The lead single from their highly-anticipated new record was also revealed that day in the form of “Chains”. It’s a driving four minute anthem pulsing with urgency. And also the band’s signature blend of visceral energy and raw thought-provoking lyrics.

The video opens with a quote from American author, Florence King. It directly addresses both the narrative of the video and the lyrical topic of the song. Its stark visuals leave the viewer hanging on every vocal part and counterpart played out by the Bonnette brothers.

Quote from Florence King to open the “Chains” video:

People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch”.

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands and labels. In parallel, I also worked for other magazines and webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
