the Duke features members of River City Rebels and Big D And the Kids Table. The record was produced by Jay Maas of Defeater fame. Check out the video below.

Warn The Duke singer/guitarist Dan McCool comments on the song:

"Noreaster is a song I wrote in 2014 in NYC, when it snowed every day for like 5 months. At the time, I was listening to a lot of mid 90s Social Distortion and Husker Du. I wanted to write something about personal losses that was loud, sad, but lyrically defiant in the face of hopelessness. We tried to be really simple with the video idea. It was inspired by just having grown up in the northeast, and the idea of dark storms you feel like you can't escape, inside and out. It was animated by Dom Bloink who did a lot of other animated videos I really dig from Grimes and The Kills."

The band performs this Friday August 20th at O'Brien's Pub in Boston for their Vinyl Release Show of "Ghost Be Gone". You can pick up the 12" LP via Wiretap Records or listen/download the album digitally via the band's Bandcamp page.
