CROWD-SURFING 501 WITH EVERY TIME I DIE
We haven’t talked much about Every Time I Die’s New Junk Aesthetic since its Fall 2009 release, despite a 4-out-of-5 horns writeup by Sammy O’Hagar and a fun follow-up interview with guitarist/beardo Andy Williams. But New Junk Aesthetic was pretty (pretty, pretty) good. I guess ETID just haven’t given us much to talk about lately.
I’m usually not a fan of music videos that just stitch together a bunch of road footage, but the new ETID video for “After One Quarter of a Revolution” has a twist; it’s all shots off dudes stage-diving while the band is playing. Glorious, dangerous, brutal stage-dives, including two nakee dudes who were apparently wasted or psyched enough to show their peen to an entire audience (and now, the world). There are also some great shots of dudes doing flips into the audience, “walking on water,” and yes, there’s the obligatory dude who’s WAY too big to crowd surf falling flat on his face. Awesome idea for a video.
