Video: The Interrupters – “By My Side”

Here is the new music video for The Interrupters with the song “By My Side.” The song is from the June 24th, 2016 release of their latest 14-track record, Say It Loud, released via Hellcat Records. The Pier was able to catch The Interrupters LIVE over the weekend at the Vans Warped Tour in Mountain View, CA where after the third song the guitarist commented to the audience that lead singer Aimee Interrupter was currently battling pneumonia but that wasn’t going to stop her from giving a rocking performance. The audience wouldn’t have known had he not made that comment because she had as much energy as ever, getting audience participation on song choruses and her voice was flawless. Very fun and energetic show. The show must go on. Pick up their latest album on iTunes by clicking HERE! Enjoy the song and video…
