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…

Video: The Hip Abduction – Higher

The Hip Abduction has released a new music video for the song “Higher” from the March 11th release of their sophomore record, Gold Under The Glow. The video follows a woman from the inter-city living, presumably taking the subway to work, while escaping to a an island paradise of serenity. The video captures some beautiful landscapes and “[There were] no phones, no showers, no air conditioners, no grocery stores, no way to escape the gnarly seas that rocked us in the middle of night,” recalls frontman David New about the filming of “Higher”. “We stayed on an old school 39 foot monohull for 10 days and explored the surrounding islands. At one point, we went 4 days without seeing another soul. It felt so good to get some down time and reconnect with what matters most in this life… friends and family. Getting off the grid and living off the land again felt absolutely refreshing, and in a way, a bit surreal. I’d dreamed of this place, but had never actually been before.” You can pick up their new album on iTunes by clicking HERE! Enjoy the song and video…
