Friday’s Spirit is a punk rock band hailing from Salzburg, Austria. The band consists of Dave (guitar and vocals), Flo (drums and vocals) and Phil (lead guitar).
After an EP titled “Parts”, released in 2017, the band is now back with a brand new single, titled “TSTT”. This single is officially available on major streaming platforms since January 28th 2019.
On this new single and music video, the band comments:
“TSTT actually means Trans-Siberian Thunder Tiger and is based on a real story, reported by the UK newspaper METRO. In 2016, a man, allegedly from the Czech Republic, was filmed by hidden cameras, running 15 and a half miles naked through a forested area near the Czech-Polish border. The police later on reported that he had taken the hallucinatory drug LSD, which made him feel like he had become a Siberian tiger.
At first, when we read about it, we were just joking around. However, the more we laughed and talked about it, the more we were trying to re-create the circumstances that had led to this bizarre transformation. In fact, he also mentioned that he had always felt connected to the animal. So, hands down, how cool is that? I mean, you could take it as a reference to ‘wanting to break out’, or you could just picture a naked man running through a forest. We prefer the latter.”
The band continues: “The shooting was great and we had tons of fun! At this point, we’d like to give a shout-out to Max and Dominik from artofsight.productions for hours and hours of hard work! Also, shout-out to the actor, Raphael Steiner, a good friend of ours. He truly was the best person to bring about the story. And only when we watched the scenes for the first time, we realized how dependent a good video is on acting! We’re just super happy about the result, and that our fans, including many new people, will enjoy listening to TSTT.”
